The iconic film completes 20 years today. How would it have been different if made in 2015? Read on!
It’s hard to believe that superstars Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan had once shared screen space and given us Karan Arjun, exactly 20 years ago. A lot has gone down, including SRK and Salman’s sensational patch up this year. Karan Arjun will forever be remembered for its dramatic storyline and dialogues. However, how would things be any different if the venture was made in 2015? We list it all below:Abs-olutely worth flaunting
In the 20-year old Karan Arjun, we could only seen Salman showing off his drool worthy abs. In 2015 however, both SRK and Salman would be flaunting what they’ve got. For a long time Salman was known as the king of abs, but SRK turned the tables around by showing off his sexy bod first in Om Shanti Om’s Dard-e- Disco and the recently released Happy New Year’s song Manwa Lage. SRK and Salman in one frame today, why wouldn’t the shirts come off?
The Munnis and Sheilas will come knocking
An item number is a given if the venture is commercial in today’s scenario. Given that Karan Arjun belong to the same genre, we could expect to see a leading lady from B-town giving us her latkas and jhatkas ,clad in shimmering ghagra-cholis. Even though the film has a serious plot, makers wouldn’t cringe in finding a slot to fit in the ‘masaledaar’ song would they?
Lights, cameo, action!
In the new age commercial era of Bollywood, the story never ends at the lead characters. More often than not, a megastar is brought in to add that extra glamorous touch. In 2015’s Karan Arjun with SRK and Salman, who better to play the cameo than Aamir Khan? We bet the ‘third’ Khan would have made a guest appearance in the venture, thrilling the viewers in turn.
Karan Arjun ayenge- the special promotional number
Be it serious, comic or action plots, nowadays films have a ‘promotional song’ before its release which hints at the storyline in a musical format. Karan Arjun is best recognized for its legendary dialogue “Mere Karan-Arjun ayenge” said by Raakhee. The makers couldn’t have imagined the line to be a massive hit back then but things are different today. In 2015’s Karan Arjun, the dialogue would be made into a special promotional number. It would be incorporated in posters and trailers to ensure that it becomes the year’s greatest dialogue. Where earlier the audience had a choice of selecting their own meals, today they are made to gulp down whatever they are fed.
When the bro code is broken
SRK (Arjun) had Kajol (Sonia) to romance in the 1995 action thriller whereas Salman wooed Mamta Kulkarni (Bindiya). In today’s Karan Arjun, both the brothers would be given one woman to charm! In the name of shelling out a scandalous action thriller, a little tadka would be added to the plot when a leading actress from B-town would be the ‘bad girl’ who plays with both Salman and SRK’s hearts. Deepika or Katrina would have been cast for this role for sure! After all, both have been grilled equally on which camp they belong to, Salman or SRK?
