Karan Johar made his acting debut with Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet. The film failed to make a mark at the box office and Karan didn’t get thumbs up from the critics for his performance in the movie. However, now, the filmmaker wants to give acting a second chance.

Recently, Karan posted a picture on Instagram in which he is sporting grey hair. He captioned the picture as “I know my acting stint was scarier than the current virus but there is no harm in hoping for a second chance! So to all enterprising casting directors ,to all risk taking filmmakers , to critics with a high threshold of pain and to easy to please audiences I have an announcement to make!!!! I AM AVAILABLE FOR FATHER ROLES! ( at 48 with a poor track record I promise i can’t afford to be choosy).”

Well, there were some hilarious comments on Karan’s post. Anil Kapoor commented, “Mere pet pe kyon laat mar rahe ho sir .. 🙏🙏🙏”

And Ekta Kapoor offered Karan the role of Mr Bajaj in Kasauti Zindagi Kay. She wrote, “I have a daily soap! Rishab bajaj has white hair n is hot !!!! N. We always do face swaps ! Pls come on tv!!!!! We r v easy to please here!!!”

Well, Karan has done many cameos but Bombay Velvet and Welcome To New York are the two films in which he had full-fledged roles. It will be interesting to see if he will get a second chance as an actor or not.
