I read scripts as cinegoer, not as a filmmaker: Karan Johar

Mumbai, June 2 (IANS) Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar, who has bought the theatrical rights of the Hindi version of southern filmmaker S.S. Rajamouli’s “Baahubali: The Beginning”, says he backs only those movies which touch him as an audience.

The trailer of “Baahubali” was unveiled here on Monday.

Talking about the factors he considers before lending support for a film, he said: “I’m a crazy child of Hindi films… watching them several times and I laugh, cry, sing, dance and get touched with the situations in the film.

“So when I read a script, I look for these same emotions as an audience. If a script touches me or entertains as an audience, I produce such films. I react to scripts not as a filmmaker but as a cinegoer.”

Karan said he loved latest movies “Piku” and “Tanu Weds Manu Returns”.
