Love it or hate it, there’s no denying that Karan Johar’s directorial debut Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998) is iconic.
In case your memory needs a refresher, the story followed eight-year-old Anjali who wants to reunite her widowed father Rahul (Shah Rukh Khan) with his former best friend and her namesake Anjali (Kajol) years after they had grown apart. In the movie, Rahul and Anjali went their separate ways after Anjali realised her love for her best friend was unrequited as he was in love with Tina (Rani Mukerji).
Over the years, and after many rewatch sessions, we’ve got multiple questions for Johar about the movie. How did Tina expect her eight-year-old daughter to meddle in the lives of Rahul and Anjali, who could have been happily married and settled with someone else all this while? Did baby Anjali really get a letter every year until she turned eight, even at ages one, two and three? Did Aman find his Happily Ever After in the end?
Like us, the actors of the movie have some of their own unanswered questions about the movie and we might have gotten an answer for one after all!
Mukerji & Kajol recently reunited on the stage of HELLO! Hall of Fame Awards 2023 and when asked to share any fun memories from their time filming together 25 years ago, Kajol asked Mukerji how she could manage to dance in the micro mini dress in the song ‘Koi Mil Gaya’?!
Mukerji immediately replied saying that she had no idea how she pulled it off! The actress recalled that the dress, when shown to her by Johar and costume designer Manish Malhotra, was a full-length gown which continued to get shorter and shorter till it became the mini dress that has become one of the most iconic dresses from 90s Bollywood.
