The filmmaker, who gave us an unconventional film like Masaan, is all set to go commercial now. Neeraj Ghaywan will now be roped in for a film that will be produced by Karan Johar under his banner Dharma Productions. Although there have been no details on the film, we hear that a discussion is on between the two of them for a collaboration.
Sources have confirmed the development saying, “Karan Johar is indeed planning on getting Neeraj Ghaywan on board for a film that he will be producing. Although they are staying silent about all the details, the discussion is on the final stage. Karan was quite impressed with Neeraj’s work in Masaan and thinks he is apt for directing his next venture.”
An official announcement is expected to be made soon. The film is expected to be in the initial stages and the casting is still under way. The title too is yet to be finalized.
