There is an interesting story that goes behind the naming of the character played by Jackky Bhagnani. Apparently, the debutant lead of KAL KISSNE DEKHA wanted a conventional name to launch him into Bollywood. He always imagined that the moment he would come on screen for the first time, he would be addressed as, what else, but a Raj, Rahul or Sameer. However, he was aghast when told by director Vivek Sharma that his on screen name would be Nihal Singh.

Laughs Vivek, ''Since the time I ideated KAL KISSNE DEKHA, I have been very passionate about it. I didn't want anything in it to be changed since I was so confident about it. However, Jackky had other ideas. He was so sad when he realized that he is being named as Nihal in the film. He threw a fit and insisted that he get a typical name for himself; something on the lines of a Raj, Rahul or Sameer.''

Undeterred, Vivek assured him that he had to believe in the character and the way it was written, both the character and the name will become very popular in days to come. Even though Jackky kept insisting Vivek and his co-writer Sudhanshu to change the name, his demand wasn't met.

''I believe in the journey of characters, not gimmicks'', states Vivek, ''I explained to Jackky, Vaishali (Desai) as well as other characters the relevance of the names of their characters.''

The story goes that Vivek narrated them a sequence where Jackky does something heroic in the film for the first time. At the end of the fight sequence Nihal Singh says, 'Dekha sabka haal...Nihal'.

''This was it'', exclaims Vivek, ''Everyone reacted positively, and by now, Jackky was relaxed. He got the character right, that of Nihal Singh from Chandigarh, and in quick time, the actor in him became Nihal Singh.''
