Neha Dhupia on her 'saree-clad role' in the filmmaker's Bombay Talkies 2, and the bond she shares with him 

The new addition to Karan Johar's Bombay Talkies 2 has recently come under the spotlight for her bond with the filmmaker. Neha Dhupia tells mid-day about her "saree-clad role" in the four-part series, "We live in an age where things that interest us are reflections of what's going on in society. We don't follow the traditional hero-heroine-villain template. So, my character has been crafted accordingly. The theme of Bombay Talkies 2 is love and lust, and there's enough of that in all the short films, including the one fire eyed by Karan."

The duo's friendship has garnered sufficient attention, with Dhupia crediting Johar for constantly encouraging her. Having reinvented herself successfully as a chat show host, she finds herself braving questions on competing with Johar, who has been running an interview programme for several years. But, Dhupia negates the discussion stating, "Everything I know about talking to people on shows, I've learnt from Karan."
