Karan Johar’s Movies That Flopped At The Box Office.

Karan Johar has been in news for supporting nepotism and creating movie mafias in Bollywood.


Karan Johar is one of the producers who are famous and often credited to make typical Bollywood romantic movies and giving chance to A-List actors most often.


Karan Johar has founded Dharma Production and produced many films over the year.


Here, we have created a list of a few movies that are considered as a loss for the Dharma Productions.

Check out the list of Karan Johar movies that are a flop.

Gori Tere Pyaar Mein


Karan Johar often made movies with A-list actors who can create buzz for the movies. Most of his movies do huge business at the box office and somehow managed to collect the movie budget.


However, Gori Tere Pyaar Mein starring Kareena and Imran was a big flop and earned less than its cost.



Ungli starring Emraan Hashmi, Kangana Ranaut, and Sanjay Dutt was produced by Karan Johar.


Despite having a star cast the movie failed to create any buzz and failed to impress the audience.

The movie somehow managed to recover its cost but the movie received negative reviews from fans and critics.



Karan Johar also risked producing a coming of age movie that showed Gippi, an overweight teenager, who struggles to handle the physical and social changes that come with her age.


Even though the movie was inspiring and relatable, it failed to generate ticket sales and was considered a box office flop.

We Are Family

Little you know about this beautiful underrated movie starring Kajol, Kareena Kapoor, and Arjun Rampal in the lead role.

It shows a caring wife and mother who wants everything perfect for her family after her death. The movie went unnoticed but appreciated by critics.

I Hate Luv Storys

Imran Khan made his roaring debut with the movie Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. He was offered many movies from all the big production houses.

I Hate Luv Storys was a typical romantic drama starring Imran and Sonam Kapoor in the lead role. The movie tanked at the box office.

Ok Jaanu

Another love story recreating the hit Jodi of Aashiqui 2 which failed to entertain the audience in the theater. Ok, Jaanu has a promising love story but the audience finds nothing new and interesting in the movie.

However, the movie managed to do average business at the box office but received negative reviews from critics and fans.

Baar Baar Dekho

The official remake of Adam Sandler’s movie Click starred Siddharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan in the lead role. The romantic comedy wasn’t impressive enough.

The movie tanked at the box office by collecting only 60 crores which is almost the budget of the movie.

Welcome To New York

The multi starrer movie Welcome To New York was also produced by Karan Johar.

He even made a cameo appearance in the movie along with many famous Bollywood stars like Sushant Singh Rajput, Salman Khan, Aditya Roy Kapoor, Riteish Deshmukh, and Lara Dutta. The movie went unnoticed.


Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt were seen sharing screens for the first time in the movies. The movie was directed by Queen Fame Vikas Bahl.

The movie became a big flop at the box office. Even Shahid Kapoor confessed that if he got the chance to undo one of his movie choices then he would choose Shaandaar.

Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship

Karan Johar announced the first horror film from Dharma Production. They even released the horror logo of the production house specially designed for horror movies.

Sadly, the movie didn’t impress the audience and probably makers would not go to release its second part.

Bombay Velvet

Bombay Velvet is the big flop of that year despite having A-list actors like Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma.

The movie was directed by Anurag Kashyap and Karan Johar was playing the villain in the movie. The movie received negative reviews as well.


Drive starring Late Sushant Singh Rajput and Jacqueline Fernandez was a rip off version of Fast and Furious series. The movie has a poor script and bad CGI.

The final product was so bad that makers were not ready to release the movie in theatres.


Kalank was a love story based on 1947. The movie starred Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Madhuri Dixit, and Sanjay Dutt in the lead role.

The movie was a big flop but it is probably because the movie failed to show the relatable picture to the audience. The colorful and flowery sets were not the thing people wanted to see during the 1947 partition.
