Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt starrer 'Gully Boy' is creating huge waves across the country for breaking the cinematic boundaries. Just like everyone, Karan Johar also couldn't hold back his feelings and wrote on Twitter: "I wish twitter had more than 280 characters for all the brilliant characters of #gullyboy so had to take to Instagram to share my thoughts on this incredible film and my favourite film this decade! Zoya Akhtar is my favourite filmmaker!"
And what happened next? A troll said: "Nepotism ki mulle" and KJo replied: "Chup kar aur picture dekh!!!!!"
But unfortunately, trolls continued to poke him over this and commented: "Sach kaha to Bura lag Gaya...truth bitter hota hai"
Coming back to 'Gully Boy', Karan Johar wrote a long post on Instagram and called 'Gully Boy' a masterpiece of modern times.
He wrote: "When passion supersedes grass root realities...when dreams make you wake up to bigger dreams....when you wrap rap into a form of solid expression....when you tell a story that has all this and more....that’s when you have a film that you can assuredly call a MASTERPIECE of modern times! My dearest Zoya......you are my favourite filmmaker and I feel so proud that I can witness your genius unravel at close quarters!! Well done team #gullyboy the entire technical crew needs a standing ovation!!!! What a film!!!!!!"
For those unaware, 'Gully Boy' is minting money at the box office. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted saying that film might just cross the lifetime earnings of director Zoya Akhtar’s last film, Dil Dhadakne Do. He wrote: “#GullyBoy benchmarks... Crossed Rs 50 cr: Day 3 Rs 75 cr: Will cross on Day 5 [Mon] Will cross *lifetime biz* of Zoya Akhtar’s #DilDhadakneDo [Rs 76.88 cr] on Day 5 and #ZindagiNaMilegiDobara [Rs 90.27 cr; Zoya’s highest grossing film] in Week 1 itself. India biz.”
On the professional front, Karan Johar will be producing quite a few films this year. Right from Akshay Kumar starrer 'Kesari', multi starrer 'Kalank', Tiger Shroff starrer 'Student of the Year 2', Sushant Singh Rajput-Jacqueline Fernandez's 'Drive and Ranbir Kapoor-Alia Bhatt's mega film 'Brahmastra'.
