Why so, we asked.
"BECAUSE SRK DIES IN THE END. I read it in the papers. Last year (2002) he'd died in Devdas too." ???#16YearsOfKHNH https://t.co/lAbwDf9wtC
There are only two movies of Karan Johar that I cherish. One of them being #KalHoNaaHo. This movie is very close to me for many reasons. Damn, 16 years already ? #16YearsOfKHNH #16yearsofkalhonaaho https://t.co/8QK1DsEatn— Shruti Hariharan (@Shruti_2890) November 28, 2019
A story that won me over in a heartbeat. A film where the cast, the music, the team - all came together to create magic for a lifetime! #16YearsOfKalHoNaaHo @karanjohar @iamsrk #SaifAliKhan @realpreityzinta @nikkhiladvani https://t.co/ZNV8wA7xc7— Apoorva Mehta (@apoorvamehta18) November 28, 2019
I can’t believe it’s been 16 years since my all time favourite Hindi film got released. Still remember I genuinely cried after the end and thus became a butt of jokes among my friends in school but I couldn’t care less. I’ve cried every time I’ve seen it. #16YearsOfKHNH— Ashu (@ashu048) November 28, 2019
A film that formed my childhood. A film that has made me understand everything about love. A film that made me feel everything I do. A film that introduced me to SRK. ThankYou for gifting us with this gem.#ShahRukhKhan #KalHoNaaHo #16YearsOfKalHoNaaHo https://t.co/IeNYsurOyO— Rhea (@Rhea1537) November 28, 2019
