It was indeed a special night as it clocked 20 years of KKHH, stars gathered to ring in the success bash of SRK, Kajol, Rani Mukherji starrer KUCH KUCH HOTA HAI, which has been one of the most famous and loved film for all.
After each actor and spoke about the film followed by AV of the film and nostalgic messages, it was finally time for trio to sit there and have a candid conversation with Karan Johar.
It was indeed a delight to see all three on the same podium reminiscing about good old KKHH days.
During the course of the conversation, SRK said that he watched the film after a long time and now he did not find it right. “Now I find it quite creepy, actually. Especially the scene where I am hugging one girl and holding the other. And then I am lustfully and very cheaply looking at this girl whose saree’s pallu flies off. Very creepy! It seemed really wrong,” he said.
Director Karan Johar also chipped in to highlight the hypocrisy of Khan’s character. “Actually it’s quite a fraudulent statement you made, which you didn’t live up to. You said, ‘Hum ek hi baar jeete hain, ek hi baar marte hain, pyaar bhi ek hi baar hota hai aur shaadi [bhi].’ But you fell in love twice, you got married twice. So, actually your whole philosophy was fraudulent,” said Johar.
To which Mr Khan added, "But then I added, ‘Kuch kuch hota hai Anjali. Tum nahin samjhogi.’ Woh maine cover up kar liya tha [I had covered it up].” The crowd broke into laughs following Khan's statement.
SRK also said what made him say yes to KKHH and opined why ne never listens to scripts, “I never listen to scripts, I listen to the heartbeats of the people I work with at times millennial chat with me and say things like why you let go of that script that was such a great script. Till date, I never understood a script. And I can say this with confidence that I never understood the script but the script maker or the filmmaker.”
SRK added further saying, “Karan came and narrated an utterly nonsense crap story to me; which is certainly not the one that finally you people saw in the film. In his strange way Karan, the man with many words tried to impress me with his crap story. So yes, I really did not understand the story when I signed in. and I am glad that I did not get into the story and just went ahead with the conviction of Karan, otherwise the film would have not been the way it came out.”
At the event, Rani narrated how Shah Rukh’s first son, Aryan, was born right after they finished shooting for a song from the film, Koi Mil Gaya. She said she remembers playing with Aryan after shoots and others complimented Shah Rukh on making good-looking babies. She also revealed how Karan would snatch plates of food off her hands on film sets to keep her from gaining weight for a particular scene in the film.
Shah Rukh Khan also shared his fond memories while filming KKHH and also shard what he took back from the film saying, “ I love all the hard work and persistence that Karan has put in this film, when the script was narrated to me everyone was crying Kajol and Karan himself and I was also moved to an extent, the way Karan was saying things and narrating I was just touched by it. Usually I am a person who likes people with sense of humor, and wit, I can’t deal with serious people and here Karan and Kajol very seriously the script and sobbing. I have always loves the way Karan has dealt with emotions and stories and this film even when we meet after 40 years I will be reminiscing thoughts.”
With banter and laughs the event ended on a very happy note!
