It also had a very special guest appearance by Shah Rukh Khan. While the movie did fairly well at the box office soon after hitting screens all over India, Karan Johar hadn’t returned to direction after that.

The film is a rooted love story with strong family emotions.

Sharing more details regarding the movie, KJo tweets, “Yes, it’s a love story, but no – it’s not your regular love story. Rocky and Rani are going to redefine your usual love stories to take you on a journey! Meet the rest of the parivaar today at 2 pm! #RockyAurRaniKiPremKahani #RRKPK.”
