Kuch Kuch Hota Hai remains special for reasons more than one. From its story to casting, everything about this Karan Johar directorial was spot-on. KKHH not only gave Bollywood one of its most loved onscreen pairings – Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, it also introduced cinefans to Rani Mukerji, who was barely three films old when Kuch Kuch Hota Hai released on October 16, 1998.

The millennials fell in love with Shah Rukh, Kajol and Rani in the characters of Rahul, Anjali and Tina, respectively. From its friendship goals to fashion and even dialogues like “pyaar dosti hai” and “kuch kuch hota hai Rahul, tum nahi samjhoge” several things are etched in our memory even today.

As the blockbuster film completes 20 years today, here are some throwback pictures from Kuch Kuch Hota.
