Karan Johar says no to making a 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai' sequel

In a recent development, he has denied that there's a second installment of the 1998 hit in the works

Entertainment Desk November 09, 2018

We love a good sequel. Let it be Luv Ranjan's Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 or Nadeem Beyg's Jawani Phir Nahi Ani 2 - there are some second installments which proved to be better than their first part.

However, we can't say the same about others - case in point: Na Maloom Afraad 2Phir Hera Pheri and Lagay Raho Munna Bhai. So when the news of Karan Johar reportedly working on his directorial blockbuster Kuch Kuch Hota Hai sequel, we were a bit contradicted.


Earlier this year, while hosting his radio show Calling Karan Season 2, one of the listeners asked him about the possibility of the film’s remake and the actors he would rope in.

To this,  the film-maker responded, “If I made Kuch Kuch Hota Hai 2, I would cast Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Janhvi Kapoor in it.”

Johar's statement fuelled rumorus of a possible sequel. However, in a recent development, he has denied that there's a second installment of the 1998 hit in the works.

Responding to a Bollywood Hungama report, the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil film-maker commented, "No."


Johar is currently gearing up to direct Takht. The historical drama, set in the Mughal era, is expected to go on floors in the mid of next year.

The film features an ensemble cast comprising Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal, Janhvi Kapoor, Bhumi Pednekar and Anil Kapoor.

While Ranveer is reportedly playing Mughal emperor Shah Jahan’s eldest son Dara Shikoh, Vicky will supposedly portray his younger brother Aurangzeb.
