Karan Johar opens up about the box office success of pan-Indian films!

As you already know Karan Johar is a busy man. The filmmaker recently launched the trailer of his Dharma Productions' latest offering Jug Jugg Jeeyo. This Raj Mehta directorial has Varun Dhawan, Kiara Advani, Anil Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor in the lead roles. At the trailer launch event, Karan Johar was asked about the success of pan-India films which we have witnessed this year.

Opening up about the impressive success of films like SS Rajamouli's RRR featuring Ram Charan and Jr NTR, Yash starrer KGF: Chapter 2 and Allu Arjun-led Pushpa: The Rise, Karan Johar said that these films have "raised the bar of Indian films" on a whole. 

He stated, “We can say with a lot of pride that we are a part of Indian cinema. We are proud of RRR, KGF and Pushpa which did phenomenal business. These films have raised the bar of Indian films, told us that our standards can be so massive and we can reach so far ahead.” 

Karan Johar is no stranger to supporting pan-India films, he had a role to play in bringing SS Rajamouli's Baahubali into the spotlight. The film changed the way titles from the South Indian film industry were received. 

The director also reacted to the chatter around the diminishing box office success of Hindi films. He said, “In Hindi cinema, Gangubai Kathiawadi did solid business, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 has opened fantastic. We hope that Jugg Jugg Jeeyo also becomes a part of that list.”

Jug Jugg Jeeyo is a family comedy that revolves around generations of a family dealing with the highs and lows of married life. The film arrives in cinemas on June 24. Karan Johar has been filming for his own directorial Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani starring Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh. He is also bringing back his popular celebrity talk show Koffee with Karan for a seventh season.  We are super excited.
