For the next fortnight, tickets for all flights from India to London will come at a premium. And available tickets to the 2012 Olympics, beginning July 27, are rarer by far. For Karan Johar, however, these facts are trifles. The filmmaker has received an official invitation to join 506 dignitaries at the event. KJo, the official ambassador for Visit Britain is perhaps the only other Indian apart from Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to have received an official invitation. The PM’s invite comes from his British counterpart David Cameron as a matter of protocol. Karan’s invite comes from the Visit Britain authorities. He will catch the opening ceremony in a special box reserved for the who’s who of the world. “I’m truly humbled and excited”, says Karan of the honour, adding, “Had you asked me a few days ago if I intended to go to London — it’s virtually my second home — during the Olympics, I’d have said, ‘No chance’. I’ve been shooting non-stop for my film Student Of The Year and the TV show that I’m judging.
