The latest casting news coming out of Mumbai is massive: Karan Johar is apparently set to announce a new film starring one of Bollywood’s most beloved jodis. Hindi film fans should have no difficulty guessing who his stars will beÂ—they’re none other than Shahrukh Khan and Kajol!
Now don’t get too excited just yetÂ—the Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham and Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge couple haven’t signed anything official. Shahrukh is in the middle of filming a Yash Raj film with Katrina Kaif (which, just like Aishwarya Rai’s daughter, still doesn’t have a name) and has also signed to do Farah Khan’s next. And while Kajol’s schedule is wide open, Karan Johar is more than a bit preoccupied with Student of the Year, his latest home production.
What should reassure fans is that SRK himself hinted at the film’s existence. Whether he was trying to steal a bit of Aamir Khan’s weekend thunder (Aamir’s new television project Satyamev Jayate debuted this weekend to smashing results) is up for debate, but it’s good news that Shahrukh Khan himself has made mention of the film. He and Kajol share an amazing on-screen chemistry together and though it’s been a while since they starred together (My Name Is Khan notwithstanding) their pairing is almost certainly destined to be a hit!
