The last part of the tweet is hinting at his next directorial. This is rather interesting news for the entire industry and the movie is definitely going to be extra special. After all, Karan Johar will be donning the director’s hat after 5 years.

It also had a very special guest appearance by Shah Rukh Khan. While the movie did fairly well at the box office soon after hitting screens all over India, Karan Johar hadn’t returned to direction after that.

As he stated in his video, he took some time off from the creative end of Dharma productions to take care of the business aspect.

Today, on the occasion of Ranveer’s Birthday, Karan Johar announced his next project “Rocky Aur Rani ki Prem Kahani”, it features Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh.  It is a tale of romance that is also going to feature veteran actress Jaya Bachchan, Shabana Azmi, and Dharmendra in a pivotal role.

The film is a rooted love story with strong family emotions.
