8 years ago, we celebrated the release of our film, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna. The film boasted of a star studded cast, that included Bollywood Superstars Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan, along with Abhishek Bachchan, Rani Mukerji, Preity Zinta and Kirron Kher. After the success of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, Karan Johar’s third directorial venture touched the topic of extra marital affairs.
Is love about righteousness alone? Was Dev supposed to pull through a terrible marriage? Was Maya expected to compromise because of her marriage in spite of finding love in the form of Dev? Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna explores a journey of love that goes beyond the boundaries of righteousness
You might not agree with the character’s stance in the movie; they break societal barriers. But in the end love triumphs over all. The biggest success of Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna was the fact that the film became the highest overseas grosser when it released, and the love kept growing. Today, as we celebrate the 8thanniversary of its release, all we want to say is keep the love coming and Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna!
