Remember the touchy romantic story of two best friends who fall in love after years of separation? Yes, that was ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’, way back in 1998! And now, it is ‘Koochie Koochie Hota Hai’ in 2012.
‘Koochie Koochie Hota Hai’ is an upcoming animated film which is being directed by Vishal Sonawane and Tarun Mansukhani. The film is the animated remake of the 1998 blockbuster film. Like the original film, this too will be produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions.
The major love story of Rahul, Tina and Anjali revolves between three dogs, and the roles of supporting casts will be played by other animals like roosters, pigs, cats, bears, and so on. The voice of Rocky will be lent by Shah Rukh Khan, Anjali Kapoor’s by Kajol, Tina Malhotra’s by Rani Mukerji and Aman’s by Sanjay Dutt. The voice of the Principal of the college will be lent by the original principal himself, Anupam Kher.
The production of this film started in 2010 and was ready for a 2011 release, but due to some reasons, it has been pushed back to a 2012 release. It would be interesting to watch if the animated remake can create the same magic which the original film had created on screen more than a decade back.
