Karan pays tribute to father Yash Johar with 'Dostana'

Mumbai, Feb 7 (IANS) Filmmaker Karan Johar's new movie is a tribute to his late father Yash Johar. He has decided to name his new production, 'Dostana', after the 1980 blockbuster of the same name made by his father Yash Johar.

The story is set in Miami and Karan's assistant Tarun Mansukhani will start shooting it this summer. Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham and Priyanka Chopra lead the glamorous cast.Karan Johar

Commenting on the title of the movie, Karan told IANS: 'For a long time, we had no title for Tarun Mansukhani's brilliant script. It is funny, sassy and hilarious. And it's also about friendship between these two guys played by Abhishek and John.

'So, I don't know why it took us so long to hit on the right title. 'Dostana', it is. I was waiting for Tarun to return from location-scouting before firming up the title.'

Karan is nostalgic about the title.

'You know, when my father produced 'Dostana' in 1980, he was going through hard times, but all the three principal actors Amit uncle (Amitabh Bachchan), Shatrughan Sinha and Zeenat Aman co-operated. That's how the film was made.'

So is the new 'Dostana' a love triangle like the old one?

'Well, yes and no. Though it's a love story, there is a never-before twist in the tale. All I can say on record is that we've never had a love triangle like 'Dostana' before. And you'll never see Abhishek and John playing something like this again,' Karan said.

He is also relieved that the title has not landed him in trouble.

'For 'Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna' I had to ask Aroona Irani to lend me the title because she starred in the song sung by Kishore Kumar in the movie 'Chalte Chalte'. She sweetly gave me the title in exchange for a kiss. For 'Dostana', I had to kiss nobody except my father's memory.'
