"I'd love to. I'd love to have a kind of a collaboration of Russia and India. As you know, Russian audience has always been given Indians so much love, like with [Indian film actor] Raj Kapur. And it would be wonderful to come to Russia, shoot in Russia. And I look forward to any kind of collaboration and facility offered for our cinema, so we can come to Russia and do some great work," Johar said on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos.
"Good story will work anyway in any language, and I look forward to the possibility of something like this," he said, when asked whether he wanted to shoot something about the Russian president, adding that he would like to collaborate with Russian colleagues.
The film director added that he would like to use Russian classics for inspiration while screenwriting.
"I haven't done a lot of reading of Russian classics, but I look forward to finding out. Because our story development team is looking forward to finding new energy and new stories," Johar added.
Johar is one of the most successful film directors and producers in India. He heads Mumbai-based Dharma Productions.
