Two of the most successful filmmakers in Bollywood are coming together for a film. Yes, it is true that B town's one of the biggest producers Karan Johar and one of the most successful directors in the industry Rohit Shetty are going to work together.


Both of them come from a different background and make completely different movies. So if you are wondering how this worked out for both of them- it's pretty simple. Karan said, ''We are both passionate about cinema. Apart from that, I greatly admire Rohit as a filmmaker and a person. He has tremendous goodwill in the industry. He has the respect of his cast and crew. Everyone who has worked with him has a word of praise for him. And that's so rare in the industry. I know that they love and respect him, and for me that speaks for the kind of person he is. As a director, his track record speaks for itself.''

Speaking about the film's genre, Karan stated, ''Nothing is finalized yet. Right now, Rohit has some commitments to finish and once that's done, we'll figure out everything. Then, we'll make the big announcement.''

KJO added, ''Dharma has produced many films with first-time directors (Soham Shah, Nikhil Advani, Ayan Mukherjee, Puneet Malhotra, Rensil D'Silva, and Karan Malhotra). This is the first time we've got an established director, someone who is on top of his game.''

Karan not only admires Rohit as a person but also praises his works, ''I have enjoyed all his films and now he's making one for us. At this stage, I am more excited about producing films, rather than directing  a statement I never thought I would make.''

Rohit shetty too shared his thoughts on teaming up with Karan Johar, ''I respected his dad Yash Johar a lot, although I've never worked with him, I've heard great things about him from my mom and my seniors. When I entered Dharma office for the first time, I was entering Yashji's office, and I wished he was around to see that. I respect Karan for his achievements as a director as well as a producer. For me, making a film for Dharma is not just a project but a big responsibility.''

Rohit further continued, ''People are saying it's going to be one of the biggest collaborations ever but for me it's a film that I want to work harder for. I want to make a good and highly successful commercial film for Dharma. Not to prove anything or to anyone but to pay tribute to a man who is not with us. A man the Hindi film industry respects and loves.''
