Kuch Kuch Hota Hai is definitely one of the most successful Bollywood movies of all time. With a stellar star cast – Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Rani Mukherjee – this movie broke so many records at the box office. While the movie received commercial success at the time of its release, in recent times, the movie has been criticized for its problematic portrayal. From the prevalent misogyny to sexism to toxicity, there have been multiple issues with the movie.
Endless Debate On Aman Vs Rahul: Who Was A Better Life Partner For Anjali?
One particular debate that has captured a lot of attention online is how Anjali chose toxic Rahul over Aman as a life partner. Many people have pointed out how not Rahul, but Aman was a better life partner for Anjali. Even, we also shared our thoughts on why Aman was a better life partner for Anjali than Rahul.
Even after being a supportive partner, how Anjali dumped Aman for a douchebag like Rahul is still something that we can never understand. We wish someone could have told Anjali that she was making the biggest mistake of her life and she will definitely regret it later. And, now even the actor – Kajol – herself agrees to what many people have felt.
Kajol: Should Have Gone With Salman’s Character
In an interview with Humans Of Bombay, Kajol agreed that she would have gone ahead and picked Aman as her life partner. However, there was no choice. While sharing her thoughts, she said,“On the script level, maybe I would have gone with Salman’s character, but in the film, if you watch the film, there is no choice about the ending, it has to be the way it is.”
She added that given the choice, she would never choose to wear traditional clothes and would instead stick to her iconic tomboy look. While talking about her makeover, she said, “My version of Anjali would never be wearing a saree. She would be wearing those track pants and fab, expensive sneakers with it and make that look good.”
