Bollywood is a soft target… Why does the lawyer’s team read the script of every Karan Johar film first?

There are frequent controversies about films. Sometimes over the script, sometimes over the songs, sometimes over the clothes, the ruckus starts. To avoid such trouble, the production house has now started recruiting a legal team. The script is reviewed by the legal team before the film is made and thus the makers censor the controversial part before the controversy arises. Karan Johar has also spoken about this issue in a recent interview. He mentioned online targeting and court cases against the film. Karan says that since Bollywood is a soft target, hiring a legal team has become necessary to avoid controversy.

Talking about self-censorship in an interview, Karan Johar says, “There is a fear that we will get into some kind of legal trouble. Now we have a legal department in every institution. We don’t want a court case, we don’t want an FIR against us, so that we can avoid it. Every script, whether it’s from Dharma Productions or our digital production Dharmatik Entertainment, first goes through legal censorship internally, only after that we go ahead and make the film.

Was the legal team hired out of fear?

Karan says we don’t do this because we are afraid, we just don’t want to take the stress and pressure of fighting a court case and spend energy on such things. Meanwhile, he said that the people who are protesting, I think they are not the ones who have real objections. These are people who have a habit of making noise without any reason.

Karan continued, “Sometimes I think all this happens because Bollywood or Indian cinema is a soft target. There are many people, they say and do different things, but when we say something, we start appearing everywhere. We are targeted online. It is true that we are a soft target. We are a soft power, a soft target. This is the irony of life.

Karan applied to the court

Recently, Karan Johar himself reached the court against him for the film ‘Shaadi Ke Director Karan Oh Johar’. He filed a petition in the Bombay High Court, seeking a permanent ban on the film and injunctions against the film’s producer, writer and director.
