Looks like Fawad Khan and Karan Johar are the new BFFs in town. For, not only are they rumoured to be collaborating on more projects together after 'Kapoor & Sons' and 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil', but also, the actor recently bagged the opportunity to co-host an award ceremony because of the filmmaker.

Says a source close to the organisers, “Initially, the organisers had thought of approaching a number of A-list stars for co-hosting the ceremony with Karan. However, when they discussed it with filmmaker, he recommended Fawad.

Adds the source,“ Karan has been working us for many years and we share a good rapport with him. So when he suggested that Fawad co-host the gala, we were more than happy to get him on board as he is a popular star both in India and overseas. He is the perfect fit.”

Karan and Fawad’s spokespersons remained unavailable for comment.

Recently, Karan even planned a special dinner for Fawad as he could not attend the director’s birthday bash in London.
