Karan Johar talks about massive success of Sunny Deol’s Gadar 2

Filmmaker Karan Johar is well known to everyone in the country. He has returned to direction after seven years with Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani starring Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh. The film became a huge success. Karan Johar opened up about his thoughts of Bollywood doing well with content.

In an event Express Adda, Karan Johar said, “I never thought there was any problem with what Bollywood was doing. We have had bad years in the past, and we were having another one or two bad years. It doesn’t mean, ‘Boycott Bollywood’, ‘They are dead’, ‘The South is taking over’. South is great. What they are doing is amazing.”

The director added that he was the first one to promote the Baahubali 2: The Conclusion pan-India. He said, “I was the first one who went with all reverence in my heart to Rajamouli sir and wanted to present Baahubali. I am obsessed with them. Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam, the four kinds of cinema have catered to different kinds of audiences and have done it with super conviction. So, I have a lot of respect for them. But I also have a lot of respect for the storytellers we have in our (Hindi) cinema.”

Talking about the recent blockbuster success of Gadar 2 starring Sunny Deol, he added, “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.”
