Karan Johar is one of Bollywood’s premier filmmakers. While there are many who troll him and accuse him of creating an ‘insider’s clique’ of sorts in Bollywood, Johar has been laughing his way to the bank with his multiple projects and endeavours. Today, the filmmaker announced that he would be directing a film after a period of five long years.
Johar’s last big screen release was Ae Dil Hai Mushkil which has become an iconic film in popular culture for its dialogues and cinematography – not to mention the devastatingly heartbreaking Channa Mereya song.
“The last five years for me have been about making Dharma Productions, Dharmatic Entertainment, DCA, Dharma 2.0 grow and push the boundaries through the lens of new and talented filmmakers. But, personally, my primary passion always lies behind the camera – telling stories, creating a world filled with a multitude of colours, eternal music, emotions and I feel it’s time to go back to my favourite place…on set and to create what I adore the most – love stories,” Johar said in a video that he posted on social media. He added that he would reveal his next film today.
We can’t wait to see what he comes up with.
