Mumbai: Filmmaker Karan Johar, who has helmed some of Bollywood’s most romantic films since making his directorial debut with ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ in 1998, says that the increased use of technology in daily lives is taking romance away from people.
“Technology definitely killed romance….how can Facetime and Skype ever replace waiting and longing for your loved one,” Karan tweeted.
Karan’s movies are all about love and loved ones. From ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’, ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ to ‘My Name Is Khan’ and ‘Student of the Year’ — love has been a recurring theme in all his directorials.
Karan Johar often informally referred to as KJo, is an Indian film director, producer, screenwriter, costume designer, actor and television personality who is primarily known for his work in Hindi films. He is the son of Hiroo Johar and the acclaimed producer Yash Johar.
Johar made his directorial debut with the blockbuster romance Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), which earned him the Filmfare Awards for Best Director and Best Screenplay. His next two films were the ensemble dramas Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham… (2001) and Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna(2006), which were both very successful in the overseas market.
His counter-terrorism drama My Name Is Khan (2010) earned him his second Filmfare Award for Best Director. These films, along with the several successful films he has produced under the Dharma Productions banner, have established him as one of the leading director-producers in Hindi cinema.
