Bollywood renowned director Karan Johar, who was last seen directing the movie Student Of The Year back in 2013, says he will go behind the camera again by the end of 2014. The director is presently busy with a few small screen projects like, being a judge at the reality show India’s Got Talent and also on his chat show Koffee With Karan.
“I will direct by the end of this year. December this year, I will start my next film. That’s all I can say at the moment,” Karan said in a recent interview.
There were reports that Karan may direct a period drama, but he denied it and said, “It’s not a period drama. It’s a different film which I can’t talk about it right now.”
Karan first donned the director’s hat for the 1998 Shahrukh Khan-starrer Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. He went on to make films like Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna and more.
Meanwhile, Siddharth Shuklka, who rose to stardom with TV show Balika Vadhu, after playing lead roles in soaps for four years, now seems all set for his B-Town innings. The actor recently signed a three film contract with Karan Johar. The actor will be seen making his debut in Karan Johar’s upcoming production Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya which also stars Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt as leads.
When contacted Siddharth, he confirmed the news and shared, “I’m very excited about this opportunity. I didn’t plan anything about films. It just happened. Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6 was the turning point in my career. Karan (Johar) sir (who judged the latest season) and I had lot of conversations on the sets and not just that, the show made me savvy about dance as well.” Talking about the role Siddharth says, “I don’t have details about the role, but is going to be an important one.”
What about Balika Vadhu? Does he plan to continue? “As of now, I haven’t had a word with my producers about this. I’m still shooting for the show. Let’s see how things works out.”
