Karan Johar was at the screening of his production Strangers In The Night, a short film, and talked about Indian cinema and Aamir Khan.
Filmmaker Karan Johar says actor-producer Aamir Khan is a game changer in Indian cinema, given his bouquet of unique, yet mainstream films.
“I think Aamir Khan is a game changer. Many of his decisions have made him pioneer the movement of great and yet mainstream cinema,” Karan said here Friday at the screening of Strangers In The Night, a short film by his Dharma Productions in collaboration with Chivas.
Elucidating his point, the 40-year-old said: “I think his endeavour starting from 2001 in Lagaan going to the urban Dil Chahta Hai to the pathbreaking Rang De Basanti to his own directorial Taare Zameen Par, to every film he has made post that, he has always broken ground and done something different and yet catered to the mainstream.”
“I think Aamir Khan is what you call the quintessential game changer of the film fraternity in India,” he added.
