Karan Johar has donned the director’s cap once again to relive the magic of youth romance in Student Of The Year (SOTY). TWF correspondent Sreya Basu gets talking to the director on his upcoming flick.
You started off with Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and then broke the genre to make My Name Is Khan and Dostana. Now you are back with a high-school romance.
Yes. I felt this was my holiday film. After My Name Is Khan I really felt the need to do something where I personally would have fun. I wanted to visit lip-sync songs, dance, youth, glamour and of course, keep the emotion intact. I felt with My Name Is Khan I had made a heavy, impactful film, which I am very proud of. But I needed to be on a holiday even on my creative field. It’s not just another film for me that we will release but a movie where we launch new talents (Varun Dhawan, Siddharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt).
