Director-show host Karan Johar criticized his own film "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai" and said that Shah Rukh Khan's character Rahul had no spine.

Featuring Kajol, Shah Rukh Khan along with Rani Mukherjee as the main roles, the 1998 film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai has always been amongst the best hits made by Karan Johar. The flick was released back in the late 2oth century and rose as the most iconic and unforgettable romantic drama until now.

In spite of that, on being asked what he thought about his own mega-hit, Karan Johar has some reviews that are quite harsh. The director lately picked holes in the movie and said its script was poor in sense.

Karan stated that the gender politics and ethics in the film have gone wrong and the role of Rahul (Shah Rukh Khan) is in fact flawed and spine-lacking, although the character has helped the actor garner lots of buzzes and huge fandom.

He said that as a character, Rahul is seriously confused. Anything that happened to Rahul was the consequence of the results from other characters’ actions. From his late wife Tina, his daughter who is 8 to his BFF Anjali, they were the huge catalyst to his story.

It was asserted by Karan that what gained the character’s value was the persona and charm of Shah Rukh Khan. Or else, it would have been nothing.

The multi-hyphenate celeb continued that the characters had no logic or backstory such as what they did to make ends meet and others. Even the 8 letters Tina (Rani Mukherjee) wrote for their daughter on each birthday were nonsensical.

Concerning fixes, Karan said if the movie were made this day, he would try to make it more human and real, adding showdown that the script of origin lacked.


About the deleted scene where Anjali comes down on Rahul telling him that he couldn’t speak for himself, Karan shared he would not eliminate it as part of the movie supposed that the film was being created now.
