17 years of Kya Kehna: Preity Zinta gets nostalgic, Saif Ali Khan reveals why he doesn’t watch the film now


Kundan almost had a heart attack at that time, not directly related to her I hope, and she asked him, ‘Sir, how is the heart attack?’ and he said, ‘Very good,’”
Remembering some of the funny incidents from the sets of the film, Saif revealed that during the scene where he had to climb down a mountain, he got his black leather pants torn and his white underwear was visible through it. She talked non-stop throughout the film’s shoot. He said, “Preity was great fun to work with—so bubbly and energetic—she kept talking about her cheques and career. How time flies… what an unbelievable experience? Thank you #Kundanshah #Saif & #RameshTaurani #Anupamkher Ting?‬”

Saif Ali Khan also got nostalgic about the film. I think they printed it because they couldn’t get it again. Preity Zinta who played the protagonist Priya in the film completely owned her character as if it was written for her. Saif spoke about his experience of working in Kya Kehna to HT. In one of the scenes, my character says ‘haramzaada’, and they were like ‘we can’t dub that because it’s an expletive and needs to be changed.’ So, they changed that to ‘nawabzaada’, which is apparently as offensive as ‘haramzada’ in post Nehru India. I was hoping no one would notice,” Saif said in the same interview. But being a nawabzada at that time was quite entertaining. Saif Ali Khan as a rich brat also showcased the uncertainty which is prevalent in most of the teenage relationships, with perfection. Despite being a movie way ahead of its times, it managed to hit the right chord with the audience. The title had become a gaali.”
Saif also shared that he never watches Kya Kehna whenever it is aired on television as he feels he had a bad hair cut throughout the film. For all the latest Entertainment News, download Indian Express App now

As the film completed seventeen years on Friday, Preity Zinta shared a poster of the film on her Instagram and wrote, “‪#17yearsofKyakehna Wow! The director of the film Kundan Shah beautifully brought onscreen what was considered a taboo in the society. In 2000, Preity Zinta-Saif Ali Khan starrer Kya Kehna created a storm for its bold storyline, which talked about pre-marital sex and pregnancy. “We were shooting in Switzerland and I was giving a shot while rolling down a hill or something, and I tore my black leather pants and you could see my white underwear. He further revealed that he rarely watches his own films again. 2017-05-20T17:29:06+00:00″>
