Karan Johar Stares At The Biggest Flop Of His Career

The  maverick producer Karan Johar who has given the  film industry such historic  blockbusters as  Kuch Kuch Hota hai,Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham and Dostana is  now  looking at  the  biggest disaster  of his career.

Kalank, Karan Johar’s most costly production to date with an estimated budget of Rs 250 crores,  is all set  to  become  the  biggest  disaster of his career.

Though the  opening  has been  most impressive, critics and  audiences  have responded with  unmitigated negativity  describing  the  film as  an emptied-out soul-less version  of  Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s  cinema.

Sources from  leading  multiplex chains  say the coming days  when  Kalank was expected to reap rich harvests  over the Easter weekend, are likely to register a steep drop  in  the  collections.

One  source  from a  multiplex  calls  Kalank “another Thugs Of Hindostan  in the making.”

“Viewers  are walking  out  of  the  shows. The audience  has failed  to connect with  the  plot, characters and dialogues,” says Suman Sinha, a leading exhibitor  of Bihar.

The disaster  coming during  a  year that has already spawned  several major successes  including  the war blockbuster Uri, is a tragic  stumbling block to the  successful  innings this year at the boxoffice.

The  debacle  would affect the careers of  Aditya Roy Kapoor and  Sonakshi Sinha who were looking at  making a  comeback with  Kalank. The  flop  is unlikely  to  make  a  difference  to  Varun Dhawan or Alia Bhatt who are  on a winning streak.

As  for Karan Johar , sources say the   losses would be  absorbed  by  Karan’s Dharma Productions’ partners Fox-Star Studios.

Karan Johar  has sold Kalank to Fox-Star .So  he  stands  to lose nothing.  Fox  who are  on  a winning streak with the blockbusters  Baaghi 2, Sanju and  Total Dhamaal  could be looking at  heavy losses this time.
