The journey continues, madness remains the same: Karan Johar

Film-maker Karan Johar says that even a 100-crore grosser “may not always be a successful film” and that everything “depends on the budget”.

Karan Johar has just had a blockbuster with Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (ADHM), with which he has also entered the Rs 100-crore club. While the film-maker is, of course, happy with the fact that his film has been successful, he feels that “a Rs 100-crore film may not always be a successful film”.

He adds, “It [the success] depends on the budget [of the films] and so many other things. To me, the Rs 100-crore club is nothing, because the Rs 200-crore and Rs 300-crore clubs also exist.”

“Given the kind of film it is and the budget it had, I am happy to say that everyone attached to Ae Dil Hai Mushkil have made money,” says Karan Johar

At the same time, the Student of the Year (2012) director is content that ADHM has brought good news to everyone involved in the project. “Given the kind of film it is and the budget that it had, I am happy to say that everyone attached to it has made money, and audiences across the world have given it love. So, the film has been a successful experience for everyone — the actors, technicians and the music are on all the charts. In that respect, it’s an immensely successful pop-culture experience for everyone,” he says.

Although Karan is now hosting his TV show, he is also busy with several upcoming productions. “There are so many movies. While Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt’s film is out, we will have OK Jaanu in January, which is my collaboration with Mani Ratnam,” he says.
