Did you know Archana Puran Singh’s character Ms Braganza did not hold a book in her hand while teaching Romeo and Juliet to students in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai? She actually held a copy of the 1996 film Romeo + Juliet, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes.

Karan Johar is known for his distinct way of making movies and is sometimes called out for taking cinematic liberties while making romantic blockbusters. While fans of his movies do not mind his art of filmmaking, there are a few who cannot resist noticing some peculiar things, and one of them was the book held by Archana Puran Singh’s character Ms Braganza, while teaching students William Shakespeare’s celebrated play Romeo and Juliet in the film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.

A viewer took to Reddit to share the detail he noticed while watching the 1998 film. The user even shared a film still for proof and wrote, “In Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, when Archana Puran Singh is ‘teaching’ Romeo & Juliet, she’s not holding a copy of the book, she’s holding a copy of 1996 movie, starring DiCaprio and Claire Danes.”

Almost speaking in defence of Karan, another Reddit user commented on the post, “Haha I noticed that. Since it was a then-recent movie that catered to a 90s-era sensibility, I guess it’s supposed to symbolize how ‘hip’ and ‘cool’ she was supposed to be lol.”

One more user wrote, “You know when a new movie based on any book comes out they sell promotional versions of the books with the movie poster. That’s what that is I guess. I might be wrong, do not overanalyse!”
