Karan Johar started a foundation with the name “Yash Johar Foundation.” He named the foundation after the name of his late father, Yash Johar, to carry forward his heritage. This foundation aims to better the standard of life of people in the entertainment industry. By advertising on his Instagram account, he said, “This has been a true work of love made in memory of my amazing father and to take ahead his heritage. I am pleased to launch the Yash Johar foundation, which has been set up to upgrade the quality of life for people in the Indian entertainment industry.”
He also added, “ while we have started the implementation of long-term sustainable ideas that will step up the lives of people and their families in the field, we have also made sure that quick solutions are being served to help them deal with the consequences of the ongoing global pandemic.”
Karan Johar also gave a voiceover in his video where he said, “From spots boys to cameramen, from editors to actors, several people made up his world. My father was an empathetic person who understood that being in the movies business is hard… which is why it gives me great delight to notify the formation of the Yash Johar foundation for the members of the entertainment industry.”
Financial well-being, educational and vocational teaching are the 3 prime supports that the foundation will provide. “Considering the current scenario, we are taking into account the effects and after-effects of COVID -19. We have started YJF covid response 2021 to label the immediate requirements such as food, shelter, and medicines of those within the entertainment who have been negatively affected by the pandemic. My father was a man who always searches for solutions and always educate me to look for them too. This is a step up in that direction.” he further added.
People from the film industry have appreciated Karan Johar for his thoughtful initiative. In the meantime, Karan will come up with multi – starrer film, “Takht,” on the directional forefront.
