‘We Lack Spine And Conviction, We Let Go Of Salim-Javed And Went To Switzerland’: Karan Johar Speaks On Hindi Film Industry’s Biggest Issue, Says It’s Pointless To Produce A Film Starring Newcomers In This Day & Age

The latest bollywood news is that Karan Johar stated that 'normaly' has made a comeback in the industry.

Karan Johar, popular for producing films like Dostana, Gehraiyaan, Brahmastra, Dhadak, Om Shanti Om, Main Hoon Na, Kesari, Student Of The Year, is a key part of the Dharma Productions. Besides, Koffee with Karan is a series also hosted by him that invites numerous celebrities to discuss and reveal about work, love and more.

The latest bollywood news is that Karan Johar stated that ‘normaly’ has made a comeback in the industry. However, there are specific problems. He talked about newcomers too, producing them in the film in these times.

“What’s happening in Hindi, the major belts — and I’m going to get slightly technical so that everybody understands — Mumbai and Delhi, which account for 60% to 70% of the number that comes in, they haven’t been behaving as consistently as they were pre-pandemic. So, what has been working is only the spectacle films, even if they’re dubbed films,” Indian Express quoted Karan as saying.

While stating that RRR, KGF: Chapter 2 and Baahubali 2 are the biggest hits films in the Hindi speaking belt, he said, “The market has been behaving very erratically… Always know, if the heartland and Gujarat step on board, there’s nothing stopping you. The moment those two territories are distant from your film, you can never do a very large number. So, Gujarat, and CPCI Rajasthan have to step on board, and that’s just how the business model works.”

“After Hum Aapke Hain Koun, everyone, including myself, decided to jump on the bandwagon of love, and Shah Rukh Khan was created. We let go of all our roots from the 70s, and in 2001 when Lagaan was nominated for an Academy Award, we were like, ‘Oh, now we’ll do these kind of films’ right up till the 2010s. My Name is Khan is still a root of Lagaan, in my head, which released alongside Dabangg, which again (changed trends) and people were like, ‘Now let’s start making commercial films again’. That’s the problem, we actually lack the spine and lack the conviction,” the fimmaker said.

Karan said, “We, who should be very grateful to Salim saab and Javed saab, we let go of that cinema and went to Switzerland.” He stated that in the current climate, he can’t give grounds for the costs that would go into a film starring newcomers, saying, “It’s pointless to market these films” adding that 8000 people visiting a mall to gawk at the actors doesn’t even translate to 80 people purchasing tickets to watch their films on the big screen.
