Did Karan Johar Consult Boney Kapoor Before Selling Kargil Girl To Netflix?

Among the  young generation  of  actors  who are making a  mark in Bollywood, Sridevi’s elder  daughter  Janhvi Kapoor is definitely a frontranker.

  It therefore came as a  surprise to know   that  Karan  Johar  has decided to release  Janhvi’s second  feature film(not counting the  segment  of Ghost Stories  on Netflix last year)  on the OTT platform.

 Though  no one is speaking  out against the  decision—Karan  Johar is, after all, the  producer of  the film and can do anything he wishes to with it—there are  murmurs  of dissent within  the  film’s core crew iteslf .

A cast member   wondered  if selling a  film from a production house as  big as Dharma  Productions to the  OTT platform made sense.

“Would  Karan  Johar release Brahmastra on  the digital platform? No?  Because  there are big superstars  Amitabh  Bachchan and Ranbir Kapoor in the  cast? Then why this  treatment  to Gunjan Saxena Kargil Girl  ? Because it’s a smaller film?  Because it stars a female  hero in the main role? Unfortunately in India when you release a film on OTT  it means  it’s a relatively small film.”

Apparently  Janhvi’s father  is  not happy with the decision to release  his daughter’s  film on OTT. He remained unavailable for comment.
