It’s been 20 years since Karan Johar blessed us with a cult classic Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.
A movie that taught us about love and friendship. A movie that taught us that you have to wear pretty clothes and makeup in order to be loved by men.
And above all, a movie that taught us “Love ka Matlab Dosti hai,” translation – “Love means Friendship”.
I’m sure all of us have a lot of fond memories associated with Bollywood‘s one of the most loved film, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.
Maybe you fell in love with Rahul and his coolness, with Tina and her beauty, or with Anjali and her tomboy attitude.
And who could forget Aman, the sweet and handsome fiancé, who actually turned out to be the real MVP for uniting two lovers at the end, maybe you fell in love with him?
For me, it was going to a picnic and while returning back seeing that Kuch Kuch Hota Hai is on in some movie channel. And even though I’ve watched it maybe a hundred times, I was still rushing to get back home so I wouldn’t miss it.
And as I came home it was almost the climax, and yet, the then 10-year-old me sat there and cried along with both the Anjalis, Rahul, Aman, and all the other characters when Aman got up from the ‘mandap’ and gave his fiancé’s hand to her one-sided high school sweetheart.
Today, the all-time cult favorite film, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai turns 20, that’s right folks, 20 years (all the 90s kids are old now, including me).
And to celebrate 20 years of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, here are 20 facts you probably didn’t know.
1 Rani Mukerji was only 19 while shooting the film.
2 Salman Khan and Kajol weren’t on talking terms during the shoot of “Saajanji Ghar Aaye” song.
3 Because of her husky voice, Karan Johar wanted to dub Rani’s voice.
4 During the bicycle sequence in the song “Yeh Ladki Hai Deewani,” Kajol fell flat on her face and went unconscious as she lost control.
5 Kajol temporarily lost her memory while also injuring her knees.
