‘SOTY’ is my last stint at young film: Karan Johar

Karan Johar is no longer going to make a ‘young’ film after his upcoming ‘Student of the Year’. Reason? The director of films like ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’, ‘Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham’ and ‘Kabhie Alvida Na Kehna’ feels he was born old. While talking about ‘Student of the Year’ which he is currently filming, KJo says, “I am going to be 40 in May and filming with these 20 plus actors has made me realise that this is definitely my last stint at a ‘young’ film.” The director, who has won many accolades and awards for his films that are usually looked upon as ‘larger than life’ is however, open to making other films, something that does not have the ‘young’ theme. Sharing more about why he feels ‘Student of the Year’ is his last ‘young’ film, KJo says, “At heart, I think I was born old. Even at 25, I felt more easy directing the second half of ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’.” He has a word of praise for the actors in ‘SOTY’. “The three kids in ‘SOTY’ are lovely. Sid has a silent strong charm, Varun has a real fun bratty appeal, Alia is vivacious and super cute,” he says.
