Filmmaker Karan Johar, who was directed by Anurag Kashyap in Bombay Velvet is a bit too straight and arrogant when it comes to casting. At the Bombay Velvet trailer launch, Karan Johar said he will never cast Anurag Kashyap in his film.
Doesn't he sound a little too arrogant? Want to know why?
The reason Karan Johar gave was Anurag Kashyap is not good-looking and Karan takes only good-looking actors in his films.
"I will not cast Anurag in my film. I only take good-looking actors. I will not make a film where Anurag fits in. Can you imagine Anurag in 'New York'? You see him in 'Gangs of Wasseypur' kind of films," Karan Johar said.
However, he also said that he would never direct himself.
"I will never direct myself. I can't be my own liability. I am open to offers. I don't have a delusion that I can do lead roles, but good supporting roles I will do."
Karan Johar will be seen in a negative role in Bombay Velvet. He said yes to this film because no one else would ever offer him a negative role.
