Known for making larger than life films, Johar is the head of the production house, banners Dharma Productions, and his latest release was Student Of The Year, that has opened to mixed reactions.
But for the filmmaker, who teamed up with a young brigade of newcomers — Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt and Siddharth Malhotra — it was about fulfilling his wish of making a campus film.
“Whatever I think of, I make. I wanted to make a campus film about friendship, so made Student Of The Year. It was different for us because we worked with newcomers for the first time. The whole idea excited me, so I made the film. Shooting with newcomers was a different but not a difficult experience. I don’t know what is next,” he says.
