Karan Johar has always maintained he will launch his friend superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan in Bollywood but the filmmaker says as his godparent, he will wait for Aryan to finish his studies before making an entry into films.
Recently, Shah Rukh also said that his 19-year-old son will have to complete his graduation before taking up a career in Bollywood, if that’s what he wishes to do in future.
“Aryan has to study now and after few years he will decide if he wants to enter movies. I am his godparent and I will hope for the best,” Karan said when asked about his plans to launch Aryan.
When asked when he is planning to launch Shah Rukh’s youngest son, AbRam, KJo said: “AbRam? He is going to turn three-year old in May. First I’ll launch Aryan and then we will see about AbRam.”
The filmmaker was speaking at the party for his upcoming film Baar Baar Dekho, which he co-produces with Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment. The love story stars Katrina Kaif and Sidharth Malhotra. KJo said the movie, directed by newcomer Nitya Mehra is anything but a typical romantic-comedy.
“When you watch the film you’ll understand why the film is titled Baar Baar Dekho. It is not a regular normal love story. Usually there is a term called ‘rom-com’ (romantic comedy) this film is definitely not that. It is very progressive, interesting and one of the most unusual love stories you’ve ever seen,” he said.
When asked which actress would he want to see on screen baar baar (again and again), Karan, 43, said, “I would love to watch Sridevi baar baar. But she doesn’t do films often so I request her to do films again.”
