Karan Johar says Ranveer Singh & Alia Bhatt are new era’s Shah Rukh Khan-Kajol: When they face camera…

Filmmaker Karan Johar has named Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh this generation’s Kajol and Shah Rukh Khan, who are considered one of Bollywood’s ever-green couples. Karan believes that Ranveer and Alia’s on-screen pairing comes close to Kajol and Shah Rukh, who he had cast in his debut directorial Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. While Alia and Ranveer have worked together in Zoya Akhtar’s 2019 film Gully Boy, Kajol and Shah Rukh have appeared together in a number of films including Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Baazigar, My Name is Khan, among others. 

Ranveer-Alia are new Kajol-Shah Rukh

In a recent conversation with Rajeev Masand, the filmmaker said, "When Ranveer and Alia face the camera, you will see that chemistry because they’re buddies, they’re friends. That friendship results in chemistry."

Meanwhile, KJo is directing the Gully Boy stars in his upcoming film Rocky Aur Rani ki Prem Kahani. The film also stars Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan, and Shabana Azmi in key roles and marks the return of Karan Johar as a director after Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016). It is scheduled to release on February 10,2023.

During the conversation, KJo was also asked about his preference between Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh. He answered, “I’ve had the best time working with both the talented gentlemen.” Karan Johar had earlier worked with Ranbir in the film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.  Speaking about Alia Bhatt, he said, “I’ve been accused about being partial to her. I’ve been accused of always looking out for her. But I feel that with such incredible talent like that, I feel privileged.” 

KJo had launched Alia with her debut film Student Of The Year in 2012 with Sidharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan.

Ranveer singh is such an attention seeker. Next he can make a naked movie and I'm certain KJo will love it.

Ranbir has no chemistry with Alia. Ranveer is excluded from having chemistry with Alia. Varun has the best chemistry with Alia, then Siddhart M. Ranveer has hot chemistry with his wife, Deepika and then with Anushka, Priyanka. Ranbir has matching pairing with Anushka, Aiswharya, Priyanka, Deepika. Movies with strong chemistry are always loved by the public and have high grosses. Karan's opinion is simply fanciful or a big gossip nothing else.

Karan, with his near-zero intelligence, thinks everyone in his average films are dream pairs. He is deeply mistaken .Srk-Kajol were good in a certain period. Ranveer is unmatched only by Deepika as a couple. Sridevi and Anil were good for another period...etc. Now no one has appeared after Deepika and Ranveer to grab attention, create top sizzling chemistry. The real, natural chemistry is noticed by many people is loved and then translated through several successful films that exceed 100 crores or more, not only through a single film of some success. Those couples, pairs that have several big films enter the public's conscience and are really loved, not an opinion given by a manager, director, producer who, without logic, makes assumptions that have nothing to do with the reality of the quality film
