In one of the recent articles sometimes happy some times sadon the 20th anniversary of Bollywood HungamaIn this article, we informed the readers how Karan Johar was worried during the release of the film that his film was a big flop. However, their fears were put to rest on Eid on Monday as audiences thronged to watch their family saga starring Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor Khan. The film did a record business of crores of rupees. 55.65 crores. Hence it was one of the biggest hits of Bollywood till date and continues to maintain that record.
But if you expected Karan to party hard to celebrate the success, it was not the case. Instead, in his autobiography ‘An Unsuitable Boy’, Karan Johar is quoted as saying, “sometimes happy some times sad remains my biggest hit, but for me, it was my most disappointing time.”
Karan Johar further wrote, “sometimes happy some times sad was as big a hit as Ghadri, it doubled its business Fine, But it was never respected at that time.”
To explain his point, he explained how it hardly won any awards. He revealed that old-fashioned actress Waheeda Rehman and Sadhna, who were his father Yash Johar’s Rakhi sisters, were on the Screen Awards jury and did not nominate Karan in the Best Director category. “My father took it to heart,” confessed Karan in his memoir.
Karan Johar decided to leave the country and move to London at the time of the Screen Awards. To add to his pain, Fine, which released a few months before his film, stole the thunder. When they landed in London, they were told that Fine Oscar has been selected and this has added to his pain. He said, “Fine Be the toast of the city. no one remembers today sometimes happy some times sad came out that same year. Now, it happens every week on television.”
Meanwhile, fans will tell him that they love the film and some even claim that they have seen it ten times. However, Karan instead focused on the fact that many critics despised the film and it did not win any award in the Best Director category.
He then mentioned in his book, “Everyone in the world knows”. sometimes happy some times sad As well known Bollywood film of this country. It has the biggest brand value in Germany, Ireland, France, etc. But that year, it broke me, and I’m still going through that year. In some ways it brought me down to earth.
