- Kal Ho Na Ho clocked 15 years on Wednesday
- The film was directed by Nikkhil Advani
- Kal Ho Na Ho was produced by KJo
It wouldn't be wrong to say that Nikkhil Advani's Kal Ho Na Ho, featuring Shah Rukh Khan, Preity Zinta and Saif Ali Khan is one of the most loved films in Bollywood (the many posts prove that). As the film clocked 15 years on Wednesday, Preity Zinta, Karan Johar, Nikkhil Advani are reliving old days by sharing posts on social media. The first post, obviously had to be by the film's producer Karan Johar. KJo, who co-produced the film with his later father Yash Johar tweeted: "A film I absolutely loved writing. My father's last release... An immortal melody with an incredible cast and crew." In a separate post, Karan acknowledged the film's director and the entire cast and wrote: "Will always be grateful to Nikkhil Advani and the entire cast and crew for making the journey special. And the incredible SRK for making this film happen."
Kal Ho Na Ho would have been hard to imagine without Naina aka Preity Zinta. Preity who was the leading lady of the film shared an extensive post on her Instagram profile. She wrote: "Naina Catherine Kapoor till date remains one of my favourite characters! Had such an amazing time with my dear friends SRK, Saif Ali Khan and Jayaji! I can't believe it's been more than a decade and yet feels like yesterday ! A big thank you to Karan Johar for this incredible experience! This film will always remain close to my heart!"
