Eighteen years in the past, on the identical day (December 14) an iconic movie had hit the theatres and had taken all the nation by storm. We’re speaking about none aside from Karan Johar’s Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, which casted Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Jaya Bachchan, Kajol, Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor Khan within the lead roles.
But do you know that when Karan Johar had mentioned that he won’t ever make one other Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham? He had instructed Filmfare, “My first film, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, was a feel-good movie, which did well too. Everyone was very happy because here was a young filmmaker who’d made a good, successful movie. I was accepted immediately.”
“Then came Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. Even though it was a huge box-office success, people felt it had nothing new to offer, that it didn’t speak a new language. I admit there was nothing new in K3G. It was a mainstream family entertainer with the usual songs and dances that make everyone all over the country happy. Let me make it clear that I’m not taking up for what I made.”
In the identical interview, Karan had additionally asserted that though the movie was a blockbuster, it had its personal faults. Karan had additional mentioned that he won’t ever make one other K3G and had mentioned, “I have no right to make the same kind of feel-good film again. I should be slapped… no, I should be kicked if I make another crying, singing, dancing, happy movie.”
Interestingly, Karan really stored his phrases and did not make the identical household drama!
