If you’re a Bollywood buff then you’ll know that Bole Chudiyan from Karan Johar's 2001 film Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham remains one of the most popular songs till date. The hit song brought together Bollywood superstars Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor in one frame and it also turned out to be the biggest chartbuster of that year. And now 18 years later, the song has crossed 400 million views on YouTube. Woza!
Sony Music had first taken to social media to announce that the film had hit 400 million views. Ace film maker Karan Johar then also took to his Twitter account and shared that the song had been the most memorable song of his career. At the time the film was released, the 47-year-old director was only one film old at the time and was rather nervous working with veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan that he fainted on the sets of the song.
Taking to his Twitter account, the film maker and wrote, "Most memorable song of my career! My first working opportunity with the LEGEND @SrBachchan ( literally fainted with nervousness) and the coming together of such incredible talent! @iamsrk @iHrithik @KajolAtUN #Jayabachchan #bebo choreographed by the one and only @TheFarahKhan."

Ever since the success of his first film, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Karan Johar has been on a roll. He then directed a family drama - Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham - in 2001 which was a huge success at the box office.
As of late, Karan Johar is all set to return to direction with his upcoming Takht. The period drama will see stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar, Janhvi Kapoor and Anil Kapoor come together. Takht is going to narrate the story of a family, of ambition, greed, of betrayal, of love and of succession. The film will mark the first time Karan Johar will direct Kareena Kapoor after 18 years; the last time being in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham.
