Karan Johar: Actors are the most vulnerable and insecure human beings that exist

Karan Johar

Karan Johar's latest release 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' had found itself the centre of a huge controversy regarding the inclusion of Pakistani actors in Indian movies. The movie's cast included Pakistani actor Fawad Khan, who left India when the controversy escalated. Insisting that he was a liberal person, Johar stated that he was scared to put across a point in fear of causing an uproar. ”I feel scared to raise a point in my film, I feel scared to give an opinion and then I feel scared what’s going to happen during the release of my film,”

Karan who is a specialist in romantic cinema explained that directors need to work behind the camera to extract great performances from the actors. ”Actors, according to me, are the most vulnerable, insecure human beings that exist. And I think it’s not possible for you to just deal with them professionally. From a very young age, I discovered you are their counselor, their guide, their therapist, their everything,” he said. Karan enjoys a great rapport with most of the Bollywood stars, which is evident from their appearances on his chat show 'Koffee with Karan'.

Karan was a guest on the show 'Bollywood Roundtable 2016 with Rajeev Masand' which also features other filmmakers like Ram Madhvani, Ali Abbas Zafar and Nitesh Tiwari.
