Preity also shared an anecdote from her filming for Koi Mil Gaya. "I remember the first day of shoot, I was irritated that Hrithik was late and suddenly someone tapped on my shoulder, I turned to see and it was Hrithik in Rohit's look.

Rakesh on Koi Mil Gaya
Recently, Rakesh Roshan spoke about the film. As quoted by PTI, he had said, "The idea of making Koi Mil Gaya struck me one day when I was observing my granddaughter Suranika (Sunaina Roshan's daughter) watching a cartoon that featured an alien. I was instantly intrigued and asked her out of curiosity if she understood the concept and she explained the story to me. I was surprised that a kid her age not only understood what an alien was but also seemed entertained by the sci-fi concept."
