Karan Johar‘s directorial debut Kuch Kuch Hota Hai is a cult classic. Everything from the clothes, to the slang to the songs, had become a craze during that time and continues to be so even today. If you come across anyone who does not know the phrase Pyaar Dosti Hai, unfriend them immediately (Just kidding). So, to say that the 1998 film was a hit would be an understatement.

But 20 years later, here’s what Karan Johar has to say about Rahul, the dreamy hero of K2H2.

Rahul was a bit of a fraud anyway. He used to say ‘we love once, marry once’ but did it twice. In my head I hope the marriage works, but it must have been a tough marriage.

Talking about little Anjali he said,

I hope the little Anjali  isn’t messed up, because at eight she was loaded with so much information.

Looking back Karan says that it was a combination of excitement and fear while directing K2H2 because back then his father Yash Johar was going through a bad phase of having produced movies that didn’t do so well at the box office. So, KJo had a big task at hand and he didn’t disappoint at all!

He also revealed that he had struggled while directing scenes during the film, but, Shah Rukh Khan suggested that he start by directing a song sequence so that he gets settled into his role by then.

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.

How cool is that?!
