do not hear of many movies from your end…
Mr Khan: 'I do not want to work on more than one
film at a time. Right now I'm set on finishing on my work
in Main Hoon Na as well as Kal Ho Na Ho.
both these films are completed I intend to start work on Ashutosh
Rai was supposed to play opposite you in Chalte Chalte?
Khan: 'Rani Mukerjee had heard the script almost a
year ago. But due to my back problem, when my schedules went
haywire, matching my dates with Rani's was difficult. That's

the first choice for the film'.
us something about the movie and the music of Chalte Chalte?

genre with the music of Chalte Chalte.
songs offer a variation in their music appeal and I think

it was Raj and Rahul and I guess between the names of Raj and
Rahul, I sometimes become Devdas too! I'm sure no one will name
Devdas back in my future movies!'
