Karan Johar’s wishlist for ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ reboot: Ranveer, Alia, Janhvi

Mumbai, Aug 17 (IANS) Karan Johar has no immediate plans to work on a “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai” reboot, but the filmmaker says Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt and Janhvi Kapoor would be on his wishlist if he decides to bring back the love story.

“On my wishlist would be Ranveer Singh as Rahul. He has that mad intensity as Shah Rukh Khan. Alia Bhatt as Anjali. She has the spunk and Janhvi Kapoor as Tina because she has the poise and balance of the part,” said Johar, during an audience interaction at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne, which concludes on August 17.

Released in 1998, “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai” narrated love story of three friends — Rahul Khanna (Shah Rukh), Tina (Rani Mukerji) and Anjali (Kajol). It also featured Salman Khan in a special role. The film’s ever-green dialogues and music still holds a special place in the hearts of film buffs.

Looking back at the casting process, Karan said: “I was ecstatic to meet SRK. Kajol and he had promised that they would work my first film. So, I remember going to meet him and I had no script, and just had a scene in my mind, which I narrated to him. He bought into my bullsh*t! I told him if you like this one scene then I will narrate the entire film to you, which was completely a lie… Tabu, Urmila (Urmila Matondkar), Aishwarya (Aishwarya Rai) turned me down, and Ash was the only one who was polite to call me back. It took months to cast for Rani’s part after Aditya Chopra recommended her.”

Mumbai, Sep 14 (IANS) Legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar’s views on Internet sensation Ranu Mondal did not go down well with a section of social media users, but it seems the comments have not affected the latter as she considers “Lataji her senior”.

“Lataji ki umar ke hisab se mai choti thi, hu aur aage ja kar bhi rahungi.. Bachpan se unka awaz pasand hai. (As far as age is concerned, I am younger to her and will always remain her junior. I have loved Lataji’s voice since childhood),” Ranu Mondal told Navbharat Times.

Ranu Mondal, who has now recorded three tracks for Bollywood singer-composer Himesh Reshammiya, became an overnight social media sensation after a video of her singing Lata Mangeshkar’s soulful number “Ek pyaar ka nagma hai” at Ranaghat railway platform went viral on the Internet.

When Lata Mangeshkar was asked about Ranu Mondal, she expressed happiness but with reservations.”Agar mere naam aur kaam se kissiko bhala hota hai toh main apne-aap ko khush-kismat samajhti hoon (If anyone gets benefited by my name and work then I feel fortunate).

“But I also feel imitation is not a reliable and durable companion for success. By singing my songs or Kishoreda’s (Kumar), or (Mohd) Rafi Saab’s, or Mukesh Bhaiyya or Asha’s (Bhosle) numbers, aspiring singers can get short-term attention,” Lata Mangeshkar added.

Mumbai, Sep 14 Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor, who has come out with a digital property called “Arjun Recommends”, said there is no room for bad content and for mediocrity as people are exposed to the best of cinema and also documentaries on OTT platforms.

“I’m extremely excited to be an actor living and working in today’s time. We are in the middle of a drastic change for the better and we should celebrate that. There is no room for bad content and definitely no room for mediocrity as people are exposed to the best of cinema, best of documentaries on the OTT,” Arjun said.

The “India’s Most Wanted” star said that the ride of OTT platforms has changed the game.

“If you see in the last couple of years, the quality of theatricals has become better. I do feel that we are witnessing the best period of disruption where each medium is pushing the other to do better, to produce content that stands out and are clutter-breaking. Today, truly content is king and it is the only thing that matters,” he said.

Arjun said that he would anyway prefer to sit at home and discover great shows and movies and binge on them than going out for a party.

“Watching disruptive, innovative content can expand one’s thinking about the kind of stuff audiences are watching in their homes. It can prepare us with information on what kind of films to make so that people feel the urge to come to the theatres,” he added

He also shared his vision for his social media property.

“‘Arjun Recommends’ is my attempt to bring together like-minded people who love to watch something good and clutter-breaking. This digital property is allowing me to engage with people from across India and understand from them what works,” he said.
