Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa had been one of the well-known works of superstar Shah Rukh Khan, where we saw him more as an actor than a superstar. It had been one of the initial works of the Raees actor, based on a coming of age tale directed by Kundan Shah, and starring SRK, Suchitra Krishnamurthy, and Deepak Tijori. And as the cult film completes 23 years, King Khan has a special message for his fans.

At a time when most heroes were busy beating up the bad guys, Shah Rukh played a hero who was basically a loser. Many of us were completely new to the concept of cinema back then, but still, when he entered the arena, there was something about his skills and expressions, looking at which we were able to tell there is something different about this guy. Hardly were we able to predict that he would one day end up ruling Bollywood. That’s Shah Rukh for you, and Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa is one such film which strengthened his footing in films.

SRK tweeted about the film on Saturday, sharing a nostalgic message. “As Life inflicts pain upon u it balances it by creating a stunningly beautiful thing around u too. All u need 2 do is find it #23YearsOfKHKN,” wrote Shah Rukh Khan.

The Fan star, who is now one of the highest paid actors, worthy enough to be on top list of the Forbes, took a signing amount of Rs. 5,000 for the film, and did the entire film for Rs. 25,000.

Apart from Chak De India, Swades, Dil Se and Kal Ho Na Ho, Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa too is listed as one of the well known works of Shah Rukh Khan. The actor has come a long way since then. We have seen him do all kinds of roles- romantic, action, villainous et al.
