After directing films that deal with serious issues like, ‘My Name is Khan’, ‘Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna’ etc, Karan Johar is finally returning to the kind of films that he does best. His fans and Bollywood lovers will all agree that no one could make another ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ like Karan did. So, to the sheer delight of all his fans, this famous director is returning with a film that is of the same genre as his above mentioned one.
The film will be the debut of three new faces in Bollywood. They are: Alia Bhatt, who is he daughter of the well-known filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, Siddharth Malhotra who is a newcomer and Varun Dhawan, who is the son of the reputed David Dhawan. Both the boys in the cast of the film already have experience in working with Karan as they were both assistant directors in his film ‘My Name is Khan’, starring Shah Rukh Khan.
Coming to the story of this much hyped film, it is based on the lives of three college students. Karan Johar assures that it will be a film filled with laughter and joy and excitement. Not only will this film be the kind that today’s youth will easily identify with, but it will also have the spirit and enthusiasm of an outing or a holiday.
KJo says that, stepping away from the kind of serious films that he has been making recently, this film is will be one that is ‘happy go lucky’ in every sense. There will be a lot of song and dance sequences too. Noting the fact that Vishal-Shekhar will be giving the music for this film, the audience will be expecting nothing but the best from them.
The film has a whole range of surprises lined up with respect to the cast as well. Even though this is Karan’s first film where the “Badshah’ of Bollywood would not be playing the male lead, it does not mean that we won’t see him in the film at all. Recent news has it that Shah Rukh Khan will be seen in a small role or cameo in this film. Moreover, Rishi Kapoor will also be playing a rather unconventional role of a gay man in the film. When asked about it, the versatile actor, who has recently outdone himself in a negative character in ‘Agneepath’, stated that he cannot say no to Karan. Looks like Rishi Kapoor is finally getting those unconventional and challenging roles that he wanted.
