Karan Johar has finally announced the name of his forthcoming Stepmom remake. Known for his mushy romantic and family-oriented movies, it almost comes as no surprise that the finalized title is: We Are Family. To be directed by newcomer Siddharth Malhotra (grandson of actor Prem Nath), who has the popular TV serial Saanjivini to his credit, We Are Family boosts of an unusual starcast – Kajol, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal.
Earlier named as Love You Maa, Karan had promised his ‘followers’ on Twitter that he would mention the final title on the social-networking site first. “Ok guys…here goes the title of our official Stepmom adaptation – We Are Family…will post the release date in a few days,” is what he tweeted a few days ago. The movie is being shot in Sydney and Mumbai. The music will be provided by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy.
Stepmom is a 1998 Chris Columbus movie starring Susan Sarandon, Julia Roberts and Ed Harris. It is a beautiful tale about a terminally-ill mother who has to deal with the new woman in her husband’s and consequently her children’s life.
Siddharth has stated that the first look of the movie will be out in a few days. After famously giving us ‘It’s all about loving your parents’, let’s see how this ‘Family’ saga of Karan’s turns out to be.
