Hope general budget doesn’t forget Bollywood: Karan JoharMarch 15th, 2012 - 3:35 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, March 15 (IANS) Filmmaker Karan Johar, who has given blockbusters like “Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham”, “Wake Up Sid” and “Agneepath”, is hoping that the general budget Friday doesn’t forget Bollywood.
“Well, all we hope is that we are also considered. We entertain the entire nation and I think we also contribute to the psyche of this country and I think it is very important to think about us as well,” the 39-year-old said here at the opening ceremony of FICCI FRAMES.
Karan says keeping the growth of the entertainment industry in mind, it should be given more incentives.
“There is a 12 percent growth and the estimated growth is 13 percent and then eventually it’s 16 percent. So the scope is growing, so I think we are on a growth pattern which is very good,” said Karan who had a great start to 2012 with his production “Agneepath” hitting the bull’s eye.
Karan’s production house Dharma Productions is currently working on three films - “Student Of The Year”, “Dostana 2″ and “Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani”.
While he is directing “Student Of The Year”, he has finalised Ayan Mukerji of “Wake Up Sid” fame to direct “Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani” starring Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone.
