It seems Karan Johar is maintaining calm on the exterior, especially when it comes interaction with media for his upcoming films. However as per insiders, the filmmaker is going through some real rough times, courtesy the job he currently has in hand to ensure that his upcoming films sail through smoothly.
"Karan's AGNEEPATH and EK MAIN AUR EKK TU would be released within a fortnight of each other. Now he isn't someone who is new to multiple productions. After all, last year he had released WE ARE FAMILY, I HATE LUV STORYS as well as his own directorial affair MY NAME IS KHAN. However they were still spaced better. Today, Karan is going through some real hectic times because he is also in the middle of shooting STUDENT OF THE YEAR," says a close associate.
"Date tussle resulted in EK MAIN AUR EKK TU getting pushed to next year," acknowledges Karan, "Then AGNEEPATH was a monumental film and director Karan Malhotra too carried a vision to pitch the film on a huge scale. Its production was spread over months due to which the film had to be pushed to January next year."
Resultantly, this year Dharma Productions didn't have a single release but Karan has quite some catching up to do next year. It is obvious that his attention is being diverted in all directions and since he is the front channel for his production house, majority of media events as well as other promotional activities require him to take the centre stage.
Come on Karan, perk up. We are sure 'Chikni Chameli' would do the trick and charge you all over again!
