Karan Johar is not only a director and producer but a globe-trotter too. The famed director is known for spending more time in cities far away from home including Los Angeles, San Francisco, London and New York. And while he of course loves home, Mumbai, he certainly doesn’t mind travelling around the world looking for inspiration for new projects.
“I like London, but London becomes like another city that I consider home.” This is because best bud Shah Rukh Khan has his own luxury pad in the city which is naturally home to Karan. However, its New York that the director can’t stop gushing about, “I think NY is the one city that I absolutely love. I really like the irony of the city, really. I feel that it’s really fantastic and it’s buzzing with so much energy and yet there’s an inherent emptiness in there. So there’s this contradiction. It has all the energy and yet, it’s very empty and lonely. That’s the reason I find the city so intriguing.” Interestingly, the producer has had some of his most successful films shot in NYC including Kal Ho Na Ho and Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna.
KJo has been spending a lot of time in San Francisco shooting for his upcoming project My Name is Khan starring Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol.
