The unsuitable boy of Bollywood, the godfather of many A-list actors, Mr. Karan Johar is steadily gripping the entire tinsel town. Love him or hate him, but the man’s presence can no way be ignored. More people talk about his sexuality, more he gets determined to achieve. Carrying forward the legacy of Dharma Production, Karan has indeed made it reach at an altogether new high. All these claims are not mere stories; neither here is anyone a crazy fan of him. Rather, the facts presented below clearly prove that Dharma production today is what Yash Raj used to be a few years back. To be specific, the year 2018 is going to make him the biggest filmmaker in Bollywood .
A comparative dig between Yash Raj and Dharma Production:
When it comes about the biggest names in film making, Yash Raj indeed comes on top. But, time has arrived to declare that Dharma Production is the new Yash Raj films. The comparative analysis presented below can clearly make this claim evident.
Year 2017 for Yash Raj:
3 films released by Yash Raj in the year 2017 are- Qaidi Band, Meri Pyaari Bindu, and Tiger Zinda Hai. It’s only Tiger Zinda Hai that saved the year for Yash Raj; otherwise it would have been one of the nightmare years for the leading production house.
Year 2017 for Dharma Production:
Dharma Production too released 3 movies in the year 2017. OK Jaanu, Ittefaq, and Badrinath Ki Dulhania. If compared, both the houses score equal in the year as Badrinath saved the game for Dharma Production, in fact is more profitable in comparison with Tiger Zinda Hai, considering the budget, distribution cost, and off-day release. But, what made Karan stay ahead is, his association with the record-breaking Baahubali. Just like Baahubali 1, Baahubali 2 was also distributed by Karan Johar in Hindi. Needless is to say how massive hit was Baahubali 2.
So, those were the analysis for the year 2017. Taking a dig at the year 2018, it can be clearly evident why Dharma production and Karan Johar are going to be envious for many.
Year 2018 for Yash Raj:
Yash Raj going to release 4 films in 2018, those are- Hichki, Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, Sui Dhaaga, and Thugs of Hindostand. Among all these, not much expectation is there except Thugs of Hindostan.
Year 2018 for Dharma Production:
There are 6 Dharma Production movies going to hit the silver screen this year, and almost each one is quite buzzed. Raazi starring Alia Bhatt is perhaps the comparatively less hyped movie among all these, which clearly tells about how big are the other movies. So, the other 5 movies are Dragon (Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan), Student of the Year 2 (perhaps the most awaited among youth), Dhadak (debut film of Jhanvi Kapoor), and the list two are simply huge- Simmba and Saaho.
Simmba is a massive collaboration between the most successful commercial director Rohit Shetty and Karan Johar. The movie is up for December 28th release.
Coming to Saaho, it needs no introduction. Baahubali star Prabhas opposite Shradhdha Kapoor in Saaho is already a hit simply for that short teaser released, showcasing the highest standard of technicalities in film making.
