Karan Johar: 'I am the biggest liability to Dharma Productions'

Filmmaker Karan Johar is known for his larger than life films and lavish sets and yet, the Dharma dude had to rein in himself while making a film for Bombay Talkies, a collection of four short films made to celebrate 100 years of Indian cinema.

Talking about working under the challenges of a limited budget, Karan quipped, “We have our own style of film making, but we didn't have much budget for Bombay Talkies. First of all, I have never made a film under budget...I am the biggest liability to Dharma Productions! This is for the first time that I have to work under a budget of Rs. 1.5 crores and it was a difficult process. We consciously made an effort to make it within the budget.”

Bombay Talkies includes films made by other filmmakers such as Dibakar Banerjee, Anurag Kashyap and Zoya Akhtar.
