The filmmaker is now all set for the release of Badrinath ki Dulhania, produced by his banner Dharma production.
The film is the second in the Dulhania franchise with 2014 romantic-comedy Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania being the first one.
Both the films feature Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles.
Though the first part saw Varun in his most entertaining avatar, Johar finds the 29-year-old actor "more entertaining" in the new movie.
Badrinath ki Dulhania will hit the theatres on March 10.
