Nitesh Kumar Sahoo

Karan Johar is among Bollywood's ace filmmakers who has directed and produced numerous blockbuster movies. Be it his directorial debut Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, family drama Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham or his latest Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, his movies are worth watching. Though he is a successful director and crafts wonders behind the camera, he failed miserably in front of the lenses as an actor. However, KJo still has a 'frustrated actor' inside him and has urged casting directors to cast him. He also is willing to play Ananya Panday's father.

Notably, Karan had cameos in some movies. However, he got the opportunity of full-fledged acting in Bombay Velvet, alongside Ranbir Kapoor. The movie became a disaster and his first opportunity for acting became the last.

Now, KJo has urged the casting directors to consider him for different roles and expressed his readiness to accept the offer of playing any role.

Recently, during an interview with Sucharita Tyagi, KJo said that he has reached a stage where age isn't a barrier and also expressed his willingness to play Ananya's father. He said, “I'll play Ananya's father. I've reached that point where age is not an obstacle. As long as it's a meaty part, a ‘supporting' part, a ‘character artist' part, I'll do it."

Further, he added that he genuinely meant it when he said he wanted to act. 

He disclosed that after Bombay Velvet, he was expecting many opportunities to come his way, but he didn't receive a single offer.

Furthermore, he stated that he often tries to subtly suggest his own name for roles in movies produced under Dharma Productions. He expresses his excitement about certain roles and parts to the directors. But, his excitement leads the directors to change the subject. 

"I really want to act. I feel there's a frustrated actor inside me who wants to come out. I'm not saying this as a joke. Every day I feel it'll (acting offer) come today or tomorrow but it never does. I'm ready to give my time to a film, I'm ready,” he said.
