On the very special occasion of the 20th anniversary celebration Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (KKHH), the lead actor of the film, Shah Rukh Khan said on Tuesday (16 October) that initially, director Karan Johar narrated a 'crap story' but he signed the film because of the conviction of the director.
"I never listen to scripts, I listen to the heartbeats of the people I work with. Till date, I never understood a script. And I can say this with confidence that I never understood the script but the script maker or the filmmaker," Khan said in presence of the film's cast and crew and the media as part of the celebrations.
He went on adding, "Karan came and narrated an utterly nonsense crap story to me; which is certainly not the one that finally you people saw in the film. In his strange way Karan, the man with many words tried to impress me with his crap story. So yes, I really did not understand the story when I signed in and I am glad that I did not get into the story and just went ahead with the conviction of Karan, otherwise the film would have not been the way it came out."
From Kareena Kapoor Khan who manages to make time despite having her marriage anniversary party with family, friend and film director Zoya Akhtar, Ayan Mukerji, Neha Dhupia, Abhishek Bachchan, Shweta Bachchan Nanda, Twinkle Khanna to young actors like Janhvi Kapoor, Ishan Khatter, Varun Dhawan, Siddharth Malhotra, rapper Badshah among many others along with Karan Johar and the star cast of the film joined the party to celebrate the glorious journey of the film.
