Karan Johar is one of the prominent filmmakers in Indian Cinema. He has contributed to the industry with his great works. For the past few years, Bollywood is being criticized for not creating good content. Moreover, it is facing a downfall in Indian cinema with south films generating crores of business. The filmmaker Karan Johar spoke on the claims that Bollywood is being finished.
Bollywood movies have been castigated for many years now but ever since South films attracted worldwide attention Bollywood is on a downfall. Pusha: The Rise, RRR, and KGF 2 became global movies earning 1200 crores at the box office while Hindi movies failed to be much impactful and reach this point. There are claims that Bollywood being finished when big-budget Hindi movies failed to win the hearts of audiences.
Commenting on the same Karan told PTI, “It’s all nonsense and rubbish. Good films will always work. Gangubai Kathiawadi and Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 have done huge numbers. We have done numbers on JugJugg Jeeyo as well. Films which aren’t good can never work and they’ve never worked.” Further, he added that many big films like Laal Singh Chaddha, Raksha Bandhan, Brahmastra, and Rohit Shetty’s film lined up and by the end of the year there is a Salman Khan film too. “There’s so much to look forward to. We have all the love, we just need to create the right content to create it,” he said.
KJo further added: “To get the audience inside a cinema hall is not easy anymore. You’ve to make sure your film, trailer, and campaign is exciting to manage to get those numbers. You’re living upto your own reputation. Is it a stress? Could be. But it’s more of a challenge and I like taking challenges.”
