Director and Producer Karan Johar OPENS UP about how Shah Rukh Khan motivated him! Here’s what he said!

In addition to being one of the top filmmakers in the nation, Karan Johar also owns one of the biggest production companies in the industry. The producer-director recently appeared on a podcast where he discussed the movie industry and how his business has developed.

KARAN JOHAR TALKS ABOUT HIS FRIEND APOORVA

On the fourth day following the passing of Yash Johar, a family friend gave Karan a letter from his father that contained all the information regarding the finances, including cash and bank account information. Karan claimed that prior to his father's death, he was completely ignorant of the finances. Even a list of persons he should and should not trust was included in the letter. That letter was used as a bible by Karan. Later, he called Apoorva Mehta, a boyhood buddy who had moved here from London and left his entire life behind. Due to the fact that Apoorva monitors all of his spending, even his personal costs, Karan admitted that he is extremely afraid of her.

IN THE PODCAST

In thi podcast, KJo disclosed that even though "Student Of The Year" made over 70 crore at the box office, he still lost roughly 15-20 crore because he spent a lot of money making the movie. Later, when they collaborated with the actors to create "Badrinath Ki Dulhania," "2 States," "Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania," and "Hasee Toh Phasee," the losses were made up. To make up for the loss of "Student Of The Year," the director struck a three-film deal with the actors who were already well-known.

KARAN AND SHAH RUKH KHAN ARE VERY CLOSE FRIENDS

In addition to being the most successful actor-director team, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and director Karan Johar are also close friends. They have produced a number of box office successes, but they are also renowned for leaving their fans speechless whenever they get together or discuss one another.

Among the actors who appeared in Kaal were Esha Deol, Vivek Oberoi, Lara Dutta, and John Abraham. Shah Rukh made a surprise cameo appearance in the film during the dance number Kaal Dhamaal. SRK also co-produced the movie alongside Karan.

SHAH RUKH KHAN ON THE WORK FRONT

Shah Rukh Khan is currently waiting for the premiere of his most anticipated movie Pathaan. It will premiere on January 25, 2023, in theatres. Later, he will appear in Dunki and Atlee's Jawan.
