The Shah Rukh Khan, Preity Zinta, Jaya Bachchan and Saif Ali Khan‘s-starrer Kal Ho Naa Ho clocked 17 glorious year on Saturday. Directed by Nikkhil Advani, the film tells the tale of a girl named Naina (Preity Zinta), who discovered the actual meaning of life and happiness after meeting a man named Aman (Shah Rukh Khan). Sharing a clip from the movie, Preity Zinta takes a trip down memory lane as she wrote a heartfelt note on the special occasion.
Preity posted a clip from the film on her Instagram handle and shared that the Karan Johar production was probably one of the best-written films she has worked in. The movie made her laugh and cry in a heartbeat.
“Remembering Kal Ho Naa Ho today. A movie that made me laugh and cry in a heartbeat. An experience that went beyond words. This was probably one of my best written films. Thank you @karanjohar @nikkhiladvani @iamsrk, Saif, Jaya aunty and the entire cast n crew for making this film so memorable,” Preity wrote alongside the video.
Giving gyaan to her fans, she further wrote: “So folks the only gyaan I can give you all is – Aaj apni zindagi puri tarah jee lo, kya pata kal ho naa ho #17YearsOfKalHoNaaHo #KHNH#KalHoNaaHo #Love #Friendship#Memories #Ting.”
