I know my acting stint was scarier than the current virus but there is no harm in hoping for a second chance! So to all enterprising casting directors ,to all risk taking filmmakers , to critics with a high threshold of pain and to easy to please audiences I have an announcement to make!!!! I AM AVAILABLE FOR FATHER ROLES! ( at 48 with a poor track record I promise i can’t afford to be choosy)
When Karan Johar mentioned in his post that now that his greys are showing and he is 48 with not-so-good acting career, he is willing to give father roles a try. This was that, and producer Ekta Kapoor offered him a role in one of her daily soaps.
She wrote, “I have a daily soap! Rishabh Bajaj has white hair n is hot!!!! N. we always do face swaps! Pls come on tv!!!!! We r v easy to please here!!!”
While Instafam was enjoying this funny conversation between these two Bollywood creators, Farah Khan came forward with a humorous punch and was quick to express her apprehensions. She commented, “Ul be more high maintenance than the heroine!!”
Casting director Shanoo Sharma wrote, “I am on it”. Well who wouldn’t want Karan Johar in their movie! Kriti Sanon and Shilpa Shetty appeared to be appreciative of his new look and said it suited him. Shilpa Shetty wrote, “Actually liking this look on you.” While they were full of compliments, Anil Kapoor didn’t want any competition and commented, “Mere pet pe kyon laat mar rahe ho sir..”
Karan’s last directorial was Ghost Stories on Netflix. His future project includes Takht which is based in the Mughal era and has a huge star cast.
