Karan Johar and SRK in DDLJ (1995)

He may just be 45 but make no mistake, Karan Johar is an industry veteran. He's made some of the most loved films in the history of Indian cinema such as Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham..., My Name Is Khan and been the driving force between a number of others.

Many of us will remember the all-time classic Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge as being the film where we glanced upon KJo for the first time. It wasn't much of a role but even then, he and Shah Rukh Khan got along! And at that time, Johar was just 22-23 years old.

However, he's now posted about a screen appearance from even before that! It is, in fact, Karan Johar's first-ever on-camera appearance, in a TV show called Indradhanush on Doordarshan! He's shared a picture where despite being all elbows and knees, even at the age of 15, you can still see the resemblance! 

Here's the post:

The show itself was pathbreaking by all estimates! It was about school kids who build a computer and contact aliens.  Time travel features prominently as well.

And people have let Karan Johar know they share the nostalgia:

nimeshnagar one of my fav TV serial those days.... How about making a movie based on that #TimeMachine? 😇
