Karan Johar was honored with the Best Author award by Raymond Crossword Book Awards in Partnership with Wizcraft on Thursday. During media interaction, Karan said, he sees a lot of potential in Manushi Chillar.
Dismissing the rumors about signing Manushi Chillar, Karan said, “there is no truth to the news yet. we are very proud of Manushi’s achievements. I was hosting the show the year she won, so I have met her before and I did see potential in her. I look forward to meeting her, I haven’t met her yet after she won the crown for India. But there has been nothing discussed yet.”
After winning the award, for the An Unsuitable Boy released in 2016, Karan addressed the media saying, “I am quite excited about the fact that so many people were excited to know about my life, and I feel very honored to receive this award.”
When asked if he will be writing another book he said, I will write the part two after next 30 years. By then hopefully, I will have enough experience and material to write the next book.
After receiving awards for best producer, director and now author, when asked if we should be expecting the best actor, after Welcome to New York, he said, “That is a comedy film, so maybe best actor in a comic role could be in the question. Anyways even if I get a nomination I’ll be happy with that. That is part of my extracurricular activities, so whatever I will get I will be happy with that.”
Karan Johar’s upcoming productions are, ‘Drive’, ‘Raazi’ Co-produced with Junglee Pictures in 2018 and ‘Kesari’ Co-produced with Cape of Good Films, and ‘Brahmastra’ Co-produced with Fox Star Studios and Namit Malhotra in 2019.
