Shabana Azmi ‘blasted’ Karan Johar after watching Kajol in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai: ‘She was aghast’ – The Indian Express

He added, “She told me, what have you shown? That a woman has brief hair, so shes not appealing, and now her hair is long and shes quite? What do you need to say to this? I said Im sorry. She said, what? Thats all you need to state? I said yes since I understand youre right.”

In the first half of the movie, Kajol plays a short-haired gamine, Anjali, who is secretly in love with her buddy, Rahul (SRK). After eight years, she leaves aside all her tee shirts and denims and is outfitted in sarees, and has long hair.

Kajol and he had assured that they would work in my very first film. SRK might have established himself as the king of romance with this movie, however KJo later on criticised the character Rahul Khanna, and said that he didnt stand for much.

Karan Johars Kuch Hota Hai, starring Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and Rani Mukerji might be considered a turning point among 90s love, but it has dealt with criticism from a number of quarters over the years. Karan had himself dissected the film a couple of years earlier and accepted that his leading male in the film, played by SRK, didnt stand for much. The movie was likewise considered troublesome for its representation of the quintessential gamine, played by Kajol. The film completed 23 years of its release on Sunday.

In 2019, Karan Johar recalled how Shabana Azmi blasted him for Kajols short hairstyle. “KKHH is the most politically inaccurate movie. I keep in mind (starlet) Shabana Azmi saw the movie somewhere in the UK and she called me. She was aghast,” he said in his speech throughout the Indian Film Festival at Melbourne.

KJo also remembered the casting procedure for the film, “I was ecstatic to meet SRK. Kajol and he had actually guaranteed that they would work in my first film. I keep in mind going to meet him and I had no script, and just had a scene in my mind, which I told to him. He purchased into my bullsh * t! I informed him if you like this one scene then I will narrate the whole film to you, which was completely a lie … Tabu, Urmila (Urmila Matondkar), Aishwarya (Aishwarya Rai) turned me down, and Ash was the only one who was courteous to call me back. It took months to cast for Ranis part after Aditya Chopra suggested her.”

He discussed a deleted scene where Anjali confronts Rahul on his behaviour and tells him how he does not know how to take a stand. KJo said that he tossed out the scene as he believed it would cause a disservice to his leading male, but today he would have kept it, considering that his perceptiveness have progressed.

SRK may have developed himself as the king of love with this film, but KJo later on criticised the character Rahul Khanna, and said that he didnt stand for much. He told Mid-Day, “Rahul doesnt stand for really much. Hes a deeply confused character, doesnt understand what he desires and, actually, didnt do a lot much in the film.

Karan had himself dissected the movie a couple of years ago and accepted that his leading guy in the film, played by SRK, didnt stand for much. The movie was likewise considered troublesome for its representation of the essential gamine, played by Kajol. The film finished 23 years of its release on Sunday.
