On the 12th anniversary of family ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham…’, director Karan Johar and lead actor Shah Rukh Khan remember the multi-starrer with fond memories. Karan, who wrote and directed the film, said it was his late father Yash Johar’s one of the most favorite movies. Karan posted on Twitter, “12 years of K3G (‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham…’). My dad’s favorite movie… He always cried when he saw it and said Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan reminded him of his dad and him.”
The movie, which was specifically made to evoke nostalgia among the expatriate Indian audiences, featured an eclectic cast including Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Farida Jalal, Kajol, Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor where Rani Mukerji had also made a guest appearance in the film. Shah Rukh, who played Bachchan’s adopted son in the movie, tweeted, “This one has a big thank you list… Amit ji, Jaya ji, Hrithik, Kareena, Kajol, Yashji, Faridaji, Grannies, fainting Karan & all phew! K3G a dozen years.”
The film was a smashing hit not only in India but also overseas because of the presence of Bollywood A-listers, foot-tapping songs and a strong story line.
