If you want to feel old on this fine morning then here’s some news for you. The kid actor who played Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol’s son (Jibraan Khan) in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001) is all grown-up and making his onscreen comeback with the reboot of Ishq Vishq (2003).
In case you want a refresher, here’s Khan in one of the most pivotal scenes in the movie:
Now he’s going to be a part of the remake of one of the most beloved Bollywood rom-com from most of our childhood. The makers announced the news recently, revealing that the new one will be a modern-day take on love and relationships.
The K3G star is going to star in the lead, along with Pashmina Roshan (cousin of Hrithik Roshan), Rohit Saraf, and Naila Grewal. The original, starring Shahid Kapoor and Amrita Rao, might not have aged very well but it still remains one of the most iconic movies of our generation. The reboot called Ishq Vishk Rebound, is supposed to center around the idea of dating apps. According to the official synopsis, “When relationships can be found on apps, and lost over a chat, you know that love needs an upgrade.”
Khan took to his Instagram to announce the news, writing “Dreams do come true.”
