Karan Johar shares connection between Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
The red chunni of Kajol’s Anjali from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai is quite famous as it played a significant part throughout the film. She leaves it in possession of Rani Mukerji’s Tina when she goes away forever realizing Rahul (Shah Rukh Khan) would never love her. Then Tina passes it onto her daughter. In Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, the unrequited love story of Dharmendra and Shabana Azmi’s characters is central to the film. Shabana ji knits a red muffler for him which he keeps close to him for ages. The red scarf/chunni might just be Karan Johar’s way of symbolizing challenges in love.
The filmmaker took to Instagram on Thursday, August 17, and shared the reference that he used from the cult classic film in his newest release. He shared one still of Dharmendra from RRKPK holding a red scarf and another still of Rani from KKHH clasping onto the red chunni, and wrote, “Some things never change…..” Have a look:
