Johar’s statue was unveiled this morning, with the director managing to take a selfie with his likeness in Singapore.
The producer-director was accompanied by mother Hiroo Johar at the event. Johar later went on to take a picture with the statue of Varun Dhawan also in the museum. Dhawan certainly found that amusing and responded on Twitter.
Dhawan is part of the lead cast of Abhishek Varman’s Kalank, set for release on 17 April. The film is produced by Johar’s Dharma productions.
