He’s worked with all the top Khans, bar one: Shah Rukh (Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna), Salman (Kuch Kuch Hota Hai), Saif (Kal Ho Na Ho), but never with the big A – Aamir! Now the king of candyfloss wants to change tracks and turn his hand to a sex comedy a la Delhi Belly. So blown away was Karan Johar with Aamir Khan’s production, that he now seriously wants to try his own luck at a similar feature. However, Karan isn’t overly confident going at it alone and has gone on record to say that he won’t do it without the help of Aamir.
Karan has recently tried to shed his image as a producer and director, with an attempt to move towards more serious and meaningful cinema (My Name is Khan), but a film like Delhi Belly would be completely out of his comfort zone! What remains to be seen is exactly which Khan Karan will approach to lead his project: buddy Shah Rukh? Or his new found Aamir? Or will either of them be asked to step in with their respective producer hats on?
Word also has it Salman bhai recently turned down an offer to work for Karan’s Dharma Productions, owing to a string of projects the actor currently has in hand, so watch this space to see exactly which Khan teams up with Kjo!
