‘Stardom will end with Shah Rukh Khan’: Karan Johar

Update : 16 Jun 2022, 00:39

Friendship between film industry is rare but no one can deny the bond between bollywood film director Karan Johar and Superstar Shah Rukh Khan.

Karan Johar recently stated his view on the future of Bollywood. Explaining the meaning of stardom, Karan Johar told Anupama Chopra on Film Companion, “The magnetism, the mystery, mystique, aura, I don’t think this generation has it. They are wonderful artists, but do they have the magic and mystery that I grew up in?” He further added, “Shah Rukh was the only one who didn’t walk the red carpet, he came from the other side. But when he walked in and he was at the party, I could see whether it was a younger movie star like Ananya Panday or his peers. Everybody felt the aura. That Is Stardom.”

“I don’t think there is going to be that kind of stardom ever again in today’s actors. It just doesn’t exist,” added Karan.

Karan also talked about his birthday party, which was attended by stars such as Salman Khan and Aamir Khan. However, several of the guests also turned positive for COVID-19 after the event. The director said that he feels “marginally victimised” for his birthday party being called a super spreader in several reports. “We don’t know who contracted it and when because there was a lot happening that week, even in the movie industry,” he said.

On the professional front, Karan Johar is working on his next film Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani starring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in lead roles. While Shah Rukh Khan will be next seen in Pathaan alongside Deepika Padukone.
