Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, directed by Karan Johar stars Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh. The film will open in theatres next year.
One of the most well-known and respected directors in the Indian cinema business is Karan Johar. He has helmed hit movies including My Name Is Khan, Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, and Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, all of which had exceptional box office success. The talented director is currently anticipating the release of his upcoming film, 'Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani,' which will be in next year.
Several actors and directors came together on Friday for a round table conversation presented by Galatta Plus. The list included Varun Dhawan, Karan Johar, and Pooja Hegde. Anurag Kashyap, Karthik Sivakumar, Srinidhi Shetty and Dulquer Salmaan were also important.
Karan Johar asked about his thoughts on his career progression in 2022. Johar said, “I am very happy and very grateful for the success of Koffee With Karan. I feel that if everything fails (in my life), it will be a great backup plan. I was very nervous before it was released. I felt like this was my strong future and I am really happy with it. Anyway, jokes aside.”
“It has been a turbulent ride this year for many filmmakers. But it has also been a wake-up call. I think as someone, say as a studio head, if I have not taken heed to that wake-up call, then I'll be stupid. Delusion is a disease without any vaccination in our industry. And I don’t want to be deluded. Neither to the success nor the failure of films. I want to keep learning. Today has been learning. Every film that I have watched in the last couple of years has been a learning. The box office has been learning. The core conviction (in films) that is lacking has been something that I have learned,” he said.
Speaking to the interviewer, Karan said, “Now that you have mentioned Rocky Aur Rani…I mean why not. It is time to plug ourselves. That is the film (Rocky Aur Rani) that I have made with only conviction. If I think of logic or like sensibility or if I am saying anything profound or if I am going to have fun with the leading actors whom I love….then I just make that film. So, I hope that conviction comes across. I want to continue telling stories. That’s it.”
