Both Karan Johar and Zoya Akhtar are well-known directors. Both have directed many movies.
Talking about Karan Johar’s work, Son of producer Yash Johar, he made his directorial debut with the romantic comedy-drama Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), which earned him the National Film Award for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment as a director, Filmfare Award for Best Director and the Filmfare Award for Best Screenplay. His next films, the ensemble family melodrama Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham… (2001) and the ensemble musical romantic drama Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006), were both very successful in the domestic and overseas market. His social drama My Name Is Khan (2010) earned him his second Filmfare Award for Best Director. The 2018 spy thriller Raazi won him Filmfare Award for Best Film. These, along with the several successful films he has produced under the Dharma Productions banner, have established him as one of the leading director-producers in Hindi cinema. In 2020, he was conferred with the Padma Shri award, the fourth-highest civilian honour of India.
And if we talk about Zoya Akhtar’s work, She has directed movies such as Luck by Chance (2009), Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011) and Sheila Ki Jawani, a segment of Bombay Talkies (2013). She has co-written Talaash (2012) alongside Reema Kagti. She then went on to direct Dil Dhadakne Do (2015) and Gully Boy (2019).
Zoya Akhtar has done less work than Karan Johar, so according to this, Karan Johar is a better director. But Zoya Akhtar has also directed very good movies, so it would not be right to say anything.
