Karan Johar has claimed that his romantic comedies are challenging conventions of the genre.

The Dharma Films producer's next film Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu will star Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor.

He told The Times of India: "While it was special for me to begin the year with a remake of my father's film Agneepath, Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu broke the myth about romcoms having a happy ending.

"It was bittersweet and unusual. With Student of the Year, we launched three fresh faces for the first time. The idea is to launch many more films and expand our base."

Johar added: "First up is Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani with Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone, followed by 2 States with Arjun Kapoor. It is our first co-production with Sajid Nadiadwala.

"Then, there's Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor's film by Punit Malhotra. There's also a big-budget film to be directed by Karan Malhotra, who made Agneepath. I will start work on my directorial venture at the end of next year, after which we have another film by Rohit Shetty.

"In the next two years, there will be a big move forward. We may move to a bigger studio space and have more collaborations as far as production is concerned. The road ahead looks exciting."


The filmmaker admitted recently that he is unlikely to make an action film because he prefers films about relationships.

In October, he said that he had wanted to challenge himself by casting newcomers in his most recent film Student of the Year.
