Karan Johar is hailing all praise towards ‘Gadar 2’, congratulating on its success on single screens. He explains that all the silver screens were facing losses due to lack of audience and rise of OTT Platforms but films like ‘Gadar 2’ have brought back the masses to the theatres.
He says, “Gadar has blown everyone’s brains away because it was a film that was hugely successful in 2001, and now in 2023, it is breaking every record. I have been so glad for the single screens."
Johar also came into defence of Bollywood when everyone was commenting how south Indian movies were taking up over Bollywood.
He commented, “I never thought there was any problem with what Bollywood was doing. We have had bad years in the past, and we were having another one or two bad years. It doesn’t mean, ‘Boycott Bollywood’, ‘They are dead’, or The South is taking over’. The South is great. What they are doing is amazing."
He also added, “I was the first one who went with all reverence in my heart to Rajamouli sir and wanted to present ‘Baahubali’. I am obsessed with them. Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam—the four kinds of cinema—have catered to different kinds of audiences and have done it with super conviction. So, I have a lot of respect for them. But I also have a lot of respect for the storytellers we have in our Hindi cinema."
‘Gadar 2’ has created an uproar in Indian Cinema and has collected over 370 crores in two weeks and will soon touch the 400-crore mark. The Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel starrer is expected to be one of the highest grossing films in India alongside ‘Baahubali’ and ‘Pathaan.’
