What Karan Johar said

Speaking at the Director’s Adda for Film Companion, Karan Johar opened up about making a love story for the current generation, when so much has evolved. Karan said that inside the framework of Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani are series of things he wanted to address. One of them being cancel culture.

Because now I have evolved, now I have understood.”

“Then you have someone like Sandeep Reddy Vanga telling you that why are you listening to anybody? Just do your own thing! I feel like you got to understand that with age comes evolution. Being a parent specifically, parent of twins, a boy and a girl… you understand how important gender politics are. You don’t want to make those mistakes. You don’t want to tell your children that you wear pink hoodie and you wear blue. Its okay for both of them to wear pink and blue. Also, you don’t tell the boy that don’t cry like a girl.”

Animal showcases a violent world set against the backdrop of a troubled relationship between Ranbir Kapoor’s Ranvijay Singh and his father Balbir Singh, played by Anil Kapoor. The film was given A certificate by the CBFC ahead of its December 1 release. The film has been doing very well at the box office.
