Back in 2012, Farhan Akhtar had spoken to Bollywood Hungama about the film. He said, “It's amazing the number of people who speak to me about that film. It’s incredible. They speak to me about Dil Chahta Hai, then they talk about Lakshya and now they talk about Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. These are the three big films, in terms of my work, they speak to me about.”

He added, “Lakshya is very close to my heart. That film, in terms of what it stood for, in terms of as a production achievement what we were able to pull off after being one film old; in terms of capturing, recreating and showcasing a world that was alien to both Ritesh and me. We had no idea about the army way of life. When we met the Chief of Army, and many officers and people subsequently who came out of the academies like IMA were like 'This is our life. You all have shown it in best possible way'. To me, I do feel a sense of pride in that.”

Meanwhile, to amplify the excitement surrounding this milestone, Excel Entertainment announced the re-release of the timeless classic Lakshya. Starting June 21, 2024, the film will be screened for the public in over 50 PVR INOX cinemas across more than 20 cities in India. This special cinematic event will allow audiences to relive the magic of Lakshya on the big screen, experiencing its powerful themes and unforgettable moments all over again.

Directed by the talented Farhan Akhtar and penned by the legendary Javed Akhtar, Lakshya takes audiences on a journey of courage, growth, and finding one's purpose within the Indian Army. At its heart is Karan Shergill, portrayed by the charismatic Hrithik Roshan, whose transformative journey continues to resonate with viewers of all ages.

Excel Entertainment taking on social media dropped a special trailer for the 20th-anniversary of Lakshya revisiting the film's powerful narrative of self-discovery and determination, showcasing Hrithik Roshan's journey capturing the film's inspiring message and emotional depth.
