Karan Johar “I Stand by Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra Unconditionally”




While the world wonders what fate has in store for  Ayan Mukerji’s  scifi-spiritual  fantasy Brahmastra when it finally opens  on  9 September,  its producer Karan  Johar stands firmly by the   director.

“Ayan has given  seven years of his life to  Brahmastra.  If he wanted, he  could have made  three or four films during that time.Instead he chose to focus on one project, his dream project. Ayan  has lived  breathed  slept  with Brahmastra. It is  unlike anything  we’ve seen in cinema. In terms of  budget vision and scale it is  the  biggest film I’ve made,” says Karan  Johar.

Karan   is  full of  protective  affection for  his  blue-eyed  director. “Ayan has not moved socially upwards at all. He  is driving the same car that he used to seven years ago. He hasn’t moved into an upscaled  home  either.He lives now  where he lived when he came to  become a  director. Yeh  Jawani Hai  Diwani which he  made for  my production house Dharma nine years ago was  a  huge hit. Ayan  didn’t  use that as a mean to make  money. Instead he dedicated his  life to  making Brahmastra. I know the people in the  industry are waiting to see what he has done. I know there are  a lot of doubts surrounding the film. But I am confident Brahmastra will be  a gamechanger.”
