Yash uncle actually renovated and made new makeup rooms in Filmistan studios permanently just for the shooting of this film because even with the vanity vans it was not going to be enough for this gigantic starrer! @karanjohar collapsed and fainted on set because of dehydration in the first few days .. it was really really hot! And this was @__aryan__ 's debut on screen.. ! It was also I think my first comeback ( not sure about this part tho ) too many comebacks ago ) And the first and only time I stood in front of the pyramids and truly felt them with my soul.. so yes this was a truly HUGE film in every which way, in life and cinema!”
Karan Johar wrote, “My annual reminder of “It’s all about loving your family”…and my audience who have kept the spirit of #K3G alive even 22 years later. I am eternally grateful to the magnificent & magnanimous cast - Amit ji, Jaya ji, Shahrukh bhai, Kajol, Duggu and Bebo, and all other special people in the cast and crew for just making this journey the most memorable one! Thank you today and always.”
