Shahrukh and Karan had worked together in hit films like Kuch Kuch Hota hai,DDLJ,Kal Ho Naa Ho, Kavi Alvida Kehna and much more.
Shah Rukh Khan may have featured in Karan Johar's co-production, Dear Zindagi (2016), but it has been over seven years since the superstar featured in his directorial.
So when Bollywood's favourite hitmaker duo, who are co-producing the Sidharth Malhotra-Sonakshi Sinha starrer Ittefaq, shared the stage at a media event yesterday, the obvious question was: When will fans see the two reunite for a blockbuster?
Stating that they have been discussing probable film ideas over the past year-and-a-half, Khan said that he is keen to attempt a different genre with Johar.
One that would be a departure from the love sagas that they have done so far. "In our long association, we've done mainly romantic films and family movies. So this time, we'd like to do something more — something different and wild. Whenever both of us are ready, we'll definitely work together," he said.
Khan also revealed his inclination to be part of a thriller. "It's my favourite genre," he gushed before expressing his love for Kevin Spacey's The Usual Suspects (1995).
"Every time I want to watch a thriller, I go back to The Usual Supects despite knowing everything about the film." Johar said that Bollywood hasn't explored the genre enough. "This genre can't work if we include six songs, as it stops being thrilling."
