On his 50th birthday, Karan Johar has made a special announcement on his Instagram handle. The ace filmmaker, who is known for his romantic films, is soon going to direct an action movie. Karan in his post revealed that he will kick-start the shooting of his action film next year in April, after the release of Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani. In the post, he talked about his 27-long film career and how blessed he is to watch the finest artists perform in front of his eyes. He also expressed his love for filmmaking and said that earlier he used to take long gaps before directing his next film. However, today, he announced his next film even before the release of his upcoming film Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.
The note also added that when people turn 50, people call it a mid-life crisis, but he is proud to say that he is living the life without any apologies.
The post read, “Hello all, This is a note of reflection and one of immense excitement! I turn 50 today (a number that seemed like a distant nightmare), while I know it’s kind of a mid-point of my life but I can’t help my wannabe millennial self from existing. Some call it a mid-life crisis, I proudly call it just ‘living life without any apologies’. I have worked in the movie industry for over 27 years and I’m blessed to have had the best experience ever!!! Telling stories, creating content, nurturing talent and watching the finest artists perform in front of my privileged eyes… these years are like being in a massive dream that made all the sleeplessness seem worthwhile! I am grateful for the brickbats, the bouquets, the praising souls, the public trolls…ALL OF IT!!! It’s all been a huge part of my learning curve and self growth….”
The post added, “The one aspect that I believe I am most passionate about is being a filmmaker! In the past I have always taken long gaps between my films but today on this special day I would like to announce my next directorial feature…Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani will release on the 10th of February 2023. And I will commence the shoot of my ACTION FILM in APRIL 2023. Need your blessings and love! And I have to shamelessly sign off by saying JugJugg Jeeyo to all of you….My love forever, KARAN JOHAR.”
