Is working with newbies a big advantage? Ask Karan Johar, he knows

Karan Johar has about 15 days of shoot still left for his upcoming film with newbies Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Siddharth Malhotra.

But the producer-director, who has to also juggle time for a television show, is not too worried. He feels that his film’s shoot schedule and post-production won’t be affected because of television.

He says, “This is the advantage of working with newcomers. You can get them to shoot whenever you want as their dates can be shuffled according to my convenience. There is never any date issue at all with the new lot.

Whenver I need them, they are there. The biggest date problem is me! I have to fix the shoot schedule according to my other commitments. The cast has to adjust everything for me.”

Home turf
After a recent spell in Thailand, KJo will be filming the remaining portions in Mumbai. He adds, “My television commitments will be on certain days of the week so I can manage both.”

And he has promised his mother Hiroo Johar that he will not embarass her with his dancing antics. “Otherwise she won’t allow me in the house. I don’t want to disobey her rules.”

Looks like his days of the Sheila Ki Jawani act in Simi Garewal’s chat show are a thing of the past. Simply because now he will have to wonder what his newbie actors will have to say.
