Kundan Shah directed the romantic drama film Kya Kehna in 2000. Preity Zinta plays the lead role of a teen mother in the film, which tackles the taboo topic of teen pregnancies and societal attitudes towards them. Saif Ali Khan, Chandrachur Singh, Farida Jalal, and Anupam Kher provide supporting performances. Today, the film marks the 24th anniversary of its release, and if you are planning to catch up on the film OTT, you can stream it right now on Prime Video and ShemarooMe (OTTplay Premium).

Kya Kehna's plot summary

In Kya Kehna, a premarital pregnancy and a brief affair with a rich playboy (Saif Ali Khan) rock a young college student's (Preity Zinta's) idyllic existence. Suddenly, she finds herself in the midst of a hypocritical world, utterly alone and powerless. In the face of an unforgiving society, will Priya give in to its demands, or will she fight for justice?


Kya Kehna, a super hit at Box Office India in 2000, went on to become one of 2000's highest-grossing Bollywood films. People referred to it as a sleeper hit due to its unexpected success.

Preity Zinta's perspective

Nearly 24 years ago, during the promotions for Kya Kehna, when Preity was asked about the film, she stated in an interview that it was a different film that people should see with their whole family. One won't see this kind of film in theatres very often, as the storyline is different. It focuses on female characters, and the film's protagonist, a girl named Priya, is someone she portrays.  

This film highlights issues affecting women in society and places a societal concern at its heart. This matters to the character on a personal level, and for her family, it's a problem. The film's director, Kundan Shah, has taken the problem home with him, and here they have the tale of a lovely family.
