Did you know Shah Rukh Khan’s Kal Ho Naa Ho originally had an India-Pakistan connection and an alternate diary scene? | Hindi Movie News

Karan Johar might be garnering rave reviews for this magnum opus Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani, but one of his best known works remains the 2003 blockbuster Kal Ho Naa Ho, featuring Shah Rukh Khan, Preity Zinta and Saif Ali Khan in lead roles. The movie, a love triangle with a bitter sweet ending, is still remembered for its iconic songs, emotional moments and lead performances.

In an unedited version of the movie, there was a sequence that Naina(Preity) goes to a community centre for senior citizens where both men and women from India and Pakistan come.

Similarly, in the same centre, Aman (Shah Rukh) decides to read Rohit’s (Saif) diary to them, which was originally empty, but Aman made some things up, revealing his true feelings for Naina. When he finished reading, not one dry eye in the audience was seen. The scene later was refurbished and used in the original version. You can watch bits and pieces of the scenes here.

Coming back to RARKPK, Karan, in an interview with a leading entertainment portal recently revealed that he conducted multiple research screenings of the movie. He further added that he showed the movie to around 500 people before it released and made changes accordingly. Not only that, Nitin Baid, who he said is a genius editor, sat over the editing process for over six months, trying to make it crisper and tighter. Karan also added that they went through that beat since it was a tough film with many interpersonal relationships and individual tracks.
