Karan Johar waiting to see ‘Waiting’ (Movie Snippets)

Mumbai, May 30 (IANS) Filmmaker Karan Johar says he is eager to watch director Anu Menon’s debut release “Waiting”, starring Kalki Koechlin and Naseeruddin Shah.

“Waiting to see ‘Waiting’! I hear Naseer Saab and Kalki Koechlin are phenomenal! I believe it’s reflective and connective slice of life,” Karan tweeted on Sunday.

This is not the first time Kalki and Naseeruddin have worked together. They have earlier shared screen space in Anurag Kashyap’s “That Girl in Yellow Boots”, and in “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara”. But they didn’t have any scenes together in the latter.

“Waiting” narrates the story of the characters of Kalki and Naseeruddin, who develop a bond when they meet in the waiting room of a hospital for their spouses to spring back to life from a state of coma.

“Waiting” also stars Rajat Kapoor and Suhasini Maniratnam.
