Asoka

 

Release Date:
December 21
Director:
Karan Johar

Cast:
Amitabh Bachchan
Shah Rukh Khan
Hrithik Roshan
Jaya Bachchan
Kajol
Kareena Kapoor

Budget:
25 crores
Plot:
The plot is being kept tightly under wraps but we do know that it is a large family drama, with Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya as the parents of two sons, played by Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan. Shah Rukh is obviously paired with Kajol and Hrithik, with Kareena. Achla Sachdev as the grandmother makes it a three-generational story with all the warmth and happiness, laughter and tears which create a quintessential family drama.

Why It's Worth Waiting For:
This is the first time that three generations of superstars - Amitabh, Shah Rukh and Hrithik - will appear together on screen. In all probability it may never happen again in Hindi cinema. Then again, there are three charismatic top heroines so the starcast alone makes it a must-see film. Karan Johar has proved with KKHH that he loves the audiences and they love him back. With his friend Aditya Chopra's Mohabbatein also proving to be a boxoffice success, there is confirmation that the direction the two new directors are moving in has public validation. The sets by Sharmishta Roy in the first schedule were so magnificent that this film is certain to not just be another good film, but the magnum opus of 2001.
