I am jealous of all filmmakers, says Karan Johar

After Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, fans are eagerly waiting for Karan Johar’s next directorial venture. Even though the film did not go down so well with the critics, the audience applauded it, primarily because of the stellar cast. But looks like KJo has nothing in store for us at the moment. While speaking to a leading daily, he revealed, “I actually think about that (directing a film) every day and I do not know the answer. I have never been more lost in my life on what I want to do next. Every day, I wake up with a different idea and I am like, ‘No, it is not exciting me’, I know the kind of film I can’t do. What I can do, I have not yet been able to tap into.”

He continued, “I am very restless. I am jealous of all filmmakers in my company who are making movies and I am not. The other day, Ayan (Mukerji) had a photoshoot and I went on the sets and I was like, ‘Shit, I really want to make a movie.’ I want to be a director again. Because producing movies is amazing and it is satisfying and it is great for the company, etc., but the pleasure you get out of directing a film on your own and putting out your narrative is another thing.”

Will Johar’s next delve into relationships?  “Might not be. I might do something away from what is expected of me. I feel, one day I will make a film that no one is expecting me to make and everyone will actually applaud it,” he concluded.
