I don`t judge talent, I only judge impact: Karan Johar
Mumbai: Filmmaker Karan Johar, who is on board to judge the fifth season of reality TV show `India`s Got Talent`, believes he cannot pass a judgement on anyone`s talent as long as he is not better at it himself. So, he only shares his "creative opinion" on the impact of contestants` performances.
"I don`t judge, I only offer opinion. I think `judgemental` and `judge` are harsher terms that we have to live with. Who am I to judge a dancer (when) I am not a dancer, or who am I to judge a singer (when) I am not a singer," Karan said while speaking to the press here.
"I don`t judge but I offer my creative opinion as a director. I judge impact, I don`t judge talent. For me, to judge the talent, I have to be better at that myself. So all I can judge is stage impact."
On `India`s Got Talent`, Karan will be joined on the judges panel by actors Kirron Kher and Malaika Arora Khan.
Karan says nothing is scripted in a show like `India`s Got Talent`, where people from all cultures, backgrounds and age groups participate and showcase their myriad talents.
"It is all real. I have never been given a single line to say. I just sit there and say whatever comes to my head and heart. The emotions are there in the back stories of these contestants...you don`t have to script them."
"You don`t have to script their screenplay, their lives are fascinating...some are heartbreaking and how can you script anything that has so many varied cultures, so many stories and a series of obstacles that they have combatted," asked the 41-year-old.
