I’m truly humbled and excited, 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. The 2012 Olympics is going to be a conglomerate of an epic magnitude. The memory of having participated in it, even as a spectator, is going to stay with me for a lifetime. It is London’s big-ticket weekend and I’m not about to miss it for anything in the world.
The filmmaker, who is busy with the shoot of Student Of The Year which is set to release on 19th October 2012 will halt the shoot of his film for this once-in-a-life-time opportunity. Karan will leave on July 26th for London and will be back in a couple of days to re-start shooting.
