Karan Johar Puts His Directorial Venture On HoldSeptember 2nd, 2010 - 12:52 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
September 2, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): For Karan Johar the past few weeks have been very stressful. Since Kajol one of the leading ladies of his production “We Are Family’ is on maternity leave and since his other leading lady Kareena Kapoor has to leave for the shooting of Saif Ali Khan’s “Agent Vinod’ the producer has no choice but to promote “We Are Family’ on his own.
During the past week Karan has been making do with a few hours of sleep and almost no time for any other work except the promotion of “We Are Family’.
“I’ve completely sidelined the film I’m going to direct next. I’ve no idea what it is going to be simply because I haven’t had the time to think about it . Maybe I’ll make “My Name Is Karan’ and cast myself in the lead” jokes Karan.
Karan is especially worried about “We Are Family’ because it isn’t a typical macho entertainer.
In fact Karan jokingly admits that his product was intimidated by the power of machismo in the Salman Khan starrer “Dabangg’.
“Yeah we ran away to two Fridays before “Dabangg” says Karan “Ours is the kind of film that would have a gentler impact. We are not the hare. We are the tortoise. Kajol is of course the undisputed queen of the show. But Kareena will surprise you. She has given the best performance of her career. And Arjun Rampal balances the fire and the passion of the two women.”
Karan Johar’s production house now starts shooting for its Imran Khan - Kareena Kapoor starrer in October. He confirms that all talk of Kareena losing more weight for the Imran - Kareena starrer directed by Shakun Batra is baseless. “I never said Bebo would have to lose weight or wear “chaddis’ for the part, as reported. Nor is the film called “Short Term Shaadi. That’s just the working title and we’re changing it.”
