Koffee With Karan 7: Karan Johar blames Aamir Khan for loss of tonality in Hindi cinema; here's why
Karan Johar, Aamir Khan

In a recent episode of Koffee with Karan 7, Karan Johar claims that star Aamir Khan is to blame for Hindi cinema's losing the tonality that South cinema gives.

The director could be heard adding that with Baahubali, then RRR, KGF, and Pushpa, as well as some of their less successful films, the South Indian cinema industry has given us a lot of success. KJo asked if there's a tone that KGF or Pushpa possesses that genuinely used to be there in Hindi cinema that has suddenly changed in our recent films. Adding to it, the filmmaker said that Aamir is accountable for it because he genuinely let go of it.

The reason Karan believes Aamir is to blame for everything is that he came up with two films in the year 2001, Dil Chahta Hai and Lagaan, which both had new sensibilities, both had a new syntax in cinema, and then he came up with a film after that, Rang De Basanti in 2006, and then he made Taare Zameen Par right after that, with the result that Aamir started making films for a certain audience and filmmakers.

All of the assertions were ridiculed by Aamir, who retorted that Karan was mistaken. All of those were heartland movies, and those films contained feelings. They got to the common man. While people have an emotional connection to it. The movie Rang De Basanti is incredibly moving and the majority of people are affected by it.

Aamir went on by saying that he was not advocating that one make crude or action movies. Make good movies with compelling tales, but pick subjects that are important to most people. Each and every filmmaker is allowed to produce whatever they desire. However, if they choose a topic that the majority of Indians are not really interested in, most of them are unaware that there is a niche group of people who are interested. That is the difference that he perceives.

In recent years, South Indian movies have performed remarkably well on a global scale. However, popular Bollywood movies like Akshay Kumar's Samrat Prithviraj, Ranbir Kapoor's Shamshera, and Ranveer Singh's Jayeshbhai Jordaar didn't succeed in drawing crowds to the theatres.
