Karan plays the antagonist in Bombay Velvet and his look as Kaizad Khambatta received great response. Karan Johar plays the role of a powerful businessman in the film and he is seen as someone who constantly remains drunk. While, in real life, Kjo drinks very rarely.
Hence, Karan had to do some hard work to get the traits of a drunkard. Revealing the same Karan was quoted by a leading publication saying, "Anurag wanted my eyes to be red right through as I had to come across as someone constantly drunk. Now, since I drink very rarely and that too a glass of wine socially, I didn't know how it is to be actually drunk."
He further adds, "I have seen alcoholics in the industry as there are many out there and since I am observant, I could bring in that certain sleepiness on my face. Also, my eyes are always red in the film and for that I had to put something in it daily for the effect."
"At the end of day's shoot, I had a headache but I knew it was working for the camera and the look was coming across convincingly. So, if people think that I am good then it is not just a happy accident, there are years of work that have gone into it," said Karan Johar.
