Karan Johar says Bollywood is being lynched for making a movie like KGF

KGF‘ Movie franchise has been like a tsunami in terms of success and the money it has made. The Yash star grossed over Rs 1100 crore at the box office and remains one of the highest grossing South Indian films of all time.

The North vs. South debate has blazed a new trail as after many Bollywood films hit the box office, pan-India films rule the roost. Karan Johar, who is a director and producer himself, addressed the dry spell B-Town producers are going through at the moment and mentioned that Bollywood can’t really think of making a movie like this KGF.

“Reading the reviews of KGF I think if we did that we would be lynched. But here everyone says, “Oh, it was a celebration, a party,” and that was it. I loved it. I loved it with all my heart. But I feel hum yeh banaate toh? It works both ways. I feel like we’re not given any leeway either and then we try to be someone else. So we are everywhere. We live a double existence and we have to stop,” he said.

His statement somehow ended up being material for trolls as many people agreed with him and eventually claimed that the creators here didn’t really have the guts or the vision to make a film like this.

As a producer, KJO’s next project is Jug Jug Jeeyo with Neetu Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Varun Dhawan and Kiara Advani and as a director he put on the director’s hat Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani with Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh.
