Is it 20 years already since Karan Johar made his first film? It seems as if it was just yesterday.

 

What if Karan proteges Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter were to star in a Kuch Kuch Hota Hai sequel?

Jahnavi could play the adult Anjali Khanna who runs into the Ishaan character and boom! Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.

Javed Akhtar famously turned down Karan Johar's request to write the lyrics for Kuch Kuch Hota Hai's songs because he thought the title was risque.

Neelam played herself in the film.

 

When Twinkle Khanna turned down Karan's invitation to act in the film, the director cleverly used Mrs Funnybones's real name Tina for Rani's character.

Siddharth Malhotra also made his debut in Student Of The Year.

 

Dhadak Director Shashank Khaitan -- who will soon start work on Rannbhhomi starring Varun Dhawan and likely Jahnvi -- with his wife Nalini Datta, whose parents celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary last week.

Zoya Akhtar -- who we discovered was one of Karan's closest friends when we watched that Koffee With Karan episode four years ago -- turned 46 on Sunday, October 14.

 

Punit Malhotra started his directorial debut with I Hate Luv Storys for Karan's studio Dharma Productions.
