While Bollywood movies have flopped at the box office last year, exceptionally South Indian movies have broken records in terms of collections there as well. RRR, KGF-2, Karthikeya-2, Kantara movies in Hindi also Rs. Crores have been collected. On the other hand, at least one of the Bollywood films in the South failed to earn any significant revenue. So this year Bollywood’s hopes are all on Shahrukh Khan starrer ‘Pathan’. While this movie is going to hit the theaters on January 25, the ‘Bollywood Boycott’ saga is hitting this movie.
Karan Johar said about Bollywood heroes, “Some heroes in Bollywood cannot collect at least Rs. 5 crore on the first day. But they are asking for a remuneration of Rs.20 crores. Most of the film’s budget is going to star heroes. Will they murder me for saying this?” he laughed. At the same time, Karan Johar said that the heroes of Telugu films, their business is very good.. their films are getting profits.
Karan Johar mentioned the movie ‘Student of the Year’ in 2012 as an example. Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Siddharth Malhotra were introduced with that movie. Even if the movie got a hit, but the profits did not come. He revealed that he suffered losses as the investment did not come.
