It looks like the days of fun and games are over for Bollywood ’s resident Peter Pan Karan Johar. If sources are to be believed Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions is going through a financial low.
Says a source in the know, “It’s nothing really serious.But yes, there is financial crisis. This is why Karan is pulling out of uncertain projects like Shuddhi which Karan Malhotra was going to direct for him, and the super-hero film that Karan was going to produce with Ranbir Kapoor in the lead and Ayan Mukerjee as director.”
The source says that many of Karan Johar’s recent Dharma Productions have under-performed. “This is why, if you see, not too many new projects are being announced byDharma. A lot depends on the boxoffice performance of Karan’s own directorial ventureAe Dil Hai Mushkil which is scheduled for a year-end release,” says the source.
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil stars Ranbir Kapoor who badly needs a hit. Is he in a position to bail out Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions from the financial distress?
