Karan Malhotra’s wife Ekta to turn directorAugust 24th, 2012 - 6:40 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, Aug 24 (IANS) “Agneepath” director Karan Malhotra’s wife Ekta might wield the megaphone soon too, but only once her husband’s next movie, scripted by her, hits the screens.
“She (Ekta) has all the plans to be a director. Hopefully, after my film she will soon be directing her next film,” Karan told IANS.
Ekta has earlier worked as an assistant director in Yash Raj Films’ “Veer-Zaara” and “Salaam Namaste”, and is currently busy working on the script of his next directorial.
Refusing to share much details about his movie, Karan said: “All I can say is this will not be a remake. It’s an original film.”
Karan met Ekta for the first time during “Jaan-E-Mann”, and later they worked together as assistant directors on “Jodhaa Akbar” and “My Name Is Khan”. They tied the knot in 2009.
He says Ekta contributed a lot to “Agneepath”, “but she didn’t get the credit for that.”
“Then she decided to write my next film for which both of us connected very well. It’s a script close to my heart. It’s a kind of thought of married life and the evolution we have gone through spiritually and psychologically.”
“I will try my best to justify her vision. We both trust each other and we work as a team. I’m quite sure and excited about this project,” he added.
