Since those early days, K-Jo has gone on from strength to strength, achieving both, commercial as well as critical success. He was also known as the man with the golden touch among the inner circles, as he went on to direct blockbuster movies such as Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna and My Name is Khan with A-List Stars of Bollywood such as Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol & Kareena Kapoor among others. He then switched gears to direct newcomers such as Alia Bhat & Varun Dhawan in Student of the Year back in 2012. Besides such commercial successes, for which Karan Johar has won his fair share of awards, he’s also won critical acclaim for movies such as Bombay Velvet.

Detractors may say all that they want, but there’s no denying the fact that K-Jo’s got style and in spades. His latest movie, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil which is due for release in the upcoming festive season, shall see him teaming up with A-Listers like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma. The romantic drama is already creating a buzz thanks to its lovely soundtrack. Among his many talents as a writer, director, show host & costume designer, the man is also known for his appreciation of fine motors. In-fact, those in the know, say that when it comes to celebrity cars, K-Jo’s collection is right up there among the best.

The latest addition to Karan Johar’s fine collection of bespoke automobiles is the newly launched Jaguar XF. The mid-size luxury sport sedan is fresh off a mid-life sprucing up and now wears an all-new seductive exterior design. The car also has a considerably larger cabin, thanks to the longer wheelbase, even as the weight reductions to the platform, improves upon its driving dynamics.

Jaguar cars have always been known for their distinctive styling & quintessential British appeal, which offered a welcome alternative to the usual German flair. With the successful launch of the XF & owners such as Karan Johar, the brand once again demonstrates, that there’s enough connoisseurs out there for bespoke luxury in a sporting package.
