In a heartfelt post, Karan shared a profound moment from 25 years ago when he, lost and confused at a party, encountered the massive movie star.

Recalling the incident, Karan revealed that Salman Khan approached him and inquired why he was standing alone.

However, things took a surprising turn when Salman's sister spoke highly of Karan's script.

A massive movie star came upto me and asked me why I was standing by a corner … I told him I had been to several actors for a part but was politely rejected … the superstars sister is close to me so he graciously said she had spoken highly of my script and that I should meet him the next day to narrate the film to him…In my wildest dreams I never imagined I would even get the opportunity of a narration …I went with a prayer in my heart and a deep desire for a miracle and narrated the first of the film like my life depended on it…He looked at me at the interval point ( by then I was looking like I was at the Sahara desert and water could keep me alive ) kindly offered me water and said “ I’’m on!!! “ I was perplexed and said but “ you are in the second half” you haven’t heard it?"

He further continued stating, "He said “ I love your father and my sister will kill me if I don’t do this movie” and that’s how Salman Khan was in KKHH …. I am deeply grateful to Alvira and my father’s goodwill for making sure I had the perfect Aman and SALMAN KHAN in my debut film! Gestures and stories like this just don’t happen today! Happy birthday Salman ! So much love and respect for you always …Also 25 years later we will finally have a story to tell again… not saying any more than that 😉 happy happy birthday ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️"

Wishing Salman Khan a happy birthday, Karan conveyed immense love and respect. Additionally, he teased a future story, hinting at another collaboration 25 years later.
