Mumbai: Ten years back Karan Johar had made a star-studded family drama and called it 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham'. And now the director is all geared up to make a sequel to the film with a little persuasion from Amitabh Bachchan.
Karan Johar intends to get the original cast of Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham for the sequel too. But will Shah Rukh and Amitabh be ready to share screen space again? There has been an evident cold war brewing between the duo since last year and they've been vying to grab media attention ever since. Big B had put up the falling TRP listings of SRK's TV show on his blog. On the other hand Shah Rukh announced his world tour, 'Temptations Reloaded' when the Bachchans were all set to commence their global musical tour called 'The Unforgettables'.
Secondly, will Hrithik be cheerful to play lover boy to Kareena after a gap of eight years? The two had purposely avoided acting together due to rumours of their alleged relationship during the filming of some of their films. They were last seen together in 'Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon'(2003). Recently, Kareena even refused to do a cameo in Hrithik's 'Agneepath' remake.
Lastly will Kajol take a break from motherhood and leave her new baby to get into films again? Guess only time will tell.
Johar announces to a tabloid that Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham 2 is a workable idea and it would indeed be a bold step to make the film. The director is pretty confident that he would be able to convince his actors to come together again. While Amitabh Bachchan is already on board the other actors have still to give their nod.
The original movie about an adopted son who is estranged from his father touched the hearts of the Indian audience. The movie was a blockbuster in India and was termed a big hit overseas as well. 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham' was easily the sixth highest grosser worldwide in 2001.
The sequel is rumoured to be another family saga giving the conflict between two brothers more prominence. Amitabh Bachchan spoke about seeing the legacy of the Raichand family going ahead in his blogs. He revealed the angle the film would supposedly take. "It would be a story on the growth of the brothers and the problems that arise because of their independent understanding and working of the business empire of the father, a split within them and so on..
