‘What the Love’ trailer: Karan Johar is back with another love lesson
Netflix has released the trailer of its brand new dating reality show, “What The Love”, hosted by filmmaker Karan Johar.
Karan Johar has always been credited for reinventing romance in Bollywood. He is the reason every Simran desperately waits for his Raj, but sadly Raj is just like “achhe din”, he never shows up.
After delivering unrealistic concepts of love on the silver screen, Karan Johar is now back with another love lesson. The filmmaker has collaborated with Netflix for a dating reality show named “What The Love”. The show is produced by BBC Studios India and is set to release on January 30.
The show is a bit different from the already existing dating shows. It does focus on finding your right match but not just that. It intends to teach people how to love oneself before trying to love somebody else.
In the trailer, Karan is seen helping the participants, who are on their quest for true love, become comfortable in their own skin. Shedding away the heavy layers of insecurities, fears, self doubt and past baggage, the contestants are shown becoming the best versions of themselves with the guidance of Karan, fashion and style expert Maneka Harinsinghani and makeup and hair artist Shaan Muttathil.
Glimpses of celebrities like Saif Ali Khan, Parineeti Chopra, Ali Fazal, Huma Qureshi and Sunny Leone giving contestants love, personality and dating advice, also show how this reality show will definitely be a star-studded affair.
Speaking about his new show, Karan said: “Love, match-making, and hosting -- What The Love! With Karan Johar has given me three things that come naturally to me, all in one go! We’ve all been through difficult phases of self-doubt and low confidence, which often affect our ability to put ourselves out there. Through this show, I want people to look inward and truly love and accept themselves, so that they can find their path to their happily ever after.”
On the work front, Karan Johar has another Netflix anthology, “The Other”, lined up for 2020. His Dharma Productions has also announced its next project, a movie based on the life and times of India's external intelligence agency R&AW founder Rameshwar Nath Kao. The movie is said to be an adaptation of a book on Kao titled, “RN Kao: Gentleman Spymaster”, penned by Nitin Gokhale.
