Yodha Ahmedabad press conference: Karan Johar opens up on Bollywood vs South cinema debate: “We presented Baahubali; no action film is better than Sholay”; also says “Shaitaan ka trailer kamaal hai”

en Bollywood News Yodha Ahmedabad press conference: Karan Johar opens up on Bollywood vs South cinema debate: “We presented Baahubali; no action film is better than Sholay”; also says “Shaitaan ka trailer kamaal hai”

The team of Yodha, comprising of actors Sidharth Malhotra, Disha Patani and Raashii Khanna, director duo Sagar Ambre and Pushkar Ojha, producers Karan Johar, Apoorva Mehta, Shashank Khaitan and Manish Menghani and distributor Anil Thadani launched the trailer of the film at a multiplex in Ahmedabad. Karan Johar had a sore throat and yet made a solid statement when asked if he was inspired by South filmmakers while making Yodha.

Karan Johar said, “South ka daur bahut chal raha hai aur woh pehli South Indian film (that boosted the Pan-India wave) was Baahubali and it was presented by us. I can’t take credit for the film. It was S S Rajamouli’s genius and he’s a legend. Lekin aapne Sholay (1975) toh dekhi hogi na? Sholay Hindi film hai, sir! Even today, when you talk of action, toh Sholay se better koi film nahin bani! Hindi cinema ka garv hai Sholay. Hindi cinema ki mohabbat hai Sholay.”


He added, “Yes, we’d like to credit other industries. We filmmakers respect everyone. Lekin humein apne aap ko bhi thoda credit de dena chahiye ki Sholay stambh hai jis par hum sab khade hai.”

He was then asked if he’d like to make a Gujarati film. Karan Johar answered by talking about an upcoming Ajay Devgn film, “An upcoming Hindi film is a remake of a hit Gujarati film. That film is Shaitaan and uska trailer kamaal hai. I can’t wait to see the film. Gujarati cinema has contributed immensely. Our CEO, Apoorva Mehta, is a proud Gujarati. One of Yodha’s director is also a Gujarati. Hence, we’d like to make films in all languages, including Gujarati.”
