Karan Johar seems to have made being successful look easy and being one of the industry’s top filmmakers he is showing no signs of stopping. However he has expressed how difficult it is to stay at the top and he commends the like of Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn for their own long-standing success within the industry.
“It is a big challenge for the younger actors to live up to the audience base that has been created by these three megastars. Hats off to Shah Rukh, Aamir, Salman, Akshay and Ajay Devgn for being relevant even after working for three decades,” DNA reports Johar explaining.
He went on to add, “I think the Khans have had a legacy of great cinema and longevity. All of them have been around for three decades and they have built an equity of audience who only watched films. ”
“They are just going on and on… and more respect to them. It is difficult to stay relevant. I will be completing 20 years in the industry in 2019. It is not easy (to stay here). Getting success is not that difficult if you do your job well but maintaining it is tough,” the film maker expressed.
Focusing his time on TV, Johar will soon be seen as a judge on the upcoming ‘India’s Next Superstars’ alongside Rohit Shetty. Talking about the show, Johar stated, “There are a lot of reality shows either about singing or dancing or talent-based but here we are looking for talent in the acting department. There is an academy where these 20 contestants will stay together. On weekdays, the contestants will be trained and on the weekends there will be a celebrity guest along with us who will give the participants a challenge.”
