Kuch Kuch Hota Hai clocks 17 years!

Rahul and Anjali are back with Tina for company and we are mesmerised…all over again!

What do you remember about Kuch Kuch Hota Hai? The rap-style Raghupati Raghav Raja Ramor Rahul-Anjali ka jhagda? Or Kajol’s short hair with a hair band or Rani Mukerji’s short skirts? Or Salman Khan’s dashing entry? Well, we know it’s difficult for anyone who’s watched the film when it released to pick one moment that made it our favourite. KKHH is not a film anymore it’s an emotion now! And guess that’s the emotion which made Shah Rukh Khan share a really adorable picture of him squeezed between Kajol and Rani!


The picture has him having great fun getting kissed on both his cheeks by two gorgeous women, Kajol and Rani. There is so much warmth and love in that one picture that we just couldn’t get our eyes off it. But before we go further, check Shah Rukh’s message as well…

SRK is right. There are many memories attached to this film for us too. How many of you have wanted a Rahul or an Aman in your life? Or put yourself in Kajol’s situation and vied for by two handsome men? We all did and now it is 17 years old. 17 years of memory…17 years of Rahul and Anjali!! Sigh!
