She confessed that she does not remember dates and was in fact reminded about her movie clocking 15 years today. She said, “I am glad that the film is still so relevant in today’s time. Dialogues are so iconic and it is one of the biggest hits of Shah Rukh Khan and Red Chillies.” She also shared that the Om Shanti Om team insisted on a reunion, but it will happen once the movie completes 20 years.
