Karan Johar has directed five films — Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Kal Ho Na Ho, Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna and My Name Is Khan — and in all these films Shah Rukh Khan s the hero. And all the films are blockbusters.
The sixth directorial venture of Karan, Student of The Year (SOTY) has three new comers starring and no SRK. But, Karan’s favourite hero is involved with SOTY also — as a co-producer. His Red Chillies Entertainment and Karan’s Dharma Productions are producing the film.
Though Karan acknowledges Adtiya Chopra as his mentor, he says that Shah Rukh Khan as his teacher when it comes to life’s lessons.
“One of the most intelligent minds in the business is Shah Rukh Khan and I think one of the most emotionally intelligent men is Shah Rukh Khan and I have learned little life lessons from him,” Karan says.
