"I am not a versatile filmmaker, I can do only one kind of film. I think, I can do human emotional dramas, but I don't think I can pull off action films, thrillers or do something which is completely edgy," Johar told an Oye 104.8 FM radio host.
"Like I can't make films like 'Gangs of Wasseypur', 'Udaan', 'Taare Zameen Par', they are all good films. That's my biggest limitation," he added.
However, the 40-year-old loves his work, and feels his love for movies helps him avoid a feeling of loneliness due to his bachelor status.
"My mother is the most happy that I am not married, as she does not need to share her jewellery with anyone," quipped the filmmaker when asked "Don't you want to get married?"
But on a serious note, he added: "I just want to make films... My office has become my family. People who work in my office have become my world. I really don't feel the need for anyone."
He also admits that he is not as expressive as people think he is.
"The truth is that I hold back! I don't express my feelings to anyone! When I am hurt, I keep it to myself. Then after two to three years, it comes out in some other situation," he said.
