"My Mother... My super hero! She has had two massive surgeries in the lockdown.. In the past 8 months. Her Spinal Fusion Surgery ( the brilliance of Dr Bhojraj) and her right knee replacement (the genius of Dr Maniar).
"She endured both surgeries with her indomitable spirit and a sense of humour... She is nearly 79 but has the spirit and zest for life as a millennial does! I am so so proud of her .. I love you so much Mama!" Karan Johar wrote alongside the video.
In the caption, the 49-year-old director wrote that his children Yash and Roohi, were waiting for their grandmother at home "with a cake and a song".
