Karan Johar, who is like the baap of romantic movies in Hindi Cinema, surprised everyone when he said He has lost the charm and the ability to write love stories.
“I find it difficult to write love stories…I think I have lost that innocence which I had when I wrote Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kal Ho Na Ho,” the film-maker said.
His latest production is Gori Tere Pyaar Mein, which hit screens last month and now, another film Hasee Toh Phasee is releasing shortly. This movie has been jointly produced by Anurag Kashyap and Karan Johar and it is a romantic comedy.
“When I read this film (‘Hasee…’) I was bowled over by its quirkness…it moved me. I was not given the option to direct this film and I think the director (Mathew) has done a great job. I am very greedy about script and content. If somebody brings great screenplay, it doesn’t matter how many names are associated with the project,” Karan said, talking at the trailer launch of the film.
“I look for sense and sensibility. These kind (commercial romantic films) have appealed to me..you all have made me this dark kind of a person. When I heard the script it made me laugh…cry,” added Kashyap.
This film releases on February 7th 2014.
