Karan Johar shared his experience of meeting Sridevi for the first time

Sridevi Death Anniversary 2024: Sridevi was a renowned actress who worked predominantly in Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, Malayalam, and Kannada films. With her charisma and beauty, she has left an indelible mark on the hearts of cinema lovers. On Sridevi's Death Anniversary, let's recall the time when Karan Johar shared his fanboy moment of meeting Sridevi for the first time.

Bollywood producer-director Karan Johar (KJo), who hosts the popular streaming chat show ‘Koffee With Karan,' has shared his fanboy moment with the late actress Sridevi on the show. During the recent season of KWK, sibling pair Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor took to the couch. During the course of the episode, KJo opened up about his undying love for their beloved mother, Sridevi.

He also talked about the first time he met Sridevi in person and was simply mesmerized by her aura. "I have to say one thing you do know, and I've said this time and again: how crazy and madly in love I was with your mother. I was her biggest fan

"You all have lived through different beats of technology. But for me, the video phase was the cinema halls. Nobody in the side of town that I lived in used to go and watch Hindi movies. That was the phase where your mom and Jeetu ji did movies. I've seen all of them," ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' director said.

"The time when I saw her finally, in ‘Mr. India', it was a premiere and the next time in cinema, and I was like, Oh God, I think I'm obsessed. So the first time I met her was actually in 1993 when she did a film for my dad, called ‘Gumrah' and I went to this photoshoot that Rakesh Shreshtha was shooting and my knees were rattling, because I was so nervous. My dad introduced me and I don't know what I said or what I have done and that's also the first day I met Manish Malhotra in my entire life."

"I thought he was really snooty and snobbish because I said, she's looking fabulous. He was like go, tell her and I was like, I can't just walk up to Sridevi and you're looking great. I couldn't do it," KJo added.
