In the past, Karan Johar together with Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar, and Dibakar Banerjee gave us an odd anthology movie, Bombay Talkies in 2013. Now as stated by a famous daily, the director is planning to give a comedy angle to the film’s sequel; a genre Karan has never tried before.
A source revealed the daily, “It will be an out-and-out comedy. Karan has never tried his hand at this genre, but, with Bombay Talkies, he unleashes his creative side. The story will revolve around a small-town couple, thus, breaking away from the grandeur and elite people synonymous to his films.”
It is stated that Karan has signed Vicky Kaushal for the lead role. “Karan approached him after he saw a few rushes of Raazi. Vicky has given a screen test for his part. The final paperwork will take place next week,” further added the source.
It is guessed that Parineeti might essay the female role in the movie depending on if she can take out time from her busy schedule.
The shooting of this movie will begin from the third week of December. The movie will be produced by Ashi Dua and Ronnie Screwvala will present it.
