Filmmaker Karan Johar's "Kal Ho Naa Ho" left many teary-eyed, thanks to the sad conclusion of the 2003 film. Now when he watches superstar Shah Rukh Khan dying on the hospital bed, Karan wishes the film ended in a different way.
The 41-year-old, who made his directorial debut with "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai" in 1998, admits that he made mistakes and conclusion of "Kal.." was one of them.
"Every film is a new mistake. When I see 'Kuch..', now I feel what a ridiculous story, when I see 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham', I think it is 35 minutes too long, 'Kal..', I wish I had changed the end..., 'Student of the Year', I wish it had more of emotional intensity. So, every film is a
new mistake," Karan told reporters post press show of "The Lunchbox" here.
"It was my father's decision to show him (Shah Rukh) lying on the hospital bed. I was ending it far more differently, but he said 'Agar bada star ho toh usko marte huye dekhna chahiye, audience ko rona hai', (if it's a big star, we should show him dying as the audience wants to cry)," said Karan, who will direct another film next year.

Actually, I think Kal Ho Naa Ho's ending was pretty great. It was poignant and gut wrenching. Yash Johar knew what he was doing.
And KG3 was alright. I do agree it was a little long, but honestly, it's a pretty great film, so a few extra minutes doesn't matter too much.
And SOTY was interesting. It definitely wasn't as emotional as his other movies. And it didn't make you get attached to the characters like his other movies did.
And KKHH, was also okay. Like the other poster pointed out, Anjali deserved better. The acting was the main thing in that movie, not the storyline.
i agree with him on 'kuch kuch..'
anjali deserved someone better. Not someone like rahul, who loved her only after she had a makeover.
Never once he acknowledged anjali's feeling when tina was around. If tina would've been alive, i'm sure there was no place for anjali in his future.
I was disappointed with anjali's decision at the end. In between this whole mess,i felt bad for aman's character only.

KHNH wouldn't be KHNH if it had a different ending..yes it was heartbreaking to see Aman die but I wouldn't have watched the film a hundred times if the ending was different
The only Kjo film that makes me cringe is SOTY. I wish Karan made more of family drama or intense love story films rather than films based on youngsters. He sucks at it!
