Movies are hitting milestones and we’re getting older (it’s all going by so fast). A lot of films are hitting big numbers in terms of years since their release. The most recent one to do that is the Karan Johar romantic drama, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, which hits 12 years this year. The film was released on August 11, 2006.
One of the highest grossing films of the year, KANK polarised critics across India, who didn’t appreciate the film’s take on a subject as delicate as extra-marital affairs and adultery. However, internationally, the film was a critical and commercial success, and is one of the highest grossing Bollywood movies internationally. The film’s star cast, including Shah Rukh Khan, Rani Mukerji, Preity Zinta, Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan, have remembered the film fondly. So, to celebrate 12 years since our favourite tear-jerking cult classic, here are some pictures and facts from behind-the-scenes that might make you a tab bit emotional. Just a bit.
