Indian filmmaker Karan Johar has not only given many hit movies, like ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’, ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’, ‘My Name Is Khan’ but has also launched several star-kids and newcomers, including, Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra, Ananya Panday, Janhvi Kapoor.

Although he gives chances to newer generation actors, he is currently ‘fed up’ with their constant demand for an increase in their fees.

While speaking to the Film Companion, Karan expressed the same and said he understand strike dealing with megastars and A-lister actors who bring in the business but he is confused with the demands of the younger generations. The filmmaker also mentioned that he is even more annoyed because these fee hikes took place during the pandemic as well, where the actors gave excuses of their previous films not working, or they haven’t had a release.

Karan was quoted saying, “There is a younger order that is yet to prove their muscle at the box office. They’re asking for Rs 20 or 30 crores. For no reason. Then you want to show a report card to them and say, that hello, this is what your film opened to.”

He added, “I would rather pay top dollar to members of the technical crew, who actually make the film special.” He wonders why he pays some actors 15 crores, and an editor Rs 55 lakhs.”

Meanwhile, Karan Johar has announced his return to direction after a gap of five years with ‘Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kaha’ which stars Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh in the lead roles. His last directorial was ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ starring Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai.
