Karan Johar who made a debut as a director with the film, KKHH, decided to celebrate the 20 years of the film and threw an extravagant party calling in his dearest friends and starcast of the film. While Shah Rukh Khan, kajol and Rani Mukerji recreated the poster picture, Ishaan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor recreated the magical Rahul-Anjali moments.

Jimmy Choo sandals, sparkling earrings and wavy hairdo sweetened the scintillating style of the diva. Sangeeta Kumar hedge, the hairstylist did an excellent job with her wavy tresses. Mickey Contractor played it easy and refreshing with her makeup.
