Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani : Karan Johar returns as director, begins shooting with Ranveer and Alia
Producer-director Karan Johar, who announced his next feature film on the 6th of last month, started shooting for the film on Thursday. As a director, Karan Johar has directed each and every story of Netflix's film films 'Lust Stories' and 'Ghost Stories' in the last few years. But the last feature film he directed was in 2016, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. After five years of this film, Karan Johar has now started shooting for his new film 'Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani'. With the commencement of the shooting, Karan Johar has also released the first look of his hero Ranveer Singh and heroine Alia Bhatt in the film.
Ranveer Singh is seen having fun as usual in the first glimpses of the film 'Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani' on Thursday. At the same time, Alia Bhatt is seen preparing for her special looks. In these glimpses, Ranveer Singh was seen rehearsing his scene somewhere and practicing dance steps. But, the moment where Alia Bhatt comes in front of the camera fully decked up for the first time to showcase her look is unmatched. Such an intoxicating form of Alia Bhatt has rarely been seen in films before. Alia, who is usually a bubbly girl, was seen giving a glimpse of a perfect woman in the film 'Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani'.
Earlier in July, before announcing his new film 'Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani', Karan Johar reminisced about the films that he directed. Karan tried to revive the nostalgia of his films with glimpses of films like 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai' and 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham'. And, following his father's established tradition of family films Dharma Productions, he is also seen in the film 'Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani'.
Apart from Karan Johar, Ranveer Singh, and Alia Bhatt, apart from Karan Johar's special fashion designer Manish Malhotra, are also seen in the first glimpses from the sets of the film 'Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani'. In these glimpses, the artisans are seen preparing the sets. Some people are seen selecting clothes for dressage. Karan Johar seems to be involved in laughter and sometimes he is involved in the rehearsals of scenes with his cast and technicians. Glimpses also show the places where the film's senior cast members Dharmendra, Shabana Azmi, and Jaya Bachchan are seen preparing to read the script.
Dharma Productions has been making films continuously for the last five years, although some of its mega-budget films were flops and some had to be released directly on OTT. As a producer, Karan Johar's film 'Brahmastra' has been in discussion for the last several years. His previous films 'Gunjan Saxena' and 'Sher Shah' were released directly on OTT. During this, all the troubles kept coming about one of his ambitious films 'Takht'. And, the buzz was that this film has been postponed indefinitely. In his film 'Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani' as a director, he has repeated the hit pairing of 'Gully Boy.
