Karan Johar announces his first action film as a director

Popular filmmaker Karan Johar celebrated his 50th birthday on Wednesday and on the ocassion, he treated fans by announcing his first action film as a director. Karan is best known for backing and directing romantic and family dramas which run high on sentiments so it will be interesting to see how he approaches a vastly different genre.

In the birthday note that he shared on Instagram, Karan shared how he felt about entering his 50s. He wrote, "I turned 50 today (a number that seemed like a distant nightmare), while I know it’s kind of a mid-point of my life but I can’t help my wannabe millennial self from existing. Some call it a mid-life crisis, I proudly call it just ‘living life without any apologies’. I have worked in the movie industry for over 27 years and I’m blessed to have had the best experience ever!!! Telling stories, creating content, nurturing talent and watching the finest artists perform in front of my privileged eye…These years are like being in a massive dream that made all the sleeplessness seem worthwhile! I’m grateful for the brickbats, bouquets, the praising souls, the public trolls…All of it!!! It’s all been a huge part of my learning curve and self growth.”

Further in his statement, Karan went on to announce his yet untitled action flick. He wrote, "The one aspect that I believe I am most passionate about is being a filmmaker! In the past I have always taken long gaps between my films but today on this special day I would like to announce my next directorial feature…Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani will release on 10 February 2023 and I will commence the shoot of my action film in April 2023."

As of now, Karan is filming his upcoming directorial venture 'Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani' starring Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt.
