Fans of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai have been rejoicing this week as the film celebrates two decades of release this year. The film which has been a cult for diehard romantics and now, 20 years later, the actors of KKHH are sharing some interesting anecdotes about shooting for the film. One of the interesting stories was shared by Kajol.
Kajol, who played the lead character of Anjali, recalled the time when they were shooting for the song ‘Koi Mil Gaya’ in Mumbai. While some portions of the film were shot in Ooty, some of it was filmed in Mehbood studios in Bandra. The actress was expected to wear a wig [fans who have seen the film will know that she sported short hair in a major portion of the film]. The actress mentioned that she felt horrible sporting that wig and that the set was said to be chaotic.
However, Kajol clearly remembers the time when she heard the song ‘Koi Mil Gaya’ then and immediately rushed to Karan Johar to appreciate the number. She described it as a fabulous number to him and hence, was more than happy to shoot for it.
Another fond memory that Kajol has of KKHH is working with Yash Johar. The actress expressed how much she liked Karan Johar’s father and maintained that he is one of the nicest persons she has met in her life. Speaking on her equation with Shah Rukh Khan and Karan Johar, the actress maintained that she does share a comfortable camaraderie with the duo and hence they have chosen films that have gone to become blockbusters.
Kajol, Shah Rukh Khan, Karan Johar went on to do films like Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, My Name Is Khan amongst others. Coming back to Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, the film is a love triangle set a decade apart as destiny plays an important role in the love story of Rahul and Anjali. Starring Sana Saeed in a supporting role and Salman Khan in an important appearance, the film also had Anupam Kher, Farida Jalal in integral roles.
