Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham– it is all about loving your parents. This movie came out in 2001, 17 years have passed by and still, this movie is among our favorites. I am sure that we all have the dialogues memorized by now. Remember the movie Bin Roye starring Mahira Khan and Humayun Saeed, which later on was aired as a drama? This idea of turning a movie into a drama has proven to be popular across the border as well. Karan Johar’s Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham is being adapted into a soap opera by none other than Ekta Kapoor.
She has taken a lot of burden on her shoulders if one thinks about it as this movie has set a certain bar and one mistake can lead to many angry fans. The cast originally in the movie are all top notch actors of Bollywood, who’ll replace these icons in the drama. According to a Mumbai Mirror report, a source is saying, “Bijoy Anand, who played Kajol’s wayward fiance in the 1998 romcom Pyaar Toh Hona Hi Tha, has been cast to play Amitabh Bachchan’s patriarch, Yashvardhan Raichand, while Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi actress Erica Fernandes is in talks to play either Kajol’s talkative Anjali or her younger sister, Pooja (popularised by Kareena as ‘Poo’). The part will be finalized after a look test.” We hope whoever is chosen to play the Poo part does justice to that sassy attitude played by Kareena Kapoor.
Ekta Kapoor’s tweet gives us a hint that maybe she has added a twist of her own in this drama.
A family soap after years !!! Mostly done love stories recently with d backdrop of family!! This soap will air on SONY …a family that eats together stays together NOOOO a family that accepts each other stays together

Karan Johar and Ekta Kapoor have been spotted out on a date night. Was it just a friends catch up affair or discussion on the upcoming project?
A Bollywoodlife report states a source as saying, “Though not an official adaption, the project will have the feel and look of the medieval drama.”
The drama’s title will be ‘Dil hi toh hai’ and we cannot wait to see a recreation of Bollywood’s blockbuster film with a twist of its own!
Twitter at such events, cannot keep calm.
