Shakun Batra set to direct Karan's next
Director Shakun Batra, who has worked as an assistant director in films like Rock On, Jaane Tu …Ya Jaane Na, made his debut as an independent director with Karan Johar's previous movie Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu. The director is now all set to helm another movie for Dharma Productions.

In an exclusive interview with PTI, Shakun Batra spoke about his next project. The director said, "I have a three film contract with Dharma Productions. I would be making two-three films for them. I am toying with few ideas but nothing is concrete yet. I have two-three ideas that are something new and different."

The budding director is yet to work on a concrete idea for his next project with Karan Johar. Shakun Batra added, "It won't be like a romantic film. It won't be out-an-out romantic-comedy film. All the three ideas have one thing - drama, they deal with drama. They talk about day-to-day human things. All I can say is I am working towards the ideas that I have in my mind."

However, Shakun clarifies that he is not going to make a heavy dose film with social issues. Shakun Batra further said, "Scripting takes 6-8 months, then finding actors. So my next film will happen only next year. Currently, I am working with Karan on a short film. I can't talk about it. Next few months I will be occupied with this."
