Karan Johar weighs in on the North v/s South Debate

With the continuing North vs. South argument, filmmaker Karan Johar has frequently spoken out about the Bollywood industry and how it is navigating its advancement. Karan mentioned Hindi in a recent interview with a news website.

He claimed that as filmmakers, they constantly follow the flow. Salim-Javed was such a unique voice in the 1970s. We developed a specific character, and the idea for that angsty, angry hero came from other films. Then, in the 1980s, a lot of remakes appeared, which is when the conviction was overturned. We then began remaking all of the Tamil and Telugu movies that were big at the time.

Karan also discussed how numerous tendencies emerged in Bollywood following the years-long popularity of a tentpole movie, “In the 90s, there was one love story that stormed the nation–Hum Aapke Hain Koun. Everyone, including myself, decided to jump on that bandwagon of love, and Shah Rukh Khan was created. But we let go of all our roots in the 70s”.
