Following in his lead, Farah Khan, who worked as a choreographer in the film, took to her Instagram handle to share a hilarious throwback photo of herself and Karan, presumably on the sets. “Mother of all throwbacks!! what were we doing?? #kank shoot.. thank god didn’t make @iamsrk n rani do this in the song.. @karanjohar to many more crazy shoots (sic),” she captioned the post.
Meanwhile, leading lady Preity Zinta also joined in and shared another throwback image of her own, which sees her laughing in the background as Karan hugs Shah Rukh. “Remembering KANK today – the film that broke my heart and my marriage on film.

‘Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna‘ that brought together an ensemble cast, revolves around Dev (SRK) and Maya (Rani) crossing paths while their respective marriages with Riya (Preity) and Rishi (Abhishek) are falling apart. The story follows their growing friendship as they try to help the other salvage their marriage. But, as we’ve all witnessed this tale ahead of its time, we know that Dev and Maya end up falling in love with each other instead.
