The general sentiment in the film industry may be of recession and economic slowdown but still there are few select film personas for whom the term recession is far long away. Karan Johar is one such person, whom big corporate distribution offices are chasing with big bucks to sell them his in-production ventures.
A source says, "There are two particular leading corporates who have desperately been pitching to acquire the worldwide rights of Karan Johar's forthcoming ventures, My Name Is Khan and Wake Up, Sid. They had earlier tried the same for Karan produced Dostana as well but the filmmaker cum show host maintained his loyalty to Yash Raj Films and sold his film's rights to them for a fat pay check. But now the money offered to Karan is so obscenely high this time that even he has been left wondering whether to give his nod or maintain his loyalty towards Yash Raj who is already facing tough times on all fronts!"
Karan's My Name Is Khan shall begin shooting soon in the USA and stars Shahrukh Khan and Kajol whereas his other in-production film, Wake Up, Sid has the unusual pairing of Ranbir Kapoor and Konkona Sen Sharma.
