Shah Rukh Khan
No Record Found.
Karan Johar is one of the warmest people in the industry, after all who doesn’t love to be around this man. He is just the perfect blend of good and evil, and cuts throats with his slightest words. He is a filmmaker like no one else; he thinks like the audiences and approaches untouched subjects. While Karan has in all his films an edge of emotion, he has a very different way of dealing with it. And while we wish he keeps making films that one can watch with their families, here is a list of Karan’s directorial that dealt with emotions of our lives in just the perfect manner:
This is when Karan taught us ‘Pyaar Dosti Hai’, and all we noticed was the sizzling chemistry between Kajol and Shah Rukh Khan in the film. Rani Mukherji and Salman Khan in special roles added just the right amount of emotions of sacrifice and love even though their characters were short lived in the film. The film was Karan’s directorial debut, and was not only high on emotions but also set a trend for the collage goers back then. The film that became a cult back then is today known to be a cult classical of all time. The film was destined to do well in India, but it also did well overseas and became one of the top 10 films there.
Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham or K3G as the names depicts is about how we have the highs and the lows in our lives, and that we have been dealing with it beautifully. The film had an esemble cast with the biggest celebrities of Bollywood- Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Kajol, Hrithik, and Kareena were all main cast of the film. Shah Rukh and Kajol’s pairing by then was one of the most loved jodis in Bollywood, and Karan being their best friend would often cast them to create and then recreate the magic on screen. The film was promoted with a tagline, ‘It’s All About Loving Your Parents’, and rightfully so the film too revolved around a family that like any other family was not perfect, but eventually sorted out their differences. It spoke highly about a son’s relationship with his parents, and how special parents are in our lives.
With Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna Karan Johar dared to be different by bringing in newness to his script. The film yet again starred Shah Rukh opposite Rani Mukherji, and along with them also starred Abhishek Bachchan, Preity Zinta, Amitabh Bachchan in a special role, and Kirron Kher. The film dealt with extra marital affair and unhappy relationships, beautifully depicting that not all relationships are meant to be. The film spoke about unhappy couples who seek love outside their marriages, and how their lives take a turn when they eventually decide to separate. The film dates back to 2006, a time when such topics were not openly welcomed by the audiences, and still the script of the film was applauded as it depicted a subject which was untouched back then.
Karan and his friendship with Kajol and Shah Rukh by then became pretty evident as he starred them along yet again in My Name Is Khan. The film dealt with a sensitive topic of terrorism and of a man diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome. The film beautifully depicts the journey of a man diagnosed with Asperger’s and how he wants to live his life like just any person, it deals with him falling in love, and him going out and about to prove his love for his wife. Shah Rukh with his character was seen in a never before avatar, and his journey of reaching out to the President and to the people just to say that he is not a terrorist is extremely heart wrenching and at the same time an eye opener for the world to not typecast religions.
Friendship and love, just the way Karan taught us with his directorial debut Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. In Student Of The Year, Karan introduced to us the today’s finest actors- Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra. The film was again a coming of an age film which dealt with the young audiences, the college goers, and was all about friendship and love. This was his first ever film which didn’t star Shah Rukh, and for once Kajol had a special appearance in a song. The film was quite an interesting take on the lives of three friends who have shared love and hatred of equal amounts, and of a love triangle that breaks them apart only to come together after many years.
The film would have been mentioned in a passing as it was not completely directed by Karan, it was four stories put together and Karan had directed only one story in the film. The story that Karan directed was about a man who is married but is yet gay, and it beautifully portrayed the societal pressure that one gives in to only to one day realize that the life they are living is not their reality. It gave away a message that is etched in our minds, a message that for once made us think about how we as a society influence the choices of an individual. The short film also had few beautifully sung old songs that took us back to a time when Hindi cinema was different that what it is today.
Karan’s upcoming directorial stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Anushka Sharma, Ranbir Kapoor, and Fawad Khan in lead roles. Though nothing much is said about the film, but a revelation by Karan about the characters of Ranbir, Anushka, and Aishwarya quite makes this film a look forward to. Ranbir plays a Hindu boy, whereas Anushka portrays a role that of a Muslim girl. The trailer is not out yet, and so just by the jest of the film it looks like it is a love story of a different sort. Like we said, Karan Johar is at his best in depicting emotions through his films.
