KANK is me all grown up: Johar
Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna examines marriage and infidelity. It will release on Aug 11. Global buyer's lap up KANKindia Updated: Jun 10, 2006 19:27 IST
For someone who is meant to be terribly busy with the post-production work of his film, KaranJohar looks relaxed in his Khar office. Posters of Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna (KANK), featuring Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Rani Mukerji and Preity Zinta dress up the walls of his office.
The film, that examines marriage and infidelity, is set for an August 11 release. But a big song featuring the entire cast is still pending and would be shot in July.
Johar has just left for London where he will launch the music (by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy) of his film on June 12. “Shah Rukh is there on vacation with his family, so he will be present at the music launch,” said Johar. “I will fly directly to Dubai from there for IIFA where the music of my film will be launched on June 16,” he added. Preity, Rani, Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan (who play father and son in the film) will join him there.
Johar is quite excited that Sony Music will be selling CDs of KANK in India for just Rs 99. Of the five tracks and one remix, Johar, who describes KANK as “me all grown up”, lists the title track and Mitwa as his favourites.
From the promos of KANK, it appears to be a much greyer film, lacking the bubblegum flavours associated with a Johar film. “With K3G, my intention was to make a big film, but now my intention was to make a good film. So the stars have to come across as their characters .”
