The romantic movie went to become one of the highest-grossing films of the year and even won two National Film Awards.

In a 2007 interview with Mumbai Mirror, Anurag Kashyap told, “I too got the big offers after Satya. Karan Johar asked me to script Kal Ho Na Ho; I was asked to write Tere Naam, Jism. I refused. I refused Kal Ho Na Ho because Karan is the king of romance and I’m a realist. I didn’t want to have problems after taking up a project.”
