BY A STAFF REPORTER: Filmmaker Karan Johar, who was present at the opening ceremony of the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) in Goa, spoke about how cinema, stories, characters and politics have evolved over time.
Karan Johar said, "I have been here for the last 25 years and I am happy that an evolution has taken place. I think it was like a journey from 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai' to 'Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani'. From a love story in 1998 to another in 2023. The characters have evolved, the journey has evolved, politics has evolved, communication about family, love and gender equality has evolved, I hope so and I am glad that the film has received so much love. "
'Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani' was released on July 28, 2023. The film emerged as a box office hit. It has crossed the Rs 150 crore mark in India.
