Filmmaker Karan Johar says he wants to act more but no offer has come his way after his “disastrous debut” in Bombay Velvet. In Anurag Kashyap’s directorial venture, Karan played the role of a villain. “No one has offered me any film after Bombay Velvet. It was such a disastrous debut that I did not get any single offer,” Karan told reporters at the trailer launch of Kapoor And Sons last evening.

The 43-year-old producer-director has expressed his desire to do supporting roles. “I am dying... Waiting for someone to offer me something. No one is going to offer me a lead role, I am waiting for good supporting roles to come my way. Even Shakun Batra (director) did not cast me for ‘Kapoor And Sons’,” he added.
