Karan Johar says that male stars have more differences among themselves than their female counterparts, and making a two-hero film nowadays is a tough job.
“It’s about two men in the film that is to think of. You can’t afford two heroes and they also don’t want to work with each other. It’s a mess,” Karan said during the panel discussion at the 18th Jio MAMI Mumbai International Film Festival.
When asked about Shetty’s comment that ‘Ram Lakhan’ remake can’t be made as two heroes don’t want to work with each together, Johar said, “You can’t make as two heroes will not work together. The role of Lakhan will be considered as a larger part and the character of Ram will be insecure of Lakhan.”
“I would be like why get into this either make Ram or Lakhan you can’t make both. It’s not age to make multi-starrer films or two-hero films. If two are big stars then you land up doing MRI,” he added.
The filmmaker is now set for his romantic drama Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, which stars Anushka Sharma, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Ranbir Kapoor.
Anushka, who along with Aishwarya accompanied Johar at the session, revealed that she has only one scene with Aishwarya in the movie.
“It was one scene, it’s a powerful scene. These questions are constant (of heroines not getting along),” Anushka said.
Recalling an incident, which happened while she was abroad for an award function, the 28-year-old actress said Aishwarya made her comfortable.
“She was too good to me during an award function abroad. I was called for a party in Mr Amitabh Bachchan’s suite. I was 21 then and was scared. But she was so warm to me. She kept on asking me if I am okay or not. She didn’t need to do that but she did,” the actress said.
While Aishwarya on her part feels it was her duty to make Anushka comfortable.
“She was shy, standing distant and uncertain. It was important to make her at ease and bring her in,” Aishwarya, said.
