On the occasion of 22 years of Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, Kajol, who played Anjali in the film, penned a note and shared some anecdotes. Sharing a video on Instagram, she wrote, "Another acronym but yes another long lasting memory !!! 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!"

She added, "@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!"
