Karan Johar received his avatar on an amateur talk arrangement at the opening ceremony of the International Film Festival of India (IFI) as he sat down to talk with Justice Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore and actor Akshay Kumar.
During the 18-minute session, Johar praised Ratore and Kumar for their achievements in their fields, and also played the famous "Coffee Cafe" with both guests.
The director, who is usually known for his insolent sense of humor, remained formal during the conversation, which began with Kumar sharing his experience of working on Gold.
The film, directed by Reema Kagti, should be shown during the 49th edition of IFFI.
"I enjoyed myself when I was Gold. It was interesting to know what happened in 1948. We won our first gold medal, and we went to England and won it. It was an incredible story. I am grateful to Rome (director), Ritsch and Farhan to give me this film, "said Kumar.
The 51-year-old actor, whom Jöhar called a "poster-boy" of socially relevant films, said he had a chance, he would always support the film that promotes a social issue.
"I love them (these stories) and I enjoy them. Regardless of the movies I'm doing, I mean that, I'm not doing it just because of that. I'm really doing it and that's why I'm going ahead and doing it," Akshay added.
While asking the minister about the initiative that is closest to his heart among the double portfolios under his jurisdiction, Johar has twice shifted, as he said "an initiative."
Rathore comforted him with the words: "Everything is fine, it's perfect, take two!"
Johar joked at English schooling "today failed".
In his answer to the question, the minister said: "I have learned many of the two tasks, one is, of course, the Information and the Bi, where I meet many very creative people … I meet fantastic reporters who go to length to write stories to So, it's very, very educational, and the other is, of course, Sport (Ministry), where it's full of energy and communicate with young people, so they are both close to me. "
Homosexuals among the three on stage were evident while playing "Coffee Kefi". Johar asked Rator, which portfolio would be best suited for Kumar, and said the actor would be able to deal with the ministries of information and broadcasting, sports and defense.
"There is a dialogue that Axy said in the film, and our chief minister Manohar Parikar also says that" Do not be angry with me. "He gets a ministry of defense," added Ratore.
The director agreed with Ratore and praised Kumar for his dedication to the field of sports.
"My love for sports is huge, I called him and told him when I needed him or I could do something for my country for sport. I am always there," Akshay said.
The opening ceremony of the IFFI 2018 was attended by Goa Governor Mridula Sinha, CBFC's chief executive, Prason Joshi and producer Sidhart Roy Kapoor, among others.
