||KABHHI ALVIDA NA KEHNA
Well, as the movie has completed a decade, Abhishek Bachchan went ahead and shared his heart-felt message on social media and was grateful to Karan Johar for giving him the movie.
Abhi wrote in length, “Can't believe it's been 10 yrs since the release of KANK. Such a memorable film for me and very important too. I remember sitting in a preview theatre and watching Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and thinking.... He may be my childhood friend, He's like my elder brother, I really bully him, he allows me to get away with it. But how do I tell him that he just became one of my favourite directors!! How do I convince him to give me an opportunity to work with him?”
He added, “I remember going on the sets of Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham and being overwhelmed and over-awed by the sheer magnitude of his vision and saying quietly to myself..." Some day, Abhishek, some day... Just work hard enough and earn his attention". I still remember, I was at the success party for Dhoom when he told me that "a big overseas director" wanted to come offer me a film tomorrow. The next day, at the given time @karanjohar walked in with his LV bag and sat quietly. After 20 mins of polite conversation I said " KJ, so is this guy ever gonna show up? " to which he replied "I've been sitting here for 20 minutes!!!" I'll never forget that moment. Never! It dawned on me that after all these years of hoping and wishing Karan had finally offered me a film he was going to direct. I suddenly became very emotional and hugged him. And promised him that I would not let him down, that I would give it my all. I hope I lived up to my promise to him. Thank you Karan for trusting me with the character of Rishi. Thank you Pa, @iamsrk Rani @realpz for your endless patience and guidance throughout the film. The entire crew and cast for providing me with such a great experience. I believe that you should do films that when you sit back and reminisce, that memory should bring a smile to your lips and a tear of joy to your eyes and your heart should glow! KANK is definitely one of those memories.”
Indeed a sweet gesture by Abhishek Bachchan
