Filmmaker Karan Johar's next movie is a tribute to his late father.
He has decided to name his next production - Dostana - after the 1980 blockbuster of the same name made by his father, Yash Johar.
The story is set in Miami and Karan's assistant - Tarun Mansukhani - will start shooting it, this summer.
Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham and Priyanka Chopra lead the glamorous cast.
Says Karan, "Tarun Mansukhani's brilliant script (about friendship between two guys played by Abhishek and John) is funny, sassy, and hilarious!"
Karan gets nostalgic about the title.
"When my father produced Dostana in 1980, he was going through hard times. But all the three principal actors - Amit uncle (Bachchan), Shatrughan Sinhaji and Zeenat Aman - co-operated to the fullest. That's how the film was made."
So is the new Dostana a love triangle like the old one?
"Ha! Well, yes and no. All I can say on record is that, we've never had a love triangle like this before, and, you'll never see Abhishek and John playing something like this again," says Karan.
He's also relieved that, there was no title hassle this time.
"For Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, I had to ask Aroona Irani aunty. She sweetly gave me the title in exchange for a kiss! For Dostana, I had to kiss nobody, except my father's memory."
