Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar recently answered some interesting questions during an interview conducted on the platform of The Indian Express Adda. He opened up about his views regarding movies and also shared some serious thoughts about his personal life including the future of Dharma Productions.
Talking about the changing dynamics in movie production today he compared how things especially the statistics have changed after OTT platforms have become so popular. Karan Johar said, “OMG is an example. I mean it is a massive experiment to pull off a film that has Akshay Kumar in a strong supporting role and talks about sex education.”
The famous director said that he knows the story and it is a very brave film to make in the mainstream. That is because even today talking about sex openly and teaching them in schools is a big taboo in many parts of India and OMG 2 shows the lead actor fighting for the same in the film.
When it was time for the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil director to talk about his legacy, his love for movies, and his parent's influence on his decision to choose movie-making as his career, Karan Johar said some pretty interesting things. He revealed that his parents never wanted him to venture into Bollywood but neither did they stop him when he decided to do so. He does not as of yet know which career his children Roohi and Yash Johar will choose as they are just over 6 years now and are yet to watch a Hindi movie.
But he will support them in whichever path they select. Karan said that currently, he is building Dharma Productions with the aim to leave a strong legacy for his children which they would be proud of. But if his children decide not to become a part of Dharma Productions, he will think of leaving the studio to genuine filmmakers.
The interview also included a rapid-fire session hosted by none other than the Dream Girl 2 star Ananya Panday who debuted in movies with Karan Johar-produced Student of the Year 2.
