Karan Johar set to focus on kids now


In recent times, apart from Taare Zameen Par, Stanley Ka Dabba and Chillar Party, few have made a mark in the genre. Maybe that is why, Karan Johar has decided to take up the challenge with his next. Dharma Productions is coming up with a kid’s movie, directed by debutante Sonam Nair.

This is the first time that Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions is coming up with an out and out kids-only movie: completely another genre from the usual one, Gippi. Directed by first time director Sonam Nair – who assisted Ayan Mukherjee on Wake up Sid – the film is going to be hatke and surely interesting to watch out for. Based on an overweight child who hates dieting, this story will surely ring a bell with today’s youngsters.

Since this film doesn’t feature any big star, Arjun was roped in to shoot a special promo. Having been an obese kid himself, the Ishaqzaade star seemed to be the obvious choice for the teaser. Most of the shoot for the film was done in the scenic locales of Simla, while some portions are now being completed in Mumbai. 
The movie is set to release on May 10.
