    Karan Johar has launched many actors in Bollywood, off late even though he is not directing a movie, he is seen producing various movies launching debutantes or giving a break to talented directors as well.

    Everybody knows how the trip stars cast of the film Student Of The Year ended up changing their life thanks to Karan Johar. Ali Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan all got a break from this movie and it was only because of the support of director cum producer Karan Johar.

    Karan is too good when it comes to spotting talent, the actor has a keen eye at such creative talents which help him first spot and then given good backing and support from his production house, Dharma productions.

    From debutante directors to actors, Karan knows exactly who has stars in their fate and who doesn't. In fact Karan's latest spotting is Kangana Ranaut., he is collaborating with her for his upcoming production venture Ungli. In this film, he is teaming up with Emraan Hashmi, Kangana and Randeep Hooda. 

    The director has apparently become a fan of Kangana, we know she is already a star but Karan has the capability to simply maker people not just any star but the star. His backing has always proved to be beneficial and that's why he is known to have many friends and very less foes in the industry.

    Karan is so impressed with Kangana's performance in the movie, Ungli, that he has been showering praises on her non-stop. This will be the first Dharma film for the super talented actress. With Karan complimenting her so much, we are sure the two will be seen collaborating on many projects in the near future.

    Meanwhile let's take a look at those lucky few actors whose stars where changed by Karan Johar. Here is a list of 10 actors who became stars because of Karan Johar.

    Alia Bhatt

    If it weren't for her debut film Student Of The Year which was produced by Karan Johar, we have no idea where Alia would have been today.


    Kajol is Karan Johar's lucky charm, we do not know if her charm really works but every Karan Johar movie is incomplete without Kajol.

    Preity Zinta

    Preity was going through a lull time in her career when Kal Ho Na Ho happened and everyone know what a big hit the film was. Kareena was the first choice for the role and even today she regrets not having done the film.

    Rani Mukerji

    Rani had already debuted in the industry but no one took notice of her till Kuch Kuch Hota Hai happened, after which she has never turned back. Most of her films too were with Karan Johar.

    Shahrukh Khan

    Shahrukh was a star but most of you will agree when I say that his star status retained due to Karan Johar and the numerous films the duo did together.

    Sidharth Malhotra

    It is very difficult for people without god father to enter the industry but Sidharth had the backing of Karan Johar which worked really well thanks to the super hit film, Student Of The Year.

    Varun Dhawan

    In spite of being a director's son, he got his first big break with Karan Johar. His movies with his dad din't work that well compared to the films he has collaborated with Karan Johar.

    Imran Khan

    Imran had a super hit deut after which he had a string of flops, his film with Karan, I Hate Luv Storys si what gave me comeback in the industry.

    John Abraham

    John entered Bollywood with Jism and got typecast for such movies and he was also known to have a plastic face, but it was Dostana that brought him more into lime light. Karan's film showed him exposing his toned butt after which John has had a good career in Bollywood.

    Saif Ali Khan

    Saif Ali Khan is a talented actor but it was his role in Kal Ho Na Ho that brought him back from the lost causes and gave him a new lease of star status.
