When it comes to a family film, one is always doubtful about its treatment. There are questions around whether it would end up taking the much visited route, whether it would have characters that have been seen in million films before or whether it would end up being regressive just in order to be socially and politically correct. However, when it comes to his latest production WE ARE FAMILY, Karan Johar is quick to dispel any such speculations and confirms that his Kajol, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal starrer is as progressive as it gets.



"There is not a single regressive tone in WE ARE FAMILY", Karan makes a strong declaration for the film which marks the debut outing for director Siddharth Malhotra, "It pretty much provides insight into the situations of today. The film is very progressive and has a modern outlook to it. Nobody, whether it is Arjun, his ex-wife Kajol or the new woman in his life, Kareena, behaves or says something which is remotely regressive. Also, while doing that, we have not crossed any limits either. There isn't anything which would conflict the traditions of our country."

This is the reason why he was extra conscious when it came to finalizing the title of the film. While using STEPMOM as the title was a definite no-no, he didn't even want it's verbatim Hindi translation.

"That would have sounded pretty negative", reasons Karan, "Ours is a heart warming film rather than the kind that results in any negative energy surrounding the characters. Also, we haven't made a scene-to-scene remake of STEPMOM. It is an adaptation. We wanted a sense of positive energy in our film and hence the title WE ARE FAMILY."
