The Kalank and Student of the Year 2 made under Karan Johar’s production did not earn much at the box office. The Kalank was a multi-starrer. On the other hand, Ananya Pandey and Tara Sutaria debuted in the film industry with Student of the Year. Now Karan is thinking about stopping the franchise.
Karan Johar’s ‘Student of the Year 2′ met the same fate as ‘Kalank’. Both the films did not pull off the intended magic and entertain the audience. Karan Johar introduced two new faces Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria with ‘SOTY 2’ and got mixed reviews from the film critics and moviegoers, but was not that big at the box-office.
Says a source, “Both Karan’s films got the right response, but they were big budget films and could not earn as expected. That is why Karan is thinking about reducing the budget of his upcoming films. He is also thinking about stopping franchisees for Student of the Year, though he has not officially said anything above it.”
If reports are to be believed then the budget of his next two mega budget films, Brahmastra and Takht could also be reduced.
Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt were seen in important roles in Kalank. Tiger Shroff played the main role with Tara and Ananya in the Student of the Year 2.
