Karan Johar throws party for ‘Lootera’ team


Impressed with the yet to be released movie, ‘Lootera’, filmmaker Karan Johar throws a party for the entire cast and the crew of ‘Lootera’. He invited them to a restaurant nearby his home. He praised director Vikramaditya Motwane and also Ranveer and Sonakshi’s performance.

“It was a very surprising gesture, but he wanted to encourage the young team behind the film,” says a unit member. Karan adds, “Yes, I invited them for dinner. Generally, when you’re happy about something, you celebrate it, and that was the idea. We had a great time."

“It’s not every day that we get to see an impressive love story. He has extracted terrific performances from Ranveer Singh and Sonakshi Sinha (the lead pair). They should both be proud that at such a young age, they have come up with such powerful performances,” he says.

“We haven’t seen such a love story on celluloid in a long time. Kudos to Ekta (Kapoor; co-producer) and Vikram for it.”

Ask him if he’d offer Vikram a chance to direct films under his home banner, Dharma Productions, and Karan says, “I’d love to have him on board. In fact, I’d told him that even after watching his first film, Udaan (2010), so let’s see.”

After watching the movie, filmmaker Karan Johar tweeted: 'Saw the superbly crafted and performed #LOOTERA...@sonakshisinha is a revelation!!! All accolades for vikram...team Phantom and team Balaji!'

Sonakshi highly excited about all the feedback she got for the film as she tweeted: 'Just saw Lootera, truly a labour of love. Tonight I sleep like a baby :)'
