Karan Johar started his career as an actor in Dil Wale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge. Since acting wasn’t his cup of tea, he shifted to directing and also became a designer. Karan has produced many films, but has directed only 5 and all of the have been blockbusters. Let’s take a look at Karan Johar’s best flicks!
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
Karan’s first film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai starred SRK, Kajol and Rani. The film was a love triangle between a tomboy, a pretty girl and an insensitive boy, the movie is one of the biggest hits till date and bagged awards for all the categories that year.
Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham
Looks like Karan was obsessed with Shahrukh after Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, as he asked Shahrukh to star in every film he directed. But well, that worked wonders for Karan. This family drama once again proved Karan’s mantle as a director as it went on to bag all the awards including best director that year.
Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna
Another attempt to create a successful family drama, but this time the film backfired even though it had SRK in the lead. Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna opened to a lukewarm response at the Box Office and indicated that maybe Karan should try something different next time around.
My Name Is Khan
Firstly, with My Name Is Khan, Karan broke away from his typical style of filmmaking, lavish sets, filmy songs and designer clothes. Secondly, he reunited Kajol and Shahrukh Khan after 8 years making their loyal fans even more eager to watch the film. All of this this resulted in My Name Is Khan becoming the biggest hit in 2009.
Student Of The Year
Even though there’s no SRK in Student Of The Year, Karan manages to nail it. The designer clothes, the lavish sets the filmy songs everything you could think of when you’re thinking about a Karan Johar movie was tossed in there just making it a delight for the viewer.
