Remember Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham? We know you won’t admit to watching it, but you have. Well, cut to 2015 and hey, K3G is back. A strong-headed patriarch, an emotional can’t-stand-this-hypocrisy-anymore mom, a bunch of kids who love and don’t love and want to love each other while cruising through existential crises and questioning the depth and meaning of relationships – Zoya Akhtar is back with another family drama wrapped in a well-shot ‘foreign trip’.
We loved the bromance of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (oodles of existential crisis there too) but DDD (are they calling it D3 yet?) is slicker, smarter and is international as it can get – Priyanka Chopra’s in it. Ships, sailors, powder blue dinner jackets, cherry coloured brogues and the two lovely ladies (why is Anushka Sharma cabaret-ing here too?) – welcome to the Man’s World.
Starring Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma, Shefali Shah, Anil Kapoor, Farhan Akhtar, Ranveer Singh (MW cover boys) and Rahul Bose the film releases in June. And of course, we are all going to catch it first day, first show. Hopefully, D3 will not be all razzmatazz and no meat.
In the meantime, here’s a gallery of the leading men of D3 through the MW lens.
