Post Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (KANK), director Karan Johar has found a new job to keep himself occupied - that of a marriage counsellor!
"I'm here in New York and doing a great job of advising Indian couples on their marriages. Kabhi Alvida... seems to have triggered off this chain of doubts and revisions in the minds of many couples. And they feel I'm in a position to advise them. Lucky me, poor them," said Johar, who is holidaying in New York.
News is Johar has already started working on his next project. Without going into too many details at the moment, it would be a film that would again take him into the arena of mature human relationships.
"That's the only way to go," asserted Johar.
"I've tasted blood. And okay, not everyone loved my effort to probe the cult of marriages. But the response has encouraged me to go beyond KANK the next time. But for now I'm in New York for a richly deserved holiday," Johar told IANS.
Not New York again! Didn't he shot KANK there?
"Yes, I did. But it's one thing to shoot a film in a city. It's another thing to holiday in the same city. When you're on location, you can never enjoy the place. I am finally getting to be in New York without looking at every landscape for a potential shot."
In the second week of September, Johar will go to Canada to attend the Toronto Film Festival where KANK will be screened under the title Never Say Goodbye in the Gala Presentations section.
The film stars Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Rani Mukerji and Preity Zinta.
"Amit-ji will also be joining me in Toronto from London (where he's shooting for Balkrishnan's Cheeni Kam). Should be loads of fun."
