Mumbai, July 13 (IANS) Karan Johar's next extravaganza "Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna" is ready with Amitabh Bachchan rating Johar's production company as "easily the best" in the country today.

"This is my second film with Karan. Most of my work is over. It's a different mature subject. It was nice to have Abhishek with me again. We play father and son once more after 'Sarkar'," Amitabh told IANS.

Amitabh says Dharma Productions is one of the best film-producing units in Bollywood.

"Karan's is a very organised production unit. Everything was in place. Karan never gets on the floors until he is absolutely sure. Now that his father is no more I think Karan wanted to make doubly sure nothing was out of place.

"His mother was in New York with us throughout. We were very well looked after. He does his homework very well. Karan's is easily the best production company in the country today."

Amitbah describes "Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna" as a story of marital relationships. Apart from Amitabh and Abhishek, the film also stars Shah Rukh Khan, Rani Mukerji and Preity Zinta.

"I play adviser and friend to Abhishek. Abhishek and I were seen earlier in 'Bunty Aur Babli' and 'Sarkar'. Karan takes us into an entirely different territory. I think Karan is trying something entirely different here. It was a very relaxed young unit."

About his look in the film Amitabh said: "Since this is a very young film, Karan and Manish Malhotra wanted to work out a very trendy look. I think their styling is terrific.

"Current trends have been duly incorporated. My character is very relaxed and easygoing with life. I liked playing that."
