In a career spanning over 20 years, Karan Johar has established himself as one of the most celebrated directors in Bollywood history. When it comes to love stories, Karan is arguably one of Bollywood’s most sought-after directors. His stories, though surreal at times, capture our hearts again and again.

Karan Johar

In an exclusive interview with Filmfare a few years ago, the ace filmmaker discussed the key ingredients to directing a romance. Below is an excerpt from the interview. “The most important thing is to get couple energy right. Awkwardness often appears on-screen when the main character couple become too infatuated with each other.My favorite is when two people who don’t know each other very well get together. It’s time.There’s a charm, but they don’t act on it.The sizzle that celluloid creates is amazing.For example Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, they’re an attractive couple.They. There was nothing but friendship and respect between them, their friendship was always up to a point and never beyond, which is why they are so hot on screen. is whether a couple can be seen together in the frame.Their physical features and body language play a big part.Singing and dialogue also play a big part in romance.If there is no love in the lines, then love is It becomes flat.To create a good love story, you have to be the lover yourself.If you do not have romance in yourself, you cannot project love.Love is mine. It’s a dream, even if I don’t have love in my life, cinema will be an alternative medium for me to express the love I have for someone because to me it’s so unrewarding. Every time I project it, it works.”
