Actor Kirron Kher remembers Dostana and reveals about sequel

Actor Kirron Kher, who played the role of Abhishek Bachchan’s mother in the movie Dostana, goes down memory lane and recalls how much fun it was to shoot for the film in Miami and Mumbai.

Nine years are over but still the song 'Maa da ladla' is a favourite among many.

“Since I knew Priyanka, John and Abhishek, it was like working within the family. Though I don’t think it was the first time a film showed gay people, the beauty of it was the mother’s acceptance of it. And that, I think, was new in Indian cinema and it made the film so interesting,” says Kirron, adding that it wasn’t a “serious film” on homosexuality rather a “comic take” on the subject.

she particularly remembers her dialogue where she blesses her son (Abhishek) and gives her kangan to John. “The funniest part was when I said my dialogue ‘jeete raho… phoolo phalo’, Tarun, our director, suddenly came to me and said ‘khair chhodo, yeh to ho nahi sakta’ (anyway, it can’t happen, so, leave it). So, that ‘Khair chhodo’ was something that wasn’t in the script and was added pronto. And it literally brought the house down in the theatre and even on set when we shot the scene.”

There was news going around that a sequel is being made in the year 2012 and Kiren too confirmed that saying “Yes, Tarun had come to be with the script and they had written a couple of versions of the sequel, but apparently, were not satisfied with it. I read it and heard the narration too and it was quite interesting but I don’t know what happened after that, as it didn’t materialise.”

Kirron reveals, “In the sequel, my character goes on to join politics and is running something of her own and had turned into a gay rights activist. So, it was quite interesting that way. Let’s see if that happens in future, as nothing has come up in all these years, so I can’t say.”
