I don't judge talent, I only judge impact: Karan Johar

Mumbai, Jan 8 : Filmmaker Karan Johar, who is on board to judge the fifth season of reality TV show "India's Got Talent", believes he cannot pass a judgement on anyone's talent as long as he is not better at it himself. So, he only shares his "creative opinion" on the impact of contestants' performances.

"I don't judge, I only offer opinion. I think 'judgemental' and 'judge' are harsher terms that we have to live with. Who am I to judge a dancer (when) I am not a dancer, or who am I to judge a singer (when) I am not a singer," Karan said while speaking to IANS here.

"I don't judge but I offer my creative opinion as a director. I judge impact, I don't judge talent. For me, to judge the talent, I have to be better at that myself. So all I can judge is stage impact."

On "India's Got Talent", Karan will be joined on the judges panel by actors Kirron Kher and Malaika Arora Khan. The show will be premiered on Colors Jan 11.

Karan says nothing is scripted in a show like "India's Got Talent", where people from all cultures, backgrounds and age groups participate and showcase their myriad talents.

"It is all real. I have never been given a single line to say. I just sit there and say whatever comes to my head and heart. The emotions are there in the back stories of these don't have to script them."

"You don't have to script their screenplay, their lives are fascinating...some are heartbreaking and how can you script anything that has so many varied cultures, so many stories and a series of obstacles that they have combatted," asked the 41-year-old.
