He added, “Whether it’s a ‘KGF’, ‘RRR’ or ‘Sooryavanshi’, people have watched them. But that doesn’t mean all the larger-than-life event films work…the way I do. I said, there is no formula. Our movie is pure family drama that has emotion, comedy and everything we grew up watching in a Karan Johar movie!”
