Karan Johar's Student Of The Year is a successful franchise in films.

Among the many hits of Karan Johar, is the iconic Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. However, the filmmaker has just clarified that there will not be another installment of the film.
On the stage of Bigg Boss OTT, Karan said that the iconic Poo or the moments in the Raichand family are too iconic to be recreated. Thus, he refused to make a sequel of the uber-popular Bollywood film.
KJo told a guest, "Sometimes it is better if movies are left in one part only. If you cannot match the level in the second part then the iconic film also gets affected. So it's best to leave it as it is."
While KJo refused to turn K3G into a franchise, a few of his other movies are indeed a popular franchise. Student Of The Year, which gave Sidharth Shukla, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan their Bollywood launch, already has three installments with the fourth likely to be in the pre-production stage.
KJo's debut directorial film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, even though not exactly turned into a franchise, has an animated version named Koochie Koochie Hota Hai. Moreover, the filmmaker himself has shown interest in franchise films of late. He has backed Sooryavanshi, which is a part of Rohit Shetty's cop franchise.
After hosting Bigg Boss OTT, Karan Johar is likely to get back on his next directorial, Takht. Now that the COVID-19 ban has been lifted, the film is expected to go on floors soon.
Meanwhile, after Bigg Boss OTT grand finale with Karan on September 18, Salman Khan will take over Bigg Boss. He will be hosting Bigg Boss 15, which will not only stream on Voot but also air on Colors TV.
