Karan Johar keen to make a queer love story

By: Mohnish Singh

Karan Johar is one of the biggest filmmakers that Hindi cinema has seen ever since coming into being. Almost all his movies that he has directed over the years have attained blockbuster status. Not just as a director, he has made his name also as a producer who backed some of the most successful films in the last two decades.

The Dharma Productions’ head honcho always tries to push the envelope with his film and now with the Supreme Court of India decriminalizing homosexuality in the country, the director wants to make a love story that centres on two individual of the same sex.

“Being a leading filmmaker, I can make movies on the subject. I would love to make a homosexual love story and would want to cast two leading actors in the film,” Karan said during his latest interaction with media.

He went on to add, “I don’t have in mind specific names of the actors I want to cast in the film, but want to make such a film.”

Johar, who last helmed Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016), is gearing up to direct his most ambitious project Takht, a period drama starring Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar, Anil Kapoor and Janhvi Kapoor in lead roles.

It should not come as a surprise if after completing Takht, the filmmaker goes on to announce a film based on a same-sex love story.
