Karan Johar opens up on why films like Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham are ‘hard to afford’ these days

Bollywood fans have Karan Johar to thank for giving them classics such as Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998) and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001). The films, which marked Karan’s first and second directorials respectively, remain one of the most loved Bollywood works of all time. But the filmmaker feels that helming such a film as Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, also called K3G, is a difficult task in the present day scenario.

According to a report in Pinkvilla, Karan opened up about why he thought a film like K3G would be a hard movie to helm for filmmakers these days, while speaking at the My Movie Life live show. “No one can afford a movie like 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham' today”, said the filmmaker.

Karan went on to explain the reason he thought so, speaking of how expensive it was to get even one actor for a film, let alone six of them. The filmmaker said that it was an unfortunate thing, as seeing multiple big stars in a film would be quite a treat for audiences. Admitting that it was a difficult task in a strictly economic sense, Karan talked about how multi-starrers would definitely be appreciated by audiences, as they would be getting a chance to see multiple stars on screen for the price of one. The filmmaker added that he hoped it would soon happen on screens again.

K3G starred Shah Rukh Khan, Jaya Bachchan, Amitabh Bachchan, Kajol, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Hrithik Roshan, among others, in prominent roles. The film is available to stream on Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.

Meanwhile, Karan is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, which marks his first feature length directorial after a gap of almost six years. The film stars Ranveer Singh,Alia Bhatt, Jaya Bachchan, Dharmendra and Shabana Azmi.
