Karan Johar finds it tough to write love stories

Director and producer Karan Johar, who is awaiting the release of Hindi romantic comedy Hasee Toh Phasee, is known for his love stories. But he now finds it very difficult to pen them down.

"I actually find it very difficult to write love stories anymore. I think I have lost that innocence which I had when I wrote Kuch Kuch Hota Hai or Kal Ho Naa Ho. I feel the love scenes that I write are synthetic and very artificial," Karan told IBNLive.

The filmmaker's Dharma Productions will be co-producing the upcoming Hasee Toh Phasee with Anurag Kashyap's Phantom Production and producers Vikas Behl, Vikramadtya Motwane and Madhu Mantena.

"It's a heady combo. Phantom Production's quirkiness and Dharma's emotions make a grand collaboration and no better script could justify this combination of producers better than Hasee Toh Phasee.

"It's a new way forward. This may be new to Indian entertainment but actually in the West, 100 people can come together for a film.

"I am very greedy about the script and content. If somebody brings a great screenplay, it doesn't matter how many names are associated with the project," said Karan, commenting on the number of producers for this film.

Hasee Toh Phasee, which also stars Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra, will hit the big screen on Feb 7.
