Shakun Batra to direct a drama film for Karan Johar?

Shakun Batra, who made his debut as a director with Karan Johar's home production -- 'Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu' -- is all set to wield the megaphone again for a drama film.

Earlier, Shakun started worked as an assistant director in films like 'Rock On', 'Jaane Tu..Ya Jaane Na'. For his debut he brought together the unusual pair of Kareena Kapoor and Imran Khan. The film produced by Dharma Productions was a hit.

"I have a three film contract with Dharma Productions. I would be making two-three films for them. I am toying with few ideas but nothing is concrete yet. I have two-three ideas that are something new and different," Shakun told PTI.

"It won't be like a romantic film. It won't be out-an-out romantic-comedy film. All the three ideas have one thing - drama, they deal with drama. They talk about day-to-day human things. All I can say is I am working towards the ideas that I have in my mind," he said.

However Shakun clarifies that he is not going to make a heavy dose film, with social issues. "Scripting takes 6-8 months, then finding actors. So my next film will happen only next year," he said. Presently, Shakun is busy working for a short film. "Currently I am working with Karan on a short film. I can't talk about it. Next few months I will be occupied with this," he said.
