Karan Johar On How Aamir Khan Is Responsible For Giving South Industry An Edge Over Hindi Cinema; Latter Responds

Kareena Kapoor Khan, who has teamed up with Aamir Khan for the third time on the silver screen in Advait Chandan’s ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’, recently appeared on her close friend Karan Johar’s popular talk show ‘Koffee with Karan’ with his co-star. While the fifth episode of the new season of ‘Koffee with Karan’ turned out to be a roller coaster ride for fans, what grabbed our attention was host KJo blaming Aamir for Hindi cinema ‘losing its tonality’.

Talking about the recent success of South movies at the box office, Johar said, “There’s been so much success that some of the South Industry films have offered us in terms of Baahubali, RRR, KGF, and Pushpa and some of our films that haven’t been working. Is there a shift that’s happened in our movies recently in terms of like there’s a tonality that KGF has or Pushpa has that actually Hindi cinema used to have? We actually, let go of it and you’re responsible for it,” while blaming Aamir.

Explaining his point, Johar continued, “In the year 2001 you came up with two films ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ and ‘Lagaan’, both had new sensibilities, both had a new syntax in cinema, then after that, you came up with a film ‘Rang De Basanti’ in 2006. Then you made ‘Taare Zameen Par’ right after that, with the result you started making a certain audience and filmmakers.”

Denying KJo’s accusations, Aamir called his movies ’emotional’ which touched the common people at the grass-root level. “Make good films with great stories but choose topics that are relevant to most people. Every filmmaker has the freedom to make what they want,” Aamir added. Furthermore, he continued, “But when you are picking something that the bulk of India is not really interested in. There are niche people who are interested, which most of us don’t realise. That’s what I feel is the difference.”

While the 57-year-old actor won over the internet with his response, fans have been busy talking about the latest episode of ‘Koffee with Karan’ on social media. Plus, the addition of Kareena just set the stage on fire.

Talking about Kareena-Aamir’s upcoming movie ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’, the Advait Chandan directorial is all set to release in theatres on August 11, 2022.
