karan Johar

Karan Johar currently in London , has  double reason to be nervous and anxious. His  first webseries The Fame  Game which  brings  Madhuri Dixit back   into the limelight, starts streaming  on Netflix  on the same Friday(25 February) as his  god-daughter Alia Bhatt’s litmus test in Gangubai Kathiawadi   releases in theatres.

During an informal chat from London, Karan  sounds like  an anxious mother whose  children  await  admission into  a  prestigious school.  “I don’t know what I am more nervous  about. The Fame Game  or Gangubai.I haven’t seen  Gangubai as yet. But I know the magic Sanjay Bhansali is capable  of creating  with Alia.  The girl is  blessed. I am so proud of her.I have been  waiting for the two of them to work together.”

As for  The Fame Game  it give us one more  super-talent,  writer Sri Rao,   from Dharma Production.

Says  Karan enthusiastically, “Sri is a  US based  writer. He is amazing. How did I find him?  I just did. I guess keep my eyes and mind open. But I take no credit for the talent that comes  out of Dharma. These directors writers actors and  technicians all have it in them. Varna main kis kaam  ka(otherwise  what am I worth?).”

Maduri Dixit,he reveals,  was  always  the  first choice  for The Fame  Game. “We  needed  a superstar  to play a  superstar.”

Overt  modesty apart, Karan hopes Gangubai Kathiawadi  would be  a smash hit.And not only for his darling  moohboli beti Alia. “The industry needs  success. We  are  struggling desperately post the pandemic.”
