New Delhi:

Karan Johar, who keeps sharing his pout pictures on social media, has treated his Instafam to a rare memory from his childhood. We say rare because Karan is smiling in the picture. No pout. Surprising right? The filmmaker posted a throwback photo on his Instagram story in which he can be seen flashing his innocent smile. Little KJo, who appears to be in his teens, is wearing a white shirt and blue blazer in the picture. We couldn't ignore his cute dimples. He is posing with his mom Hiroo Johar and grandmom.

The Kuch Kuch Hota Hai director wrote a caption along with the picture. Recalling the memory with mom Hiroo and "dadi", he wrote, "My adorable dadi, who we all addressed as Mataji and my gorgeous mom!"

The 48-year-old filmmaker called his pout a part of his mid-life crisis. He added, "...When I flashed a smile with no mid-life crisis pout!"

Cut to 2016. We also found Karan Johar's mom Hiroo Johar making a pout. In 2016, the filmmaker posted a picture with his mom on social media in which he can be seen making a pout. Hiroo also tried it. "My mother's version of a pout," he tweeted back then. Cute, isn't it?
