Arguably, Karan Johar has had the biggest part in Shah Rukh Khan’s career and, more specifically, for his success in the romance genre. So it comes as no surprise that Johar has recently gone on record to say that he believes there is no other romantic hero quite like Khan.
As per the Times of India, KJo stated, “I think no one can beat Shah Rukh in romance, he owns that space. If and when I am challenged to write a love story which I feel I can justify, I will definitely make it. Right now, I don’t know if there is enough of me to make another love story”. With films such as ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ (1998), ‘Kal Ho Naa Ho’ (2003) and ‘Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna’ (2006) to the duo’s name, it is little wonder that Khan is known more for his romance than for any other genre he has been a part of.
Johar commented about his hopes to make another love story with his favourite Khan, “There are so many love stories that are being made… I feel I should have something unusual about the love story for me to tell through the film. And working with Shah Rukh is always great. I hope and pray that I should come up with films that would justify his tremendous star presence”.
KJo also express his excitement about the forthcoming ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ which is Yash Chopra’s return as director after a gap of eight years.
