KJo bewildered by the offer for ‘Saat Khoon Maaf’

Vishal Bhardwaj offered Bollywood director Karan Johar the role of a sex manic and wife-beater husband of Priyanka Chopra in ‘Saat Khoon Maaf’. KJo was bewildered to get such an offer and said, “From what angle do I look like a wife-beater? And how could I enact a scene making love to Priyanka Chopra! And that too as a sex maniac! There is no way I could do this.”
News has it that KJo was horrified at the character he was offered to play, but his horror did not stop Irrfan Khan from playing that role! It is believed that had Karan been a part of the film, it would have been the most unusual casting.
Vishal Bhardwaj did not talk to Karan directly but sent feelers through Piggie Chops. According to sources “Vishal requested his heroine to put in a word. She promptly did. As soon as Karan heard about the casting offer, he was mighty amused initially. But then wondered how on earth he could essay a wife beater!”
