Shakun Batra to direct with a drama film for Karan Johar?
Mumbai: Shakun Batra, who made his debut as a director with Karan Johar`s home production -- `Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu` -- is all set to wield the megaphone again for a drama film.
Earlier, Shakun started worked as an assistant director in films like `Rock On`, `Jaane Tu?Ya Jaane Na`. For his debut he brought together the unusual pair of Kareena Kapoor and Imran Khan. The film produced by Dharma Productions was a hit.
"I have a three film contract with Dharma Productions. I would be making two-three films for them. I am toying with few ideas but nothing is concrete yet. I have two-three ideas that are something new and different," Shakun told reporters.
"It won`t be like a romantic film. It won`t be out-an-out romantic-comedy film. All the three ideas have one thing - drama, they deal with drama. They talk about day-to-day human things. All I can say is I am working towards the ideas that I have in my mind," he said.
However Shakun clarifies that he is not going to make a heavy dose film, with social issues.
"Scripting takes 6-8 months, then finding actors. So my next film will happen only next year," he said.
Presently, Shakun is busy working for a short film. "Currently I am working with Karan on a short film. I can`t talk about it. Next few months I will be occupied with this," he said.
