Filmmaker Karan Johar is now stepping into the genre of horror after treating cinema lovers with romantic films. On Friday, he took to Twitter to announce that his Dharma Productions is now "anchoring" a horror film.
He shared a poster which read, "Dharma Productions is anchoring a new franchise of fear. November 15, 2019."
He captioned the poster: "Film announcement on Monday! Stay tuned! Apoorva Mehta18, Shashank Khaitan Dharma Movies."
Other details related to the project are still under wraps.
Recently, the filmmaker made headlines when on his birthday, designer Prabal Gurung had posted a picture with the director, in which the latter has his arms wrapped around the designer. Prabal who has now deleted the post captioned the picture as "Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya. Happy birthday KJo."

Gurung later denied rumours about having a "romantic relationship" with the filmmaker. He released a statement on Twitter clarifying that Karan is just his "dearest friend".
