I have tasted blood; now don’t know what’s next: Karan Johar

The beginning of the year saw the biggest opening ever. Karan Johar’s ‘Agneepath’ has set a new record on its opening day and promises to pick up in the weekend like never before. The team of Agneepath gathered on the set of Yash Raj to celebrate the success with the media. Unlike, Karan Johar’s other love stories, ‘Agneepath’ seemed to have more brawl and violence in it. Karan Johar said, “The dongries and mandwa is a bit new to Dharma productions. The other action sequence I ever had in my film was Hrithik being slapped by Amith uncle. That’s the only action sequence I had in my 15 year career. I have tasted blood; now I don’t know what’s next.” The original ‘Agneepath’ which didn’t click at the box office wasn’t a safe bet to play for. Karan Johar told the reporters, “It’s my own revenge-a son avenging his father’s flop. It’s strange thing that in perception ‘Agneepath’ is not a flop. There are few films like ‘Lamhe’ and ‘Agneepath’ that the world doesn’t acknowledge as a failure. The youth loved it virally on videos and on DVDs.” He added, “The film is a tribute to my father. It’s a special film for us; it was not an easy task. To make a cult classic comes with a lot of expectations and baggage. I think Karan Malhotra has made this film with his conviction and he is the reason why all of us are here today.” Besides, the success, the press conference also introduced debutant director Karan Malhotra who was kept away from the media all this while. Among other stars it was Rishi Kapoor`s performance which was praised by one and all. However, Rishi Kapoor was sceptical before doing ‘Agneepath’. Rishi Kapoor said, “If I get any credit for this film then that belongs to Karan Johar and Karan Malhotra because their confidence in me convinced me to do the role. The credit goes to them. They choose me for this film.”
