My work is my lifeline: Karan Johar
"My work is my lifeline. My films move me and I don't have a life besides my movies. They are my primary passion," Karan told us.
The man, who gave a new definition to romance with his urbane, chic romantic comedy 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai' in 1998 and followed it with other films like 'Kal Ho Na HO', doesn't follow any trend.
"I am driven only by my instinct. I don't go by what is happening around. If remakes are being made, that does not mean I will also make one. Or just because masala action films are working, does not mean I will make one. I make what I believe in and hope to achieve the best with it. I don't follow a norm or go by trends. I make what motivates me," he said.
Known for making larger than life films, Karan is the head honcho one of the leading banners Dharma Productions, whose latest offering 'Student Of The Year' has opened to mixed reactions.
But for the 40-year-old, who teamed up with a young team of newcomers - Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt and Siddharth Malhotra - it was about fulfilling his wish of making a campus film.
"Whatever I think of, I make. I wanted to make a campus film about friendship, so I made 'Student Of The Year'. It was different for us because we worked with newcomers for the first time. The whole idea excited me, so I made the film. Shooting with newcomers was a different but not a difficult experience," he said.
"I don't know what is next," he added.
