Is Shah Rukh Khan's Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa Remake Happening?
Shah Rukh Khan has a wealth of films under his belt. Shah Rukh Khan has been wise (mostly) when selecting the right film for his career. And now, a remake of the 1994 cult classic, Kabhi Haan Kabhi Na is most likely on the cards
Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan is known for his calculated choices when it comes to selecting films. He emerged as one of the top breakout stars following his big screen debut and over time took over the title of the King of Bollywood. His filmography is most definitely one to be reckoned with. While he never wanted to play the villain, he played the anti-hero in several films and emerged as the ultimate poster boy for romantic films. From the many blockbuster titles the actor has under his belt, one of his most loved films happens to be Kundan Shah's Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa.
Not only was it a big hit with the audiences, but Shah Rukh Khan himself has admitted to being very attached to it.

Another source said that "SRK and his team might make Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa again for the web. There are also talks about making a digital series on the same plotline as the movie. A popular OTT platform has also shown keen interest in the same. Shah Rukh won't star in it and it's expected to have a younger cast."
