en Bollywood News Rani Mukerji recalls shooting for ‘Koi Mil Gaya’ song at 17; calls it “quite a nightmare”

At a recent award function, Rani Mukerji reunited with her Kuch Kuch Hota Hai co-star and cousin Kajol and recalled shooting for the film at the age of 17. 

Kuch Kuch Hota Hai was released in 1998 and quickly became a blockbuster hit, with its unique blend of romance, friendship, and family drama. The Karan Johar directorial will clock 25 this year in October. Though it’s been over two decades, the film enjoys a massive fan following. Recently, the leading ladies of the Shah Rukh Khan starrer reunited at the Hello! award and shared the stage. Interestingly, the duo briefly spoke about Rani’s short dress in the ‘Koi Mil Gaya’ song.

Kajol, who played Anjali in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, asserted, “When I saw her in that, I thought, ‘It doesn’t look like she can move anything, how is she going to do that!’ But she was brilliant, flawless and so very graceful.” In the response, Rani said, “The honest answer is I don’t know it myself. I just went with the flow. I was only 17 years old and till such time, I hadn’t worn such a short skirt ever in my life.”

She further explained, “So when Karan and Manish (Malhotra) presented the outfit to me it was a gown, which kept getting shorter and shorter till I reached the set. When the outfit was taken to the cameramen, he looked at it and said, ‘Oh is this for baby Sana” and they were like, ‘No it is actually for Rani’ so he got a fright!”

Mukerji then added, “I had Shah Rukh, Kajol di, Karan and Farah, who was choreographing the song. There was a lot of support I got from the team, especially from Karan, he made me feel very confident. I was petrified walking on top of that platform because all the boys and girls were below, looking up, so that was quite a nightmare for me. When I saw myself on screen, I was also shocked.”

On the professional front, Rani was last seen in Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway. Released in March this year, the film managed to perform well at the box office.
