Karan Johar is one of the most celebrated film-makers in the industry. He has made some of the most talked about films and has even given opportunities to many budding actors. His film ‘Dhadak’ was recently in news as he launched Janhvi Kapoor on the big screen. Karan lately talked about his journey in Bollywood and even discussed about the characteristics of a good actor.
When he was asked about his expectations from a good actor, he revealed, that for an actor to become a good performer, it is crucial to have a broken heart. Karan Johar has certainly put this condition for actors. However, we believe that not every single actor would agree with him.
While speaking at the launch of the second season of his radio show ‘Calling Karan’, the film-maker mentioned many important things about love and relationships.
“I think actors who have not had a heartbreak will not perform the way they are required. If you are a good actor then you must have had a heartbreak. It’s not possible otherwise for you to depict certain kind and amount of emotion on the celluloid. Sometimes your eyes too, depict your heart’s tale and many of them, whose eyes speak volumes, they have been through that journey in their life.”
Karan Johar is well known for romantic hits like ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’, ‘Kal Ho Na Ho’ and ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ amongst others. When asked if he ever give references to people, about his films, Karan explained:
“No…no…what we show in movies is ridiculous. You cannot possibly ruin people’s life by giving those kinds of situations. Those are meant for like PVRs (theatres) experience and when you give people legit advice, you have to get into the heart of the situation therefore, I take every call that has come on this show very seriously.”
On the first season of ‘Calling Karan’ issues related to marriages, LGBT, love, relationships and more were discussed.
The Season 2 of the radio show is also expected to cover some of these themes in an entirely new way.
