Karan Johar’s ‘Glamorizing’ review

2022 was not a particularly good year for Bollywood as several big-ticket films flunked and the industry faced criticism from all corners, especially when South Films were doing well. Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan opened to a roaring response at the box office on its opening day, January 25, giving the Hindi Cinema a reason to delight. Karan Johar has now reviewed Pathaan and given a shout-out to the film and Bollywood in general.


On Wednesday Karan Johar hailed the team behind Pathaan and called the film the ‘biggest blockbuster’. His post on Instagram read: “I don’t remember when I last had such a fun time at the movies!!!! This one’s just the biggest blockbuster !!! Mega is the word!!! The charm, charisma , superstardom, desirability and sheer brilliance of @iamsrk … the hottest , beautiful and sensationally gorgeous agent you will ever find @deepikapadukone the sexiest and most desirable villain @thejohnabraham!!!
