Kuch Kuch Hota Hai etched a place in the heart of every 90s kid and there is no going back. Even when the Shah Rukh Khan starrer completed 20 years, the chatter about its sequel or a remake fails to fade away.
Recently Karan Johar who marked his entry to Bollywood as a director with the film addressed the ever-going speculations at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM) 2019 and made his pick for the millenials he would want to feature if he ever decides to revisit the film.
Karan Johar held a special screening of his debut film, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), at the festival to mark the milestone where he revealed that he would want Ranveer Singh to get into the shoes of Shah Rukh Khan as the casanova Rahul. According to Karan, Ranveer has the mad intensity that the character needs.
For Kajol's Anjali he wanted his favourite disciple Alia Bhatt as Anjali as according to the filmmaker she has the spunk and Janhvi Kapoor as Tina because she has the poise required for the part.
Coincidentally though, the trio Ranveer-Alia and Janhvi are coming together for Kran's next directorial, a period drama set during the Mughal era, titled Takht.
At the event, Johar also shed light on how he managed to get Khan on board despite not having a script of the 1998 romantic drama. "I remembering going to meet him — I had no script whatsoever and had only a scene in my mind. I narrated it to Shah Rukh, telling him that if you like this scene, then I will narrate the entire film to you. That was obviously a lie."
All we can do is wait and watch if a reprise to the cult 90s romance featuring the lethal trio happens anytime soon.
