In a shoot like never seen before Karan wears his eclectic style with total aplomb. Shot in the stunning locales in Qatar, the shoot captures his vibrant persona to the T.
Parineeta Sethi, Chief Editor of GlobalSpa Magazine, says, “We have had a long relationship with Karan. It has always been a delight to shoot with him and have him grace our events. This shoot was very special as it was to celebrate his glorious 50th birthday. We couldn’t have chosen a better location than Qatar to do this and team Qatar laid out the red carpet for us.”
Karan Johar says he thoroughly enjoyed shooting with GlobalSpa and relates the magazine to his movies, “GlobalSpa is grand, glamorous, and gorgeous, just like my movies.” He further adds that shooting in Qatar was a very exceptional experience, “The destination is cultural and elegant. Everything here radiates warmth and hospitality.”
Berthold Trenkel, Chief Operating Officer, Qatar Tourism said, “It was a pleasure to collaborate with GlobalSpa on this special project and we were delighted to welcome Mr Karan Johar back to Qatar. The country is sophisticated, modern, and traditional at the same time – offering an authentic and friendly introduction to the best of the Middle East. Qatar is where cultural authenticity meets modernity. We are delighted to be able to showcase the warm hospitality and diverse experiences that Qatar has to offer as a leisure destination.”
