'Living life without any apologies': KJo announces to direct action film on his 50th b'day
Mumbai/IBNS: Filmmaker Karan Johar, who turned 50 on Wednesday, took the opportunity to make a special announcement on his Instagram profile stating that he will kick-start the shooting of his action film next year in April, after the release of Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.
In the post, he talked about his 27-long film career and how blessed he is to watch the finest artists perform in front of his eyes.
He also said that when one turns 50, people call it a mid-life crisis, but he is proud to say that he is "living his life without any apologies."
"Hello all, This is a note of reflection and one of immense excitement! I turn 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'," his post read.
The director, known for making romantic films, expressed his love for filmmaking and said that earlier he used to take long gaps before starting his next venture.
However, this time Johar announced his next film even before the release of his upcoming film Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.
"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 eyes... these years are like being in a massive dream that made all the sleeplessness seem worthwhile!
"I am grateful for the brickbats, the bouquets, the praising souls, the public trolls...ALL OF IT!!! It's all been a huge part of my learning curve and self growth...." 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 the 10th of February 2023. And I will commence the shoot of my ACTION FILM in APRIL 2023. Need your blessings and love! And I have to shamelessly sign off by saying JugJugg Jeeyo to all of you....My love forever, KARAN JOHAR," his post added.
Earlier in the day, he dropped a cryptic post hinting at a big announcement.
He tweeted, "A special day. A special note. A special announcement. Stay tuned!"
