Yesterday marked the 20 year anniversary of one of the biggest blockbusters in Bollywood. A film that defined an era in terms of fashion, dialogues and songs. Rahul, Anjali, and Tina have gone down in history as iconic characters from Karan Johar‘s directorial Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. Last night, the cast, crew and various other celebrities from B-Town celebrated the 20 years of this iconic movie and it was epic.
Shah Rukh Khan who played Rahul in the movie reminisced about how it was to play the character and even gave us some fun memories from the sets. But, he had the funniest reply to what he thought of his character now. While he said it was great fun playing the character and that he was glad he did the film, he now felt that Rahul was quite creepy.
I used to think he was very cool back then, but now I actually find him quite creepy. What is with the whole hugging one girl and holding another girl’s hand like that? And even creepily staring at a girl who’s saree just came off.
Rahul was also quite a fraud, don’t you think? He says Hum ek baar jite hai, ek baar marte hain, shaadi bhi ek hi baar hoti hai, aur pyaar, pyaar bhi ek hi baar hota hai. But, actually ends up falling in love twice and getting married twice.
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai Anjali, Tum Nahi Samjhongi
SRK also revealed that while Kajol and Rani Mukherji had cried when KJo had narrated the script to them, at the first narration of the script, he thought the story was crap. He said this was because Karan was crying while narrating the script to him and he could hardly understand anything. SRK also said that he was glad he did the film without listening to the entire script because it had now become a hit.
We’re so glad too! Can’t imagine anyone else as Rahul.
