As much as Karan Johar loves to celebrate the success of a film, he doesn’t shy away from taking the onus if his film has tanked at the box office. After delivering super hit films such as Ae Dil Hain Mushkil, Kuch Kuch Hota Hain, My Name Is Khan and others, it is only natural for everyone to expect that if Karan announces his most ambitious project, it gotta be special and worthy of a blockbuster.

However, things didn’t go as planned for Karan Johar because when in 2018, the 47-year-old producer announced his most-ambitious project, expectations were sky high. While most expected that Kalank, which had an ensemble cast consisting of Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Madhuri Dixit, Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur, had blockbuster written all over it but sadly, post the release, the film didn’t perform well and as a matter of fact, the film fizzled out at the box office.

Now in a recent interview, Karan Johar opened up on the failure of Kalank and when he was asked about being the numero uno in Bollywood, courtesy his production house Dharma Productions, Karan had a rather honest reply as he said, “We just released a film that was a global disaster [Kalank]. It was a setback for us.” Adding on, Karan said that all the big ticket films have not proved their worth and in today’s day and age, it is no longer about big actors or sets attracting the audience but the content. “Writers are the strongest in cinema these days. We are in an industry that is acknowleding writers,” said Karan Johar. After Kalank’s fate, Karan Johar said that no actor or director should consider themselves as superstars because it is the audience who is the superstar in the true sense. “They will come to you if you give them strong content. If our film has failed at the box office, then we have given them [audience] something wrong,” said KJo. Now soon, Karan Johar will start filming his period drama- Takht starring Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar, Janhvi Kapoor and Anil Kapoor.
