Veteran Filmmaker Karan Johar makes two big announcements on his 50th Birthday, which is today. His next directorial venture Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani gets a release date, and the filmmaker will be venturing out in action genre, next year.
Known for making family oriented romantic drama with high dose of music and grandeur in his films, Karan Johar is venturing into action genre, he will start shooting for it post the release of his current film, Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahaani.
Karan Johar shared a note on his social media, it read, “This is a note of reflection and one of immense excitement! I turn 50 today (a number that seemed like a distant nightmare), while I know it’s kind of mid-point of my life, but I can’t help my wannabe millennial self from existing. Some call it a mid-life crisis, I proudly call it just living life with any apologies.
“I have worked in the movie industry for over 27 years, and I’m blessed to have had the best experience ever! Telling stories, creating content, nurturing talent, and watching the finest artists perform in front of my privileged eyes…these years are like being a massive dream that made all the sleeplessness seem worthwhile! I am grateful for the brickbats, the bouquets, the praising souls, the public trolls…All of it!!! It’s all been a huge part of learning curve and self-growth”
The one aspect that I believe I am most passionate about is being a filmmaker! In the past I have always taken long gaps between my films but today on this special day I would like to announce my next directorial feature…Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani will release on the 10th February 2023, and I will commence the shoot of my action film in April 2023. Need your blessings and love! And I have to shamelessly sign off by saying JugJugg Jeeyo to all of you…My love forever Karan Johar” read the full note.
Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani stars Alia Bhatt, Ranveer Singh, Dharmendra, Shabana Azmi and Jaya Bachchan in the lead role.
