Mumbai: Karan Johar’s great admiration for Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan is well known. The director just can’t do away with him. KJo has been so vocal about his admiration for SRK that insiders sense something more in their relationship than normal friendship. Recently, while talking about his new film to a news daily, the director went a little overboard when he was asked about the leading man in his next film, “I will never make a film without Shah Rukh. He is the most important part of my life.”
Talking about his next film, Karan said, “I have had enough of heavy-duty filmmaking for now. I want to make a fresh, funny film. In fact, I am feeling very light-hearted these days.” The director also said that he is undecided about the heroine of his next project.
“I don’t know when it will be ready. It could be six months or even a couple of years. I’ll come back and decide,” Karan added.
Karan also stated that he is happy with the way his film ‘My Name is Khan’ turned out. He says “It opened a lot of new markets. I am very glad that I made this film. In fact, the main agenda of my trip to the US is Phase 2 of ‘My Name Is Khan’ (the international release). Mulling over my next film will happen later.”
So, gear up to see the next offering, which again will be a result of Khan-Johar’s ‘dostana’!
