The post has garnered several likes, reactions and comments by fans, who shared the fondest memories they have about the film.

However, here are five lesser known facts about the Nikkhil Advani directorial, which went on to become a blockbuster at the box office.

1. Did You Know Preity Zinta Replaced Kareena Kapoor As The Lead In The Film?

The film was first offered to Kareena Kapoor but she declined the offer, and so it was later given to Preity Zinta. According to PTI, Preity said, “It was very special to me because I lost my first love. I was in love with him, he was not. I felt strongly when the film was offered to me. Some of the best things have happened to me during that film.”

3. Shah Rukh Khan Was About To Call It 'Quits' From The Film

Well, as per the reports, Shah Rukh fell very ill just after shooting for four days for the film and told Karan that he wouldn't be able to continue shooting the film. However, the film's director convinced Karan to wait for Shah Rukh to get recovered. The film's shooting was eventually resumed after a gap of six months.   

4. The Signature Kal Ho Naa Ho Tune Was Composed At A Bakery

The popular Kal Ho Na Ho title track tune was composed at a German bakery in Pune. Can you imagine? The reports suggest, Nikkhil started humming the tune and expressed how he wanted this tune to be part of the song and later on, Loy came up with the tune and recorded it on his phone. The popular trio Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy composed the music for the film.

5. Karan Did Not Direct The Film And He Regrets It

Turns out, Karan wanted to direct this epic film but he didn't. Nikkhil, the director of the film, told HT in one of his interviews that, “I don't blame him for regretting it. He wrote it from his heart. But, I think he underestimated himself, and he thought that he won't be able to do justice to it. Now when he says that, I feel his pain.”
