Mumbai Filmmaker Karan Johar, best known for love stories and family entertainers, feels that technology has killed the romance in real life and now it is killing the conversation between people.
"I find conversation among people has become very rare about art and artists. Phone has become like a part of our body now. We are always distracted for various reasons," Karan said at the launch of Ustad Amjad Ali Khan's book Master on Masters on Tuesday.
"I don't see people talking to each other at all. People in families also don't communicate with each other quite often. Just like technology has killed the romance, now it has also killed the conversation," Karan said.
"...I have been in and around the filmmakers all my life. I have had the pleasure to see Raj Kapoor on film set, saw Yash Chopra directing a film and be in music session with Laxmikant-Pyarelal. I clearly remember that generation communicated, engaged and shared their work and experience and so much," he added.
The filmmaker feels that it doesn't happen anymore, at least not "in my fraternity".
On work front, after the success of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Karan is now gearing up for the release of magnum opus Baahubali 2 : The Conclusion.
He has acquired the theatre rights of the Hindi version of Baahubali franchise, which film he will present under the banner of Dharma Productions.
The film is scheduled for release on April 28.
