DDLJ, KKHH, K3G...

What do the letters in the title stand for? What do they have in common?

Any Hindi movie fan would get that right away. I not the FDFS (first day first show) types. I don't watch too many movies either. The last few movies I've watched in the cinema have been Children's movies. But those movies in the title and some others have been special and not just because they have at least one common person in all of them.

I'm not talking about SRK (Shahrukh Khan), who starred in all the three movies but about the Director (Assistant Director and actor in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge) who celebrates his birthday today, 44 year old Karan Johar.


Three years after DDLJ, he was on the writer's desk and the director's chair to create the biggest film of the year, and the third highest grossing film (to that date) in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.


Another three years later, I went to watch the next movie with the parents, my new wife, siblings and their kids - to a late night show. And the movie was an absolute blast with a few of the ladies shedding some tears during the show. 'Sometimes Happiness, Sometimes Sadness' - 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham' - Let's say 'Shava Shava'.


Getting out of the mould of love triangles, Karan achieved worldwide acclaim and success with a very different story focussing on autism, political issues, etc. in My Name is Khan.

Karan is going strong in a production role and his latest flick this year has been "Kapoor and Sons (since 1921)". Ab ke liye... party hai... Let's Nacho.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY KARAN... HAVE A 'KRAZY' YEAR
