Shah Rukh's 'Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa' to be remade?
Back in the 1990s, Shah Rukh was the poster boy of romance in Bollywood. He did countless successful romantic flicks, and became a household name with them. One film that is particularly special for SRK and his fans is the 1994 classic Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa. And now, rumor has it that the Kundan Shah film might get remade. Here are the details.
A remake of the film is on the cards
If sources are to go by, Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa will soon be remade into a film or series for the web. "SRK and his team might make Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa again for the web. There are also talks about making a digital series on the same plotline as the movie. A popular OTT platform has also shown keen interest," reveals a source.
'KHKN' is quite special for Shah Rukh
Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa has always been close to King Khan's heart. He has gone on record to say that it is his all-time favorite film. Not just that, the 53-year-old superstar has also bought the film's rights under his production banner, Red Chillies Entertainment.
The film was an unconventional, coming-of-age romantic drama
Now widely considered as a cult classic, Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa was a coming-of-age, romantic drama. The film revolved around the life of a middle-class man who desperately pursues a girl, despite her disinterest. It is widely praised for its portrayal of an unconventional "hero" and Shah Rukh's performance. It also won two Filmfare awards, viz. Critics Award for Best Film, Best Actor.
Meanwhile, SRK is currently taking some time off
Meanwhile, on the work front, SRK's last silver screen outing was Aanand L. Rai directorial Zero. The film revolved around the extraordinary journey of Bauua Singh (SRK), a dwarf from a small town, who falls in love with a scientist suffering from cerebral palsy. However, the film turned out to be a debacle, and Shah Rukh has not signed any film since then.
For those fans who can't wait, here's some good news
But, for those fans who can't wait, here is some good news. Shah Rukh is all set to appear on the American talk show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman. Interestingly, SRK will be the first Indian celebrity to be featured on the said show, which has previously hosted personalities like Barack Obama, George Clooney, and Malala Yousafzai, among others.
