With HUMPTY SHARMA KI DULHANIA, filmmaker and producer Karan Johar is paying a tribute to the super hit Bollywood film DILWALE DULHANIA LE JAYENGE, which was interestingly his first film.
Says Karan, ''I have a lot of memories of DDLJ. I started my career from there and it is and will be the largest part of my career. Most young kids have grown up on this story. It became the epic barometer for love story. It is the pillar love story.''
He adds further, ''HSKD has some glimpses from DDLJ. But this story is not a copy. HSKD is an ode to DDLJ. HSKD is made with honesty, integrity and with an intention to entertain people.''
Karan Johar's HUMPTY SHARMA KI DULHANIA, directed by Shashank Khaitan, stars Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt and is all set to release on July 11, 2014.
