- I think the Khans have had a legacy of great cinema: Karan Johar
- KJo says it's easy to become an actor but maintaining it is tough
- Karan Johar will co-judge a reality talent show
The director said with the increasing popularity of the digital media audiences have access to various avenues of entertainment, which has made it challenging for upcoming actors to achieve the kind of stardom the Khans enjoy.
"I think the Khans have had a legacy of great cinema and longevity. All of them have been around for three decades and they have build an equity of audience who only watched films. It is a big challenge for the younger actors to live up to the audience base that has been created by these three megastars. Hats off to Shah Rukh, Aamir, Salman, Akshay and Ajay Devgn for being relevant even after working for three decades," he said.
Karan Johar will next be seen on small screen judging India's Next Superstars. The reality TV show will provide an opportunity to aspiring actors with no connections in the film industry.
Filmmaker Rohit Shetty is also part of the judging panel. Karan Johar said he has great regard and respect for the Golmaal Again director. "Our combination is great as we come from different brands of cinema. But the one thing common between us is the love and passion for our work and the film industry," he added.
