Karan Johar took a huge gamble with the film Student Of The Year, however the film worked wonders not just for the debutant cast but also for the director. Now even before he moves on to his next feature film, Karan will be directing Rani Mukerji
and Randeep Hooda in a short film for Bombay Talkies.
The upcoming venture Bombay Talkies, which features short films from various directors, will feature Karan directing a love story with Rani and Randeep in the lead. Saqib Saleem (of Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge fame) will also be seen in Karan's segment of Bombay Talkies. While adding a realistic touch to the film, it is learnt that KJo will be shooting the film on the streets of Mumbai.
Bombay Talkies (featuring short films directed by Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar and Dibakar Banerjee) will release on May 3, when Indian Cinema will complete its 100 years.
