karan johar, kuch kuch hota hai

If there is one thing quite special about Karan Johar and his films is that they always know what the audience wants. From 1998, since he made his directorial debut. to today, there hasn’t been a single film directed by Karan Johar that has been a failure at the box office. Currently, he is one of the biggest filmmakers out there and 24 years ago on this day is when it all started. Today, marks the 24 years of one of the biggest hits of Bollywood and the iconic Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and Rani Mukerji-starrer Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, and as the film turns 24, Karan got a bit nostalgic and emotional about it.
