Karan Johar has been known for displaying first world problems and serious dramas on the screen, with Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya being an exception to it.
But now, the man is all set to experiment with his abilities to tickle our funny bones by directing a portion of the sequel to the 2013 flick Bombay Talkies.
If attempting a genre that KJo hasn’t tried before doesn’t convince you of his need to diversify, his choice of lead actor for the comedy series will definitely come as a surprise to you.
If reports are to be believed, Vicky Kaushal, who has just wrapped up the Alia Bhatt-starrer Raazi will be the leading man here. Seems like the rushes of Raazi, the Alia Bhatt starrer which has been produced by Dharma, has seriously impressed him.
As per the sources, “The series will be an out and out comedy where Karan will unleash his creativity to the brim. Karan approached Vicky after seeing the rushes of Raazi and after giving screen test Vicky was selected to play the main lead. The final paperwork is yet to take place next week.”
Karan’s movie will be produced by Ashi Dua and presented by Ronnie Screwvala.
For Vicky, it would be an opportunity to prove his mettle and breaking the stereotype at an early stage of his career.
