Mumbai: Director Karan Johar will attend the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), which is going to open on September 8.
This will be Johar’s second TIFF outing. He first went to the prestigious festival in 2006 and also screened there his romantic-drama “Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna”. The 44-year-old filmmaker shared the news on Twitter and thanked the artistic director of the festival, Cameron Bailey, for inviting him.
“Cameron… Thank you for inviting me… #TIFF16… See you on the 10th…,” he wrote.
The producer also retweeted the post of Bailey in which the Canadian film critic wrote, “@karanjohar in conversation at #TIFF16, Saturday Sept 10.” The filmmaker will reportedly be a part of the ‘In Conversation With’ segment at the festival.
He is likely to join Hollywood stars like Mark Wahlberg, French actor Isabelle Huppert, Brazilian actor Sonia Braga, and Palestinian filmmaker and actor Hiam Abbass, among others.
