Karan Johar’s Note
“Prior to the release of this film, I felt that at any point of time, I would need an IV drip and was near collapse!! The question I asked myself was — is it the long 7 year gap? Or the anxiety built over the last 3 years. Or the fact that we live in an ambiguous box office time. Whatever the real reason is — I was a bonafide mess! But the Friday, 28th of July, I felt nothing but gratitude, validation and sheer joy. This film is truly a product of team energy & love.
- Karan first expressed his gratitude to the writing forces of the film
- Shashank Kahitan & Sumit Roy guided Karan through the narrative journey
- Ishita Moitra brought humor, introspection, and cinema drama to the screenplay
- The entire writing process was possible because of Somen Mishra’s creative governance and brilliance
Crew and Cast
Karan individually thanked the crew and cast of the film. He specifically addressed Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt, mentioning that they are the most indispensable part of the prem kahaani.
Closing the Note
Karan concluded the letter by thanking close friends, including what seems to be Gauri Khan.
Trade Expert’s Tweet
