The iconic ‘Kuch Kuch Hota’ tune is sure to take you on a nostalgic trip, evoking memories of the past even today. It has been almost two decades since Karan Johar made his directorial debut with the Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and Rani Mukerji starrer and the story about love and friendship touched the hearts of millions. Needless to say, fans are eagerly awaiting a sequel to the film which was a trendsetter in every way.

Echoing the sentiments of fans world over, Karan was asked about ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai 2’ during his radio show titled ‘Calling Karan’ where he imparts words of wisdom and relationship advice to those reeling with problems in their love life. In response, the filmmaker said, "If I made Kuch Kuch Hota Hai 2, I would cast Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Janhvi Kapoor in it."

Back in 2017, while talking to PTI, Karan had said, "I was 24 when I wrote that film. But I can't write the same film now. When I see Kuch Kuch Hota Hai today or Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham I myself wonder, 'Why did I write this, how did I write this, from where these thoughts came to my mind?” ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ which released in 1998 also starred Sana Saeed, Anupam Kher, Reema Lagoo, and Farida Jala.

Meanwhile, during the rapid-fire segment of his radio show recently, Karan Johar was asked to rate the chemistry between ‘Dhadak’ stars Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter. In response to this Karan Johar said, “They have terrific chemistry. They’re always laughing at jokes that nobody else understands. They complete each other’s sentences and they are amazing on screen. So 10 on 10.” Given that he is floored by the chemistry between Janhvi and Ishaan, we wonder if Karan would consider Ishaan Khatter to play the role portrayed by Salman Khan in ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ if the sequel materialises.

On the work front, Janhvi Kapoor will next be seen in the Karan Johar directorial ‘Takht’. The film which also stars Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar among others is slated for a 2020 release.
