In this awesome video Congress leader Salman Khurshid and German ambassador to India Michael Steiner made their acting debut. The Kal Ho Naa Ho video has been remaked with Salman Khurshid and German ambassador to India Michael Steiner in the lead along with his wife Eliese.
Originally ‘Kal Ho Naa Ho’ starred Shah Rukh Khan-Saif Ali Khan and Preity Zinta in the lead role.
This video has been Titled “Lebe Zetzt-Kal Ho Naa Ho”, German ambassador to India Michael Steiner is Playing Shahrukh Khan whereas his wife is playing Preity Zinta. Salman Khurshid filled in the role played by Saif Ali Khan.
“In politics, we don’t know if there would be a tomorrow or not. Similarly in life also the motto should be to live life to the fullest and in the present,” Salman Khurshid told the media here.
Traditional diplomacy was about government-to-government relations. Modern diplomacy is more about people-to-people relations. And culture is central here.
This is why Michael Steiner, German Ambassador to India, and Salman Khurshid, former Foreign Minister of India, without taking themselves too seriously, plunged into uncharted waters. Together with Eliese Steiner and under the direction of Sumit Osmand Shaw, they pay homage to the Indian film by reenacting one of its most famous music videos – thus connecting people across borders.
This remake, instead, has been shot in India. It is an Indo-German tribute to Bollywood movies, which have a huge fan base not only in India, but also in Germany.
The title says “LEBE JETZT” because, in German, it means exactly what the wonderful song “KAL HO NAA HO” asks us to do: Live right now to the fullest!
