On the 10th anniversary of her 2010 film My Name Is Khan, which also starred Shah Rukh Khan in the main role, Kajol recalled the time when “everyone laughed and congratulated each other” after she “fell down” on the sets of the film, directed by Karan Johar. The actress, in an exclusive interview to Hindustan Times, revealed a hilarious story from her My Name Is Khan shoot diaries and we bet it will leave you in splits. When asked how Karan Johar has always jokingly connected her falling down on his film’s sets with his film’s good luck, Kajol said: “It happened with this one (My Name Is Khan) too, nobody came forward to help me because as I fell down, everyone was laughing and congratulating each other.”
“I was sitting on the steps all by myself after falling down and after five minutes, Mickey Contractor (make-up artist) was like, ‘Baby, I’ll help you.’ I replied, ‘Don’t you think that it’s nasty, that for five minutes you all were clapping your hands while I fell down on my butt?” added Kajol.
My Name Is Khan still remains one of the critically acclaimed films of Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, who teamed up after nine years for this movie. Marking 10 years of My Name Is Khan on social media, Kajol shared a post. The montage made of clips from the film feature Kajol, Shah Rukh Khan and Karan Johar chilling together on the sets of My Name Is Khan.
Sharing the post, Kajol wrote about some of her “favourite memories” related to the film. She captioned the clip: “So many memories. So much fun, from Nysa’s first Disney trip to seeing the history of San Francisco up close and personal with the most amazing sunrise. It will always be one of my most favourite memories! #10YearsOfMyNameIsKhan.”
