Karan Johar inspired to plan the sequel to ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ | Hindi Movie News

Karan Johar, whose 1998 directorial debut ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai‘, featuring Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and Rani Mukerji, completes 20 years in October, is marking the milestone with plans for a sequel. The filmmaker relayed the news during a guest appearance on Madhuri Dixit’s dance reality show, ‘ Dance Deewane’, along with Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter, the leads of his upcoming production, ‘Dhadak’. Incidentally, the film’ director, Shashank Khaitan, is a cojudge on the show’s panel, alongside Madhuri and choreographer Tushar Kalia.

Describing the episode, which was filmed on Tuesday, as a trip down memory lane, a source from the show’s set informs, “Karan made his entry emulating Shah Rukh Khan’s introduction scene from ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham‘, with Tushar and Shashank welcoming him with an ‘aarti ki thali’, a la Jaya Bachchan in the family drama. Soon after, two young contestants – Shaurya and Alok – performed an act to celebrate 20 years of his directorial debut, recreating some memorable moments from the film. The 46-year-old KJo was left teary-eyed by the end of the performance and remarked that it makes him feel “old”. He took everyone by surprise by confessing that the act had inspired him to think of a sequel and joked that he might even consider casting Shaurya and Alok in it.”

While everyone on set was curious to know more, the filmmaker kept his plans under wraps, going on to shake a leg on ‘Zingaat’ with Madhuri instead. ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ revolved around SRK’s Rahul, Kajol’s Anjali and Rani’s Tina and narrated the story of college best friends.
