‘I can make careers’ says, Karan Johar
Filmmaker Karan Johar today said he can make anybody's career in Bollywood.
“I can make <g data-gr-id="44">cake</g>...I can also make careers,” Karan said at a press conference. Karan has made careers of several budding directors and actors like Karan Malhotra, Punit Malhotra, Shakun Batra, Alia Bhatt, Siddharth Malhotra, Varun Dhawan and others.
The filmmaker and Alia will now be seen as co-curators of Viacom18’s English entertainment channel ‘Colors Infinity’. Both of them have curated shows for the channel, which span across genres like drama, superheroes, comedy, fantasy, <g data-gr-id="34">crime</g> and thrillers.
There will be reality shows as well with some of the world's largest shows across dancing, cooking, magic, singing and others. Moving towards a new horizon in English Entertainment on Indian Television, the soon to be launched Colors Infinity is all set to break new ground by ushering in the growing international trend of watching three continuous episodes of globally applauded narratives back-to-back. Both Karan and Alia are big fans of English shows and they quickly jumped at the idea of being curators for the channel.
“The channel has amazing content. We both are excited to be part of it,” Alia said. “I have always enjoyed watching television. I enjoy being on TV,” Karan said. So will he do daily soaps, Karan jokingly says, “I am not going to daily soaps....that might be pushing a lot. I know I am known to do everything. But you never know I might end up doing Balika Vadhu (a popular show on Colors channel).”
The network has entered into major multi-year deals with Warner Bros. International Television Distribution, NBC Universal, Sony Pictures Television, BBC and Endemol Shine among others.
There will be first-time India premiere of new shows, including the critically-acclaimed and <g data-gr-id="41">multi </g><g data-gr-id="42"><g data-gr-id="41">award</g> winning</g> series like Fargo, Orange is the new Black, The Flash, Better call Saul and others.
