The 46-year-old actor, who was present at IIFA 2017 conference yesterday, shared, "Film industry is incomplete without Karan Johar."
When quizzed about why the ' Phantom' star feels such, the actor noted, KJo is the " Baahubali" of Bollywood.
Adding, "He is one of those arteries in the blood flow of the film industry."
Meanwhile, Johar also shared his journey as a host and said, "I realised I started hosting shows from 2000, which was a Filmfare award. It's been 17 years! I am glad that every year I have managed to get the job! The experience is always good, as I enjoy whenever I am on stage."
The 'Badrinath Ki Dulhania' star noted, "I am giving a tribute to my father. The tribute is gonna start with songs of my father's earlier movies like Hero No. 1, Coolie No. 1 and many other.
Then it will come down to recent movies like 'Main Tera Hero'. I will be dancing to songs from my father's film right from Swarg to Main Tera Hero to songs from 'Judwaa 2'."
He will also be launching the new versions 'Oonchi Hai building' and 'Tan Tana Tan' at the awards ceremony. IIFA will be taking place at the MetLife Stadium, New York on July 14 and 15.
