Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions’ deal with Lyca Productions called off? Read Deets
Last year in October reportedly, one of the biggest productions down South, Lyca Productions was all geared up to enter Bollywood and produce Hindi films. Karan Johar‘s Dharma Productions was also said to be collaborating with Lyca. After the Fox group was taken over by Walt Disney they backed out on new films in India and the filmmaker had been looking for a studio partner ever since. That is when Johar began talks with Lyca and they had collaborated with Rajnikanth-Akshay Kumar starrer 2.0 in 2018.
Now, if the latest reports are to be believed then the deal is said to have fallen off as source revealed to Bollywood Hungama, “Lyca Productions has backed out of the deal with Dharma Productions. No one exactly knows the reason behind it as only the top honchos were involved in all the discussions. But the deal is not happening.”

The report further said that Karan Johar, for now, has Fox-Disney backing him up for Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor starrer Brahmastra which is going to be their last film in Bollywood. Post that, Karan will be requiring the support of a studio for his upcoming movies like Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani‘s Shershaah, Dostana 2, Varun Dhawan and Kiara’s Jug Jugg Jeeyo, the Ananya Panday and Vijay Deverakonda starrer Liger, Shakun Batra’s next and Shashank Khaitan’s next.
But, there is no such crisis situation at Dharma Productions as an insider revealed, “Karan Johar is one of the most successful filmmakers at present. Most of his films work big time. I am sure he’ll soon get a partner and that’ll ease his woes to a great extent.”
