Karan Johar is celebrating 20 years of Kuch Hota Hai in Mumbai.
The director has tossed a bash where his friends from Bollywood, including Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and Rani Mukerji, are in participation.
The 1998 film was a blockbuster. Indeed, even today, the three focal characters, Rahul, Anjali and Tina are as well known as they were 20 years back.
Kuch Hota Hai marked Karan Johar’s debut as a director in Bollywood. Karan shared a poster of the film and expressed gratitude toward the crowd for the gigantic love that the film has gotten throughout the years.
He took to twitter and wrote: “Can’t believe it’s been #20yearsofKKHH! A film that gave me love , acceptance and a career….will always be eternally grateful to Shahrukh Khan, Kajol, Rani Mukhrjee and Salman Khan for indulging a 25 year old boy with stars in his eyes!!! Thank you for all the love.”
He revealed it was Shah Rukh who suggested him to start the shoot of the film with a song, as he can settle down by then. “Farah did the songs and Shah Rukh said, I should supervise it. Then I got confidence. Now I always tell first-time directors to start with a song because the atmosphere is fun and light so you can settle with your characters and then start your film,” he said in an interview to PTI.
“What I realised is that when you have fun off screen it translates on screen. Your off-screen equation is conveyed on screen. There is some relatability, touchability, that comes on screen. You don’t know what is it that attracts people,” Kajol recalled her experience of working on Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.
