If there is one thing that Karan Johar enjoys as much as making movies it is mentoring talent. Three of his discoveries created history simultaneously when Sidharth Malhotra,Alia Bhatt and Varun Bhatt became stars after Student Of The Year.
Though technically Fawad Khan is not Johar’s discovery—he has a slew of Pakistani serials behind him and he was brought to India by Anil Kapoor’s daughter Rhea—the Dharma helmer has made Fawad a part of his professional family. After working with Karan in Kapoor & Sons and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil(the latter directed byShakun Batra) Karan has now signed on Fawad for a third film to be directed by new director Aditya Dhar.
And Katrina who has just done Dharma’s co-production Baar Baar Dekho, is also being mentored by KaranJohar.
Says a source, “Katrina and Fawad will star in a film to be directed by Aditya Dhar and photographed by RaviChandran who shot Katrina’s Baar Baar Dekho. The film will be shot in Delhi in November.”
