KARAN JOHAR BLAMES AAMIR KHAN FOR THE TONALITY SHIFT IN BOLLYWOOD
Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan appeared on Koffee With Karan 7. The trio spoke about Laal Singh Chaddha, the South vs North debate, among other things.
On the show, Karan Johar asked why South films are succeeding at the box office and what Bollywood is missing. He also held Aamir Khan responsible for the shift in tonality.
Karan Johar asked Aamir, “You’ve always had an academic understanding of films. The South films have gained so much success, from Baahubali to Pushpa RRR and KGF. And some of our films haven’t been working. Is there a shift in our movies in terms of tonality that these South films offer?”
He went on to blame Aamir and said, “Hindi cinema used to have that, we let go of it and you’re responsible. In 2001, Dil Chahta Hai and Lagaan, both had new sensibilities, new syntax of cinema. Then, Rang De Basanti and Taare Zameen Par happened. You started making a certain audience.”
