Meanwhile, actor Saurabh Shukla who played the role of Tom Uncle (Kim Sharma’s father in the film) believes Mohabbatein had the power to influence the millennials. “Mohabbatein is a very special film for me. Though I had a small role in the film, director Aditya Chopra was keen on casting me in a quirky yet humorous character of Kim Sharma’s father. I felt honoured when he told me that no one could have done this better than me. Over the years, I have been choosing characters basis the story of a film, and Mohabbatein had the power to influence the millennials. The film had a charm of youth and their eternal love, which is why the movie is still relatable to the present generation.”
Saurabh, who is known for his comedy roles in films like Mohabbatein, Pagalpanti, and Jolly LLB shares, “Humour is the part of everyone’s life. If you see my characters carefully, you will realise that they are very serious characters, be it in Mohabbatein, Raid, Pagalpanti or PK. I don’t try to create comedy with my characters, it is their interesting life that they go through which is fun and exciting. I don’t bring demarcation between serious and funny characters as serious people have funny moments in their life and vice-versa. I believe this is what immortalises the characters that I have been playing so far. Watch Mohabbatein on Sony MAX as it completes 20 years and fall in love all over again.”
