Karan Johar Calls Aamir Khan, 'Indian Cinema's Game Changer'

Director Karan Johar was recently quoted saying that actor-producer Aamir Khan is a game changer in Indian cinema, given his recent accomplishments.


At the screening of Strangers In The Night, a short film by his production company, Dharma Productions in collaboration with Chivas, Johar said, "I think Aamir Khan is a game changer. Many of his decisions have made him pioneer the movement of great and yet mainstream cinema. I think his endeavour starting from 2001 in Lagaan going to the urban Dil Chahta Hai to the path-breaking Rang De Basanti to his own directorial Taare Zameen Par, to every film he has made post that, he has always broken ground and done something different and yet catered to the mainstream. I think Aamir Khan is what you call the quintessential game changer of the film fraternity in India."


Aamir's last acting role was in the film Dhobi Ghat in 2011 and he also did an item number in his production Delhi Belly later that year. His next film, Talaash, directed by Reema Kagti and starring Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukerji, is set to release on November 30.
