We want to capture the spirit that you saw in Chak De! India. It’s about how a teacher is going to teach these kids and how these kids will change the teacher’s life. We are capturing this interesting relationship for the first time.” Teacher-student relationship… hmmm…is he referring to the empathetic bond between Vidya (Vidya Malavade) and Kabir Khan (Shahrukh Khan), or to the way Bindiya (Shilpa Shukla) offers to seduce Kabir? We won’t be surprised if there are elements of the latter in the show.
