Karan Johar opens up on the success of Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, says he is a ‘bit overwhelmed’ | Hindi Movie News

Karan Johar’s Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani is still going strong at the box office, with fans going gaga over the Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh starrer. Recently, Karan Johar opened up on the success of the movie and why it means so much to him.
Recently in a chat with film fanatic, KJo opened up on the movie and said the truth is that he is a a bit overwhelmed.He further went on to add that it is not that he was not hoping for this. However, the environment in the industry was kind of turbulent at the time and he hadn’t released a film that he himself has directed in 7 years.

He further went on to add that the last three years were not easy on him or the industry, and that there was a lot of negativity inside him that he had not addressed, which led to panic attacks before the movie released. He further went on to add it’s going to take a while before this film leaves his system.

Karan also added that though failure is very critical in anyone’s journey, this time he felt that he couldn’t afford to fail. This film had eventually reached a stage where it had to be like a make-or-break situation for the filmmaker.
In an earlier chat with Indian Express Adda, Karan had revealed that he would have cast “Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol” in the roles of Dharmendra and Shabana Azmi, if he had decided to make the movie 35 years later.
KJo has directed Kajol and SRK in his first movie, Kuch Kuch Hota hai, followed by Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and My Name Is Khan. During the same chat, Ananya Panday who is promoting her movie, ‘Dream Girl 2’, also joined Karan on stage. She also played a rapid fire session with him.

Ananya asked Karan who he would cast for ‘K3G’ if it was made today. Ananya slyly told him, that she knows all of Pooh’s lines and Karan laughed. He then responded and said, “okay, with Kareena‘s permission, I’ll cast you as Poo.”
