Whenever there is a debate between a director and his actor, producer Karan Johar always prefers taking the former’s side, as to him, no actor can know the film better than the director.
“I’ll always take the director’s side. A film is a director’s medium. No actor can know the film better than the director. My energies are of course employed to sort out the situation. But I will always be there for the director. I’m a director myself. I believe the director knows best,” he told Filmfare during an interview.
This came after he spoke about the news was doing the rounds that Rishi Kapoor and director Shakun Batra were not on the same page during the shoot of ‘Kapoor and Sons.’
“Rishiji and Shakun definitely went through some ups and downs. It never got ugly though, it never got bitter, it was a relationship of mutual debate and different perspectives. But they found their own ground. It was all for the betterment of the film. Eventually, they found a relationship. Today they’re very fond of each other,” he explained.
