Karan Johar reveals his heart sank when he saw 300 women leaving Kuch Kuch Hota Hai in the interval; he later realized they went to the loo since they were crying and their mascara had come off

en Bollywood News Karan Johar reveals his heart sank when he saw 300 women leaving Kuch Kuch Hota Hai in the interval; he later realized they went to the loo since they were crying and their mascara had come off

Karan Johar’s directorial debut Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), starring Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and Rani Mukerji, is all set to complete 25 years next month, on October 16. The film was a runaway blockbuster but sadly, KJo couldn’t properly enjoy its success at the time of its release. This is because the underwater had called his father, Yash Johar, and asked him to stall the film’s release. The cops provided protection. Yet, Karan wasn’t even allowed to mingle with the guests at the premiere, held at Mumbai’s Liberty cinema and was kept locked up in a room. After the screening, the party moved to the popular restaurant, Khyber. When six gatecrashers entered the party, without any mal-intention, Yash Johar got so paranoid that he, Karan and mother Hiroo Johar left for London by a 4:00 am flight.

Karan Johar opened up about this episode while speaking to Mayank Shekhar of Mid-Day. He continued that they lived in a discreet location in a tiny apartment in London. The fear was so great that Hiroo Johar even hoped that it would be great if Kuch Kuch Hota Hai is not a success so that the attention didn’t fall on them.

Nevertheless, a few days later, Karan Johar went to a large single-screen theatre in London to check the audience reaction to Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. He said that he was devastated when he saw 300 people leaving during the interval.

KJo feared the worst but his father, Yash Johar, felt something is not right. Karan Johar narrated, “He (Yash Johar) walked outside and there was a huge line in the ladies’ washroom. He asked why there was such a crowd. They said, ‘Can’t you see, our mascara is off. We have cried so much!’”

Any remaining doubt vanished in thin air when he spoke to Aditya Chopra, whose company Yash Raj Films distributed Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. KJo stated, “Adi asked me, ‘What is the most expensive thing you want to buy?’ I said, ‘I want to move to a bigger house with mom and dad’. He said, ‘So, come back to Bombay, and buy the biggest house—your movie is a blockbuster!”
