Karan Johar’s Quickie Scheme To Reimburse Kalank Losses



 The  horror  franchise which  Karan  Johar has  kick-started  with a  bang  by announcing  Bhoot, is  a loss-compensating  strategy, meant to  minimize  the  financial setbacks suffered  by Johar and  his DharmaProductions by the  thundering  debacle of  Kalank.

Says a  source  close to Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, “The failure  of Kalank  was  horrific.The brainstorming tank at Dharma  Production  suggested  the  horror franchise entitled Bhoot.To be made under  a very tight budget this series  of films is expected  to  recover investments  within the  first three days  of release and then make   a small profit.”

This isn’t the first time when  a major  filmmaker has  found  a shortcut to  fortune after a disastrous failure. After  the resounding  failure of  his career’s best work Kaagaz Ke Phool , Guru Dutt quickly  recompensed  his own  company  by making the kitschy potboiler hit  Chaudhvin Ka  Chand. And after  weathering Waterloo with MeraNaam  Joker, Raj Kapoor  swiftly switched to the  breezy easy  teen romance  of Bobby which was  a  blockbuster
