Karan Johar made a spectacular comeback to directing with Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani. The film, which stars Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt, has won viewers’ hearts and is now the highest-grossing Bollywood romantic comedy worldwide. Interestingly, two weeks after Karan’s movie was released, Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel’s Gadar 2 also became a box-office success. Karan Johar recently spoke about these successes and reflect on their significance on the film industry.
Filmmaker Karan Johar spoke with The Indian Express on the enormous success of Sunny and Ameesha’s most recent movie, Gadar 2. He also shared how happy he was with the single screens. Karan Said, “Gadar has blown everyone’s brains away because it was a film which was hugely successful in 2001, and now in 2023, it is breaking every record. I have been so glad for the single screens.”
When asked what he would do if he got access to Sunny’s phone, Karan humorously said he would send a message to the entire film industry by stating, ‘This is how it’s done.’
According to the filmmaker, Bollywood will continue to produce movies of this calibre. He pointed out that the inspiration for these blockbuster films comes from a firm belief in their ideas rather than from the need to win over critics or viewers on social media.
