Name a hit Bollywood movie and its sequel is probably in the pipeline. The latest to join the sequel bandwagon is Karan Johar. Karan plans to bring back the Raichand family from his 2001 film, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham in a sequel.
When a friend asked Karan about a sequel to K3G, Karan took it lightly at first considering it financially impractical and most importantly, not a great idea for a film in the present day and age. But when Amitabh Bachchan gave a thumbs up to the idea stating that “sequel was not only possible but also desirable and only Karan can do it”, Karan couldn’t refuse!
Karan admits, “It’s a workable idea. I am no longer averse to it. It would be a bold step if I make it.” He added, “It’s very strange. But all the six main members of the cast are as dear to me now as they were 10 years ago when I made the film. I’m sure they’re as charged about the sequel as I am.”
Amitabh also wrote about the possibility of the story on his blog, “(Karan Johar’s) visit to Goa and the sudden impulse to do a sequel to Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham (sic), for he felt that all the relevant characters were still around and ‘how’. It would be a story on the growth of the brothers and the problems that arise because of their independent understanding and working of the business empire of the father, a split within them and so on …”
