MUMBAI: The 2012 film Student Of The Year marked the Bollywood debuts of Sidharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt, and Varun Dhawan. The coming-of-age romantic drama made an impression not just for its plot but also for its hugely popular song "Ishq Wala Love," which became a romantic anthem for youth upon its release.
Karan Johar recently revealed his critiques of the film's hugely popular song. He commented that the song title makes "no sense" since ishq and love essentially mean the same thing in Hindi and English.
Johar also recounted how composers Vishal and Shekhar had been "traumatized" when they first learned what the song was going to be called.
Filmmaker Karan Johar recently opined on how he found his film Student Of The Year’s song Ishq Wala Love to not make any sense and recalled how social media became flooded with parody videos on the same.
“It made no sense. It made absolutely no sense. I remember so many parody videos were made and TVF started their career with a parody video of ‘Ishq Wala Love. They kept saying things like ‘black wala kaala and laal wala red’ and it was actually ridiculous. It made no sense,” Johar was quoted saying in a report by Indian Express and added that as per him, ishq means a ‘higher form of love’ for him.
Furthermore, he also recalled how Vishal and Shekhar were left traumatized after they were informed about the title of the film’s song as both the words mean the same.
Recalling their reactions, Karan mentioned, “I told Vishal and Shekhar ‘Ishq wala love’ and they looked really traumatized. They said, ‘Karan you do know these are the same things, right?’ I said no, I am just looking at it with flamboyance.”
Released in 2012, Student Of The Year marked the Bollywood debuts of Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan. The movie also featured actor Rishi Kapoor.
