‘You Are To Blame For Bollywood’s Loss Of KGF-Style Tonality’, Karan Johar To Aamir Khan

New Delhi: Karan Johar has done it again. Stirred up a controversy. In the recent episode of Koffee With Karan 7, he claims that actor Aamir Khan is responsible for losing the tonality in Hindi cinema that South cinema offers.

In conversation with Aamir, he said, “There’s been so much success that some of the South Industry films have offered us in terms of Baahubali, RRR, KGF, and Pushpa and some of our films that haven’t been working. Is there a shift that’s happened in our movies recently in terms of like there’s a tonality that KGF has or Pushpa has that actually Hindi cinema used to have. We actually let go of it and you’re responsible for it.”

Explaining the reason why he finds Aamir is responsible for all this, Karan said, ” In the year 2001 you came up with two films Dil Chahta Hai and Lagaan, both had new sensibilities, both had a new syntax in cinema then after that you came up with a film Rang De Basanti in 2006, then you made Taare Zameen Par right after that, with the result you started making a certain audience and filmmakers,” news agency ANI reported.

Aamir denied all the claims and said, “No you’re wrong. Those were all heartland films. Those movies had emotions. They reach the common man. It’s something that you will emotionally connect to. Rang De Basanti is a very emotional film. It touches the people at grassroots.”

Aamir further said, “I am not saying make action films or crude films. Make good films with great stories but choose topics that are relevant to most people. Every filmmaker has the freedom to make what they want. But when you are picking something that the bulk of India is not really interested in… There are niche people who are interested, which most of us don’t realise. That’s what I feel is the difference.”
