That’s not all. Even Shah Rukh Khan joined KJo in a nostalgic conversation about the iconic film. Released in 1998, the romantic drama starring SRK was one of the blockbusters of the year. Kuch Kuch Hota Hai chronicled the story of a mother, played by Rani, who leaves eight letters for her daughter before her death so that she can unite her father (Shah Rukh) with his best friend, enacted by Kajol, as she believed he loved her.

Adding to it, Dharma Productions posted a small GIF in order to celebrate the completion of 18 years of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and why it is the best way about your Sunday.

In a recent interaction with the media, Karan had said that he was 24 when he wrote the film and was inspired by the cinema of Raj Kapoor, Yash Chopra among others. He accepted that he might not be able to make another K2H2 now. We understand that, considering now that his films are more about matured love and heartbreaks. His next directorial is Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, releasing this Diwali.
