Do contestants try to impress Karan Johar during reality shows ?

Apart from being one of the most prominent filmmaker and director in Bollywood, Karan Johar is also known for judging several reality shows. Very soon he'll be seen as a judge on season 10 of 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa' alongside Madhuri Dixit and Nora Fatehi. During a recent interview with The Indian Express, Karan was asked whether the contestants ever try to impress him in order to bag a Dharma project.

The filmmaker replied, "Aisa nahi hua hai (It hasn’t happened). I think everybody is so stressed about their performance, that impressing me is the least of their problem. Everyone is trying to get their steps and expressions right. Also, for me, Madhuri Dixit or even Nora Fatehi, we try to make them as comfortable for everybody. We are all part of one family.”

Further talking about how he sees himself as a judge, Karan said, "I am much more judgmental than I am allowed to be. Sometimes they have to tell me to calm down on my judgments. Especially when it comes to Jhalak, everyone is a celebrity and thus quite sensitive and vulnerable. I have to sugar-coat myself extra to make my point at times.”
