Kuch Kuch Hota Hai completes 20 years today as it marks the coming together of Bollywood’s favourite trio -- Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and director Karan Johar, who went on to deliver massive hits in the industry. A mega-blockbuster, the film also had Rani Mukerji in a small yet relevant role. 
 
Looking back at what happened right with the film, Karan Johar said that the hero of the film, Shah Rukh was “a bit of a fraud”. He elaborated, “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. I hope the little Anjali (Sana Saeed) isn’t messed up, because at eight she was loaded with so much information.”
 
The film proved to be so much more than just a story of friendship and love as it strengthened a strong bond between the trio who became unbreakable for many years to come. 
 
The film was special for Karan as it was his first directorial but he admits that Shah Rukh really came out as a friend and supported him in the journey. Karan said, “It was a doctor’s set with Shah Rukh in it and I had directed it poorly but he (Shah Rukh) was kind. When I shot that dentist scene, I edited immediately and showed it to him. I realised it was a bad scene and told him about it.

In a tweet, Karan wrote: "I can’t believe it’s been #20YearsOfKKHH ! A film that gave me love, acceptance and a career....will always be eternally grateful to @KajolAtUN @iamsrk #rani and @BeingSalmanKhan for indulging a 25 years old boy with stars in his eyes! Thank you for all the love."

 “And he said, ‘As long as you know it! I am happy that you do.’ I removed that scene.”
 
Kajol, in another interview, when asked if Kuch Kuch Hota Hai 2 with a new cast would relive the magic of the first, she disagreed. It has been speculated that Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Janhvi Kapoor will be cast in KKHH sequel if it’s ever made.
