Speaking about this film, Ranveer had recently said, “This is Karan Johar’s ‘Karan Johar-est film’. This brings back the feel of Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham…. It was a very concerted and deliberate effort. Karan Johar is bringing back that type of cinema that we grew up watching on the big screen. It has been such a big part of our lives. To a whole generation, Karan’s Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham… are nothing short of “cult classics”. These movies form an integral part of our growing up years. So this film has all those qualities of Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham… — the family, songs, happiness, joy. I believe this is a film that will make people really happy. They would have a smile on their face and a feeling of warmth in their hearts.” ‘Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani’ is scheduled to hit the screens on July 28.
