'Pyaar Dosti Hai' -- the first time when viewers heard these words was the year 1998. Twenty-one years have passed since then, but the legacy of the movie 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai' continues to live.
The film was Karan Johar's first directorial and hence, occupies a special place in his filmography. From peppy songs to the stellar cast of Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and Rani Mukerji, the film had won over the audience and how.
As Kuch Kuch Hota Hai clocks 21 years today, KJo took to Instagram to express his gratitude for all the love this film continues to receive.
Karan johar wrote, “Firsts are always special! The cast, crew, music & the heart & soul of this film was all in the right place.. Thank you for making this journey a timeless one even after 21yrs! #21YearsOfClassicKKHH”
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai gave one of the most iconic dialogues of Indian cinema: ‘Pyar dosti hai ... agar woh meri sab se achchi dost nahin ban sakti, to main usse kabhi pyar kar hi nahi sakta ... kyun ki dosti bina toh pyar hota hi nahin ... simple, pyar dosti hai’. There is hardly anyone who doesn’t remember this dialogue especially if you are a 90s kid.
Earlier, KJo had also hinted at making a sequel to his blockbuster film which left the audience extremely excited. Rumours hit the internet Alia Bhatt would be cast in the role of Anjali for the sequel. However, the filmmaker later cleared that he is no mood to do that.
Karan Johar had said during an audience interaction at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne this year that he didn’t even have the script when he approached Shah Rukh Khan to work in his first film. He said, “I had no script, and just had a scene in my mind, which I narrated to him. He bought into my bullsh*t! I told him if you like this one scene then I will narrate the entire film to you, which was completely a lie... Tabu, Urmila (Urmila Matondkar), Aishwarya (Aishwarya Rai) turned me down, and Ash was the only one who was polite to call me back. It took months to cast for Rani's part after Aditya Chopra recommended her."
