Karan Johar’s ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ is one of the most admired films across the globe and there have been a slew of revelations from behind the scenes of the film. Now, KJo has revealed why Shah Rukh Khan asked him to not set foot on the basketball court during the shooting of the film.
Taking to his Instagram stories, Karan Johar shared unseen pictures from the sets of the 1988 film. The photo featured Karan Johar holding a basketball while talking to Shah Rukh.
The picture featured Karan wearing a white T-shirt and jacket as he held a basketball. SRK was seen in a white shirt and a tie as he spoke with Karan. The name of the film was written on the photo.
Sharing the black and white picture, Karan wrote, "As if I knew anything about basketball... I kept calling it a 'goal' till bhai (brother) took over and told me never to set foot on the court!!! (see-no-evil monkey and laughing emoji)."
For those unaware, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998) is a musical romance film written and directed by Karan Johar. The film starred Farida Jalal, Anupam Kher, Reema Lagoo, Archana Puran Singh, Himani Shivpuri and Johnny Lever.
In the film, Shah Rukh and Kajol's characters are seen playing basketball, during their college days and also later in the movie.
To everyone’s surprise, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai was the most “politically incorrect” film and as per an Indian Express report, Karan recalled what Shabana Azmi told him.
He had said, “She told me, ‘what have you shown? That a girl has short hair, so she’s not attractive, and now her hair is long and she’s pretty? What do you have to say to this?’ I said I’m sorry. She said, what? That’s all you have to say?’ I said yes because I know you’re right.”
