Karan Johar geared up for a K3G sequel

Karan Johar geared up for a K3G sequel
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..

KBC taking place and there are the warm and affectionate evenings of family and relatives BigB



Jalsa , Mumbai   July  21/22 ,  2011        Thu/ Fri  1 : 43 AM
There are the beginnings of the game show KBC taking place and there are the warm and affectionate evenings of family and relatives. Both are earnest, affectionate and enduring. KBC begins its round for perhaps the 5th time on the 15th of August and the family and relatives began their togetherness by late evening. The joy of sharing episodes of the past, the years gone by, events and important get togethers or shared occasions compares beautifully with the recollections of the past episodes on KBC.
Fresh additions to the game, to make it more viewer friendly and participative are discussed and executed. So also the fun and frolic of the past moments shared with the relatives, comes up. The viewing of old footage of the family, the identification of the years gone by, the factor of passing age, the emotions expressed as we see our loved and dear ones hale and hearty mixing and mingling with their usual gusto, now gone forever … leaving us bereft of the emotion that is generally associated with such moments. A wedding, a function of personal recollection and on …
The KBC is no less. The years gone by the recounting of some prominent moments. Victories, defeats and then the winnings and the exceptional encounters with committed performers, all form such a glorious palette. The fresh ideas and inventions that bring the viewers closer home, coincides with the attempts that all relative family meetings are all about.
Maybe I just force this comparison on my readers, but I have not deliberately thought this one out. Matter seems to flow as we write and this then brings us closer home to the fact that, too much rehearsing takes away rather than bring us together . With family the informality and the care free air that prevails is indeed quite unique. So too with the game show - discomforting, easy and beneficial.
Moot point is, that if the two were to meet, we would have another unique situation. Family participates alongside during broadcasts of KBC. It is the one game show that has the capacity to do so. And if KBC has the capacity to bring all together to share and observe to perhaps join in, then all fingers point to a rather successful evening.
I look forward to the time when we shall be able to execute this and feel for ourselves the importance of coming together, for a cause that can become sincerely educative and knowledge boosted.
At the opening of a wellness center operated by my trainer, I discover that the usage of weights and other heavy equipment is not really a necessity. The same could be done through elastic ropes hung on to bars that are designed to hold over 600 kg. There are some very normal and casual modes of exercise which when performed, take care not just of the muscles in the system but also an overall toning up, with a bit of yoga thrown in. The entire concept of weights and treadmills and other sorts has been or will be eliminated soon and we would have to move up with the times. This procedure is good, but am not so sure if it can be result oriented.
So also then, to those that attempted to do what most of us did and still do … move aimlessly  towards the goal without raising any suspicion. Were we to we would all lose or be asked to lose. Everyman is important in this war. The war between ourselves and the selves of others. In today’s fast ranged and fast moving facilities, must be admired for the persistency of keeping the audience adhesive like to the screens. Tv gets bigger by the moment. Its reach and influence has become monstrous. It is today changing decisions, erecting bodies that investigate, because a certain channel has discovered a smile and a look of suspicious and intrigue, which when examined carefully shall bring result.
I must do well in the preparations for the Tv for KBC .. and I must get together the family in general. Not necessarily in that order, but order all the same. Disciplined order is the command of the day. And if ever I were to be asked whether I would enroll, for the sake of country and life of those entrapped, …
I would say I am an Indian first born and brought up without ever having to give in to the authorities that ask for clarification on my designation … my birth designation .. i will not, because I have believed under it and am the happiest that I did …
Love
Amitabh Bachchan
