Karan Johar started his career as an assistant director for Aditya Chopra’s Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. He became friends with Shah Rukh Khan, who later encouraged him to direct his first film, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. The movie became a sensational blockbuster and kick started Karan Johar’s career. He made India’s biggest budget film, Kabhi Kushi Kabhi Gham back in 2002 with SRK, Kajol, Hrithik Roshan, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Rani Mukherjee, Jaya Bachchan and Amitabh Bachchan. Both the films attained cult following and brand Karan Johar boomed all over India.
Kal Ho Naa Ho made him a successful producer and he took gaps between his films as a director to concentrate on production, writing and hosting. He became KJO after turning into a host. He is now 50 years old and directing Rocky aur Rani ki Prem Kahani.
He seems to have fed up with directing majorly love stories and family entertainers. He announced his action film and it will start from April, 2023.
