Karan Johar may have left a mark on popular culture, but believes he is yet to make a notable contribution to Indian cinema. He wishes to direct films like Lagaan (2001), Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006) and Rang De Basanti (2006).
“I may have contributed to pop culture, but I don’t think I have contributed to the brilliance of cinema as yet. I’m yet to make a defining iconic film,” Johar said at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne 2017.
The filmmaker hosted a Masterclass on ‘How to direct a big Bollywood dream’ at the ongoing festival yesterday. Citing the example of the Baahubali franchise (2015 and 2017), he said, “We need to reinvent. Dependence on stars has to reduce. Content has to take over.”
The filmmaker said his 19-year-long career has been a terrible record. “I think I should have made many more movies. You start believing that you are so important that you can’t fail. Nobody is that important. Cinema is bigger than all of us.”
