Mumbai: Karan Johar has reached to the peaks of success all over again with his previous movie ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ which entered the 100-crore club with a bang at the box office. However, the filmmaker had started his career in filmmaking by his first movie ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ in 1998 which included Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol.
While talking in an interview, KJo was asked a question regarding his happiness with ADHM’s performance to which he answered “I am very happy and exceptionally content because this is the film I set out to make. It has never happened to me, where I have made a film and not had certain regrets that are like, ‘I wish I had done a few things in a particular manner’ or ‘I wish I had shot something in a particular way’. But with ADHM, I have no regrets. To me, it’s the most satisfying piece of work [I have done]. It was an internal experience for me, as I felt that many moments from the film were pieces of my life. I was happy to share that emotion on the screen.”
Another question which was asked about how it feels when your first film entered in the 100-cr club, to which Karan further went on to say that: “Yes, since the coinage of the term, technically, it’s my first Rs 100-crore film, and I’m officially a member of the Rs 100-crore club now. But what’s of paramount importance is the worldwide acceptance of the film, and that different audiences have loved it. Even if a few reactions were polarised, a certain amount of thought went into it. ADHM is a film that has a very unusual take and interpretation on love, friendship and sensuality. I am glad, given the circumstances the film went through, that we still had a smooth and successful release.”
Well, after the success of ‘ADHM’ we can only hope that his upcoming projects do better than this. As always Karan is known for doing things out of the box. So, let’s see what will be coming next!
