During a 1999 interview with Filmfare, Aishwarya Rai spoke about why she did not take up Karan Johar’s movie. She even told that the film “belonged to Kajol” and if she would had done the movie, fans would have said that she was doing the same thing that she did in her modelling days. The actress was offered the part of Rani Mukerji in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai but the former Miss World preferred to let that go.

“As far as Kuch Kuch Hota Hai goes, Karan Johar did approach me, but the dates he needed were committed to the RK film. Moreover, Kuch Kuch… belonged to Kajol. No two ways about that. Having said that, let me add that Rani Mukherjee did a terrific job,’ she said.

She added, “So if I’d done Kuch Kuch…, it would have been tittered that, ‘Look, Aishwarya Rai is back to doing what she did in her modelling days – leaving her hair straight, wearing minis, and pouting glamorously into the camera.’ Ultimately, the hero goes back to the more real person. I know if I’d done Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, I would have been lynched.”
