- Karan had said he'd welcome Kangana 'lovingly and respectfully'
- Karan Johar seems to be slowly warming up to me: Kangana
- The show goes on air from Saturday with Priyanka Chopra as first guest
See pictures of Kangana getting ready to shoot India's Next Superstar with Karan Johar.
Before shooting for the episode Kangana told Mumbai Mirror: "I am looking forward to being on the show. It is a professional commitment for which I'm being paid. What is delightful is that Karan is okay with doing the show with me and seems to be slowly warming up to me."
India's Next Superstar is talent hunt show, the winner of which will get a role in one of Karan Johar or Rohit Shetty's film. The show's tagline is Na khandaan, na sifarish, which Kangana told Mumbai Mirror described her perfectly. "I am the epitome of the tagline being a self-made woman and actress myself, which is precisely why the channel wants me.I have not gone back on my ideology. I stick to what I believe in," she said.
At the time of the show's announcement, the Internet thought this reality show is Karan Johar's way of giving his image ('flagbearer of nepotism,' as Kangana had said last year) a 'makeover.' But KJo told PTI: "I don't think this tagline was an answer from my side to anything. Lot of people want to be part of the entertainment industry but it is difficult to find a platform. We are providing this platform to all those who are talented."
India's Next Superstar will go on air from Saturday and the first guest of the show will be Priyanka Chopra.
