“Ek aur critic!”
Filmmaker Karan Johar’s son Yash has branded his father’s directorial debut blockbuster film, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998) as “very boring”.
Karan is currently busy with his three-year-old twins Yash and Roohi who are self-isolating during the lockdown in India.
Yash and Roohi are not afraid to share their criticism of their father from his weight gain during quarantine to his fashion sense.
Karan regularly shares videos of his children on social media as proof of their criticism.
Recently, Karan shared a video of Yash’s reaction about watching the Bollywood classic, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998).
Taking to Twitter, Karan captioned the video, “Ek aur critic!”
In the video, Karan asks Yash who is busy playing, if he wants to watch Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998).
In response to his father’s question, Yash who seems disinterested says, “No, it’s very boring” and continues to play.
Karan, who is shocked by his son’s response says, “What? Why? He’s walked away like the critics.”

Undoubtedly, Karan’s fans certainly found the video hilariously entertaining.
One Twitter user suggested Yash should read Karan’s Takht script saying, “Has he read Takht’s script? Warning you in advance.”
Another fan reassured Karan saying, “After 12 years he will be loving it.”
One fan also shared a well-known meme of another one of Karan’s hit films, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Ghum (2001).
The meme featured Amitabh Bachchan with the caption of his character’s line, “Kah dia na, bas, kah dia.”
Despite his son calling his hit film “very boring”, Karan himself has previously criticised his film. According to an interview with Mid Day, Karan said:
“Rahul (Shah Rukh Khan) doesn’t stand for very much.”
“He’s a deeply confused character, doesn’t know what he wants and really didn’t do much in the movie.
“Whatever happened to him was because there were people pushing him – his dead wife’s spirit, his eight-year-old daughter and Anjali (Kajol) herself.
“What made him endearing was his charm, his large heart and Shah Rukh’s personal charisma. There was no logic or backstory to the characters.
“You don’t know what Shah Rukh, or anyone else, does for a living in the movie. And the eight letters, one for each birthday, made no sense either.”
There is no doubt the greatest critics are closer to home and this is certainly true in Karan’s case.
