In the conversation with leading international entertainment magazine ShahRukh said, “What worked for Raj and Simran on screen was basically the pure friendship that Kajol and I shared off screen. It was all so organic that there were moments in front of the camera that we didn’t feel like we were acting at all. We didn’t really plan scenes. We just let them flow, and if we didn’t like something, we could just blurt it out to each other without any formality.”
Furthermore on the same lines Kajol also added, “I loved the script, from beginning to end. There was no part that I heard that I did not feel completely there, and present, and completely part of the film.”

Explaining the same Shahrukh told, “It was a set of friends just having fun with the material. Adi had a much clearer vision [of] where he was going with it and what he wanted to say in it. So the voices belong to us, but the words and feelings are all his, to be honest.”
In the same flow of conversation Kajol adds, “I think when Adi wrote the film, he meant it to show that families are the way they are everywhere. That’s what the film was about: embracing what the world has ahead of you, but don’t forget your roots.”
Shahrukh in the same magazine interview also measured the film’s success by saying, “This film came at a time when the audiences were getting more receptive to a story like DDLJ and a pairing like mine and Kajol’s.
