“I am not competing with Salman Khan,” says Karan Johar on the sidelines of Lust Stories trailer launch here in Mumbai.
Four Indian filmmakers Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar and Dibakar Banerjee, have come together for the anthology “Lust Stories”, which will be out on Netflix next month on 15th June.
The Salman Khan starrer Race 3 is also releasing on 15th June and will clash with Anthology, Lust Stories. The filmmaker Karan Johar sets the record straight and denies all the rumors about “fight”, “Clash” or “Competing” with mainstream action mogul.
Karan said, “Of course not, Salman Khan is on a different platform, he is the big master of big mainstream cinema. Race 3 is going to be a humongous film, it is a franchise film, and it is totally a different film with a different syntax. We’re not competing or fighting, we’re out of the league to fight with Salman Khan”
“We’re just very happy four filmmakers, who made a tiny little film. And we are grateful to Netflix for accepting it. We are not competing with anyone; we don’t have the right to compete with the magnitude of Salman Khan. I would probably go and watch Race 3 on 15th, then Lust Stories”
Karan’s short film features Vicky Kaushal, Kiara Advani and Neha Dhupia in the lead roles.
