Perhaps, this isn't Karan Johar's first time in Los Angeles, but he feels like being on a never-never land as Golden Globe Awards made him feel so. Actually, the young filmmaker was on top of his excitements hailing praises for Rahman as he fetched the awards for the 'Best Original Score' in the film ‘Slumdog Millionaire’. For us who could merely glimpse this history-making occasion in TV channels - yeah Karan we can just guess how you would have felt being present there witnessing the occasion.

Karan Johar calls it 'A Fantastic Juncture' as he was amidst the numero uno directors and personalities of tinsel town. 'I had grown up watching their films right from the age of 5' adds Karan.

He was there with SRK and his wife Gauri Khan, as Hollywood Foreign Press Association offered him special invitation. SRK went onto the podium for giving away the awards for the Best Drama Film that was bagged by ‘Slumdog Millionaire’. The film walked away bagging four Golden Globes.

Sources suggest that Karan met up with Anil Kapoor, A.R. Rahman and Danny Boyle to toast to the success of ‘Slumdog Millionaire’.

It surely is party time Karan!
