Kajol took to Instagram to share some fun behind the scene picture of the shoot.
She wrote, “#14YearsOfFanaa. Bts this was pre-shoot. And as usual the film was quite different from what we read on paper. I still remember Poland and how much fun we had there. @_aamirkhan @kunalkohli @kirronkhermp #RishiKapoor @iamalihaji @yrf.”
When asked about why this film is so special? Filmmaker Kunal Kohli replied, “Fanaa is the first and the last film to date where both the actors were paired opposite each other. So convincing both, Aamir and Kajol, and having them on board for the film remains my best memory of Fanna.”
Kunal also revealed that Aamir was the person to insist on Kajol for the role of Zooni. “We went to Aamir first and when we asked him who he thinks would play the role of Zooni the best, he said ‘I will give you three names and that is Kajol, Kajol, and Kajol’,” shares Kunal.
In a Twitter thread, Kunal shared that the snow sequences were shot in Poland in temperature ranging from as cold to -27 to the warmest being -10 all this for a month.
The film had a phenomenal ensemble with performances by late Rishi Kapoor, Kirron Kher, and Tabu in supporting roles. Fanaa also remains the last movie where composer Jatin-Lalit collaborated together.
In an interview Kajol revealed that Aamir had asked Kunal Kohli to translate all the English dialogues in Urdu [the language his character speaks in the film]. Also the famous song Chand Sifarish by Salim-Sulaiman’s unmissable catchline ‘Subhaan Allah’ as suggested by Kunal Kohli himself.
After 14 years, Fanaa remains a classic tragic romance with the most heartwarming melodies of all time.
