Is Karan Johar planning a film with Abhishek Bachchan? Well, it does seem so, but everyone connected to the project are tightlipped. The very talented Bachchan Junior has not been very lucky with his choices of roles when it has come to solo starrers and hence has shied away from signing many.
Even as he has signed Manmarziyaan for director Anurag Kashyap and producer Aanand L Rai, Karan Johar has major plans afoot to get a script ready for Abhishek which can make sure that the actor can establish a foothold again in Bollywood.
“Earlier Ram Gopal Varma was to make a film with Abhishek, but Ramu is all over the place and Nagarjuna has ensured that Ramu does not mess around anywhere else till he completes his fifth film with him, shooting of which is underway in Mumbai. So now Karan who is also close to the Bachchans has taken it upon himself to do a project worthy of Bachchan junior,” says a source.
Karan’s last film as a director Ae Dil Hai Mushkil starred Abhishek’s actress wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. What is not confirmed is whether Karan will only bankroll the film or even direct it.
