Karan Johar is known for making family oriented film. His films are totally of a ‘U’ category and the family can watch it together. He is one director who looks smart, is handsome, has all the qualities to be a hero on the silver screen and still he has never given acting any preference in life.
All that Karan wants to do is make films. When he has not acted in his own films, how would he make an appearance in someone else’s film? He had got one such offer from another film maker Vishal Bharadwaj. In Vishal Bhardwaj's ‘Saat Khoon Maaf’ Priyanka Chopra plays the lead role. She has seven husbands in the film whom she kills one by one.
For one of the hubby’s role in this film, Vishal Bhardwaj had offered the role to Karan Johar. He wanted Karan to play the role of a sex-manic husband who also is a ‘great’ wife-beater. However, Vishal could not convey his feeling to KJo directly. So, he wanted Priyanka Chopra to talk to him on his behalf.
Priyanka went ahead. But Karan was flabbergasted at the offer of acting in ‘Saat Khoon Maaf’ and that too in a role of a sex-maniac. He instantly asked Piggy Chops from which angle did he look like a wife-beater (right Karan, you are so cool)?
When Karan Johar refused the role, only then Vishal cast Irrfan Khan for the same.
