A new television reality show, Hunarbaaz is all set to premiere on Colors TV on January 22. The show will be judged by filmmaker Mithun Chakraborthy, Karan Johar and Parineeti Chopra. In the latest promo shared by Colors TV, filmmaker Karan Johar gets emotional as a contestant plays Abhi Mujhme Kahein song from his film Agneepath (2012).
A young boy played Abhi Mujhme Kahein song on the flute. After listening to the music, the filmmaker got emotional while Parineeti Chopra went to his seat to comfort him and gave him a hug. “I get really emotional listening to this song.” said Karan.
On being asked by Mithun Chakraborthy why he got emotional, Karan told that the song always reminds him of his father Yash Johar. He said, “Yeh gaana sunke, dada. Kyunki papa ke dil ke itne kareeb thi original film aur jab wo nahi chali thi, unka dil toot gaya tha.”
Karan further added, “Jab ye film humne firse banayi, nothing compared to the original, ye gaana mujhe unki yaad dilata hai in some very strange way.” Mithun also expressed his feelings about Yash Johar and said, “ Chacha was one of the best people and a friend I had. I miss him too.”
The original version of Agneepath was produced by Yash Johar in 1990 and directed by Mukul Anand. It starred Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role. The remake of Agneepath was produced by Karan Johar in 2012 and starred Hrithik Roshan and Sanjay Dutt in lead roles.
