Shakun Batra to direct a drama for Karan Johar
By Hindustan Times
Shakun Batra, who made his debut as a director with Karan Johar's home production Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu, is all set to direct a drama. Shakun started as an assistant director in films like Rock On, Jaane Tu..Ya Jaane Na. For his debut he brought together the unusual pair of Kareena Kapoor and Imran Khan.
The film produced by Dharma Productions was a hit.
"I have a three film contract with Dharma Productions. I would be making two-three films for them. I am toying with few ideas but nothing is concrete yet. I have two-three ideas that are something new and different," Shakun told PTI.
"It won't be like a romantic film. It won't be out-an-out romantic-comedy film. All the three ideas have one thing - drama, they deal with drama. They talk about day-to-day human things. All I can say is I am working towards the ideas that I have in my mind," he said.
Shakun also said that he is not going to make a heavy dose film, with social issues.
"Scripting takes 6-8 months, then finding actors. So my next film will happen only next year," he said.
Shakun is currently busy working on a short film.
"Right now I am working with Karan on a short film. I can't talk about it. The next few months I will be occupied with this," he said.
