Filmmaker Vikramaditya Motwane’s web series Jubilee is receiving accolades and appreciation from all corners. Each actor is getting the much-needed spotlight but the breakout star has been Sidhant Gupta who has moved from television to the movies over the past few years. His portrayal of Jay Khanna has been one of the biggest talk points on social media. Joining the bandwagon is filmmaker Karan Johar who succumbed to the magic of Jubilee.Karan Johar heaps praise on Jubilee breakout star Sidhant Gupta as he reviews Vikramaditya Motwane-directed series: ‘An ACTOR is here to stay and conquer’
Sharing the poster of the series on his Instagram on Sunday, Karan Johar wrote, “A slow burning, immersive, referential tale about the post independence origin and advancement of Hindi cinema…. This set piece of brilliant set pieces and performances is exquisite and twisted in equal measure… grey rules the character graphs and the unsaid is so much more powerful than the expressed dialogue…. @motwayne is an auteur … he sets up the studio world of the 40s and 50s with such clever finesse…. It took a beat to plunge into his world and when I did … I succumbed to his magic and his technical crew of magicians.”
Karan Johar also praised the cast of Jubilee especially Sidharth Gupta. The filmmaker wrote, “BUT it is in @sidhant that you find the essence, heartbeat and the soul of #jubilee…. His act that oscillates between studied awkwardness and heart wrenching intensity is the piece de resistance of this spectacular show! An ACTOR is here to stay and conquer!!!!! Congratulations Vik!!! And and my love and kudos to the entire team of the show.”

Whatever little I've known you, you always gave away gratitude that you lead with and preserve and I feel it in abundance as I write this.
