Karan Johar is one of the most prolific filmmakers we have in the country, and I have to admit, I will always be a KJo fan girl, I’ve watched Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham more times than I can possibly remember and I’m sure that’s the case with most of us 90s kids. Ask us any dialogue from the movie and we’ll instantly tell you one. I’ll probably always go with ‘good looks, good looks, and good looks’. Haha.
Karan’s last film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil did really well at the box office and both the audience and critics loved the pairing of Ranbir Kapoor with Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai. It also presented Ash in a never-seen-before avatar, for which she was lauded.
While he’s been producing movies post that, we haven’t heard anything about his next directorial venture. Student Of The Year 2 has been in the news but that won’t be directed by Karan. DNA caught up with him recently and asked him about when we’ll finally see him direct again. And his answer made us a little sad.
I actually think about that every day and I do not know the answer. I have never been more lost in my life on what I want to do next. Every day, I wake up with a different idea and I am like, ‘No, it is not exciting me’, I know the kind of film I can’t do. What I can do, I have not yet been able to tap into.
I am very restless. I am jealous of all filmmakers in my company who are making movies and I am not. The other day, Ayan had a photoshoot and I went on the sets and I was like, ‘Shit, I really want to make a movie.’ I want to be a director again. Because producing movies is amazing and it is satisfying and it is great for the company, etc., but the pleasure you get out of directing a film on your own and putting out your narrative is another thing.
We can’t wait to watch a film directed by you again, Karan! Please make it happen. :)
