With KURBAAN being a thing of the past, one can expect Karan Johar to have indeed moved on. His biggest film till date, MY NAME IS KHAN, is up for release this Valentines Day and one can expect the promotion to begin any time. Though one can trust Karan and Co. to have come up with an altogether different storyline for both MY NAME IS KHAN and KURBAAN, one wonders whether thematically there are any similarities.

"Not at all", shoots back Karan, "MY NAME IS KHAN is a completely different film. The film is set at a larger scale thematically and is about global perception. Moreover, it is totally emotionally based. The film doesn't have any religious or spiritual undertone to it but basically sends across the message of humanity."

CHECK OUT : MY NAME IS KHAN: Silence creates huge hype! 

Karan, who has produced as well as directed MY NAME IS KHAN, says that the film brings with it an altogether different point of view.

"This time around, the point of view is defensive, not offensive", he explains, "The film belongs to a totally different world. When you understand the protagonist (played by Shah Rukh Khan) and his belief in humanity, you would understand the heart and soul of the film."

Starring Kajol as the lead opposite Shah Rukh Khan, the film also features Jimmy Sheirgill, Soniya Jehan, Zarina Wahab, Parvin Dabbas, Arif Zakaria, Navneet Nishan, Sheetal Menon, Tanay Chheda and Arjun Mathur. With music by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, MY NAME IS KHAN releases all over on 12th February.
