Dostana was not as huge a success as Karan had expected it to be.
Karan says that he has realized that it is high time that he, like other directors, reinvents himself and do stuff which would make him as well as India proud. And for that he has made a conscious effort to move away from the norm and do some serious stuff. He gives the example of three films, all belonging to different genres that are presently being made under Dharma Productions. The film that he is directing, My Name is Khan, has the top most actor, Shahrukh Khan and actress Kajol, yet the film is very different. No typical romance and song and dance stuff here. The next film, the Rensil D'Silva directed Saif, Kareena and Vivek starrer too is not the usual love triangle. And the third is Wake Up Sid, the Ayaan Mukherjee directed Ranbir flick, which once again is not a hard core commercial film.
Well, Karan we will miss your kind of films but you are on the right track and here is a gut feeling that you will make Hindi cinema proud with your achievements, not that you haven't till now!
