‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai,’ a classic romantic drama, is one such movie that has etched itself into the hearts of audiences. In a recent revelation, the talented and ever-charming Kajol opened up about a role she wished she could have portrayed, expressing her desire to step into Rani Mukerji’s shoes in the Shah Rukh Khan starrer. This revelation offers fans a glimpse into the dynamics of casting choices and the camaraderie shared among Bollywood’s leading ladies.

Released in 1998, ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ directed by Karan Johar became an instant classic, capturing the essence of love, friendship, and heartbreak. Kajol plays the role of Anjali, a tomboyish character who later realises that she is in fact in love with her best friend Rahul, who in turn is in love with Tina. But did you know, Kajol wanted to play Tina’s role in the film, which was essayed by Rani Mukerji? Kajol revealed this in a recent interview on Rajeev Masand’s Netflix Actors’ Roundtable. What is hilarious however is how Karan Johar reacted to this, he simply asked her to shut up! The film recently completed 25 years in the industry, and this fact comes as a surprise even to me.
