The multi-starrer venture was written and directed by Karan Johar while it was produced by his uncle Yash Johar. The family drama narrates the story of a man, who is the adopted older son of a rich couple. However, he was banished by his father as he decides to marry the love of his life, who belonged to a middle-class family. Years later, his younger brother Rohan takes up the initiative to reunite the families. The film emerged as a major commercial success, both domestically and internationally, with a lifetime gross of ₹1.36 billion at the worldwide box office. It was the highest-grossing Indian film ever until its record was broken by Johar's next directorial, 'Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna' (2006).
Meanwhile, on the work front, Karan has a number of films in the pipeline for release. Along with that, he will also be producing' Kesari', 'Kalank', 'Student of the Year 2' and 'Brahmastra' which are slated for a 2019 release.
