Transforming bad script into web series is new trend: Karan Johar
Mumbai, Dec 7 (IANS) The multitalented filmmaker-producer Karan Johar has said that making a web series out of a bad script was a trend now.
When asked if he was interested in working on web series as Ekta Kapoor is venturing into it and exploring the digital media, Karan said: “No. I do not want to be early birds. These days, if people are not making film, they are making digital shows, or transforming bad scripts into a web series.”
The filmmaker made the statement at a press meet here on Tuesday for an upcoming music reality show “Dil Hai Hindustani”.
“Creating digital content is appreciable, but we should use the medium powerfully,” he said.
“It is a very powerful medium. The digital media is growing rapidly. Let it grow, and once the potential emerges, I will explore it. But not immediately.”
Though Karan will be judging a music reality show for the first time, he is very popular on television not only because of his celebrity chat show “Koffee With Karan”, but also as judge for reality shows like “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa” and “India’s Got Talent”.
As his chat show is grabbing headlines for celeb comments, Karan believes that this season his guests are a bit more guarded while talking about anyone because the media pays too much attention which might be good for the publicity of the show but not for the celebrities.
