      Karan Johar also took to social media to share his happiness and gratitude. Karan wrote, ”It’s not very often that I’m at a loss for words, but this is one such occasion... The PadmaShri. Such an honour to receive one of the highest civilian awards in the country. Overwhelmed by so many emotions right now. Humbled, elated and also thankful for the opportunity to live my dream everyday, to create and to entertain. I know my father would be proud and I wish he was here to share this moment with me. #blessed”

      For the uninitiated, Padma Shri is the fourth highest civilian award of the country. The list of 141 Padma award recipients for the year has been released on the eve of Republic Day.
