One of the superhit films, 'Koi Mil Gaya' is still a favourite of the people. As long as people still watch it on TV and see it, this film has completed 19 years. This film was released in 2003. This film was a tremendous success. The pairing of Hrithik Roshan and Preity Zinta was successful in winning the day of the audience, but actually, Preity Zinta got this film because of Shahrukh Khan.

Perhaps few people know that Preity Zinta was not the first choice of the makers of this film. Rakesh Roshan thought of two actors before Preity Zinta for the female lead role in the film. One of them was Aishwarya Rai. Aishwarya Rai's name was almost fixed, but later the makers felt that she would hardly be perfect for the role as Aishwarya and Hrithik are of similar age and it was imperative to see the age difference between Rohit Mehra and Nisha's characters.
The second name on this list, he had done many films with Hrithik and this name was none other than Kareena Kapoor, but after much thought, the director felt that it was more interesting for the public to see a new pair on the big screen. Will happen. After this, the makers were happy after seeing Preity Zinta in Shah Rukh Khan's Dil Se and they signed Preity Zinta for the role of Nisha.

Before 'Koi Mil Gaya', three other names of the film were kept. Earlier the title of this film was 'Koi Aap Jaisa', 'Koi Tumsa Nahi' and 'Kisa Jadoo Kiya'. Along with this, it is also said that many scenes in the film are inspired by the true events of Hrithik Roshan's childhood. Hrithik Roshan had the problem of stammering in his early life. Hrithik Roshan could not speak properly and due to this, his self-confidence was low. At the same time, the scene shown in the film where some children break Rohit's scooter is also inspired by his real life.

You will also be surprised to know that two climaxes of the film were shot. Earlier to the end of the film, Rakesh thought that magic would not return his powers to Rohit. However, later he felt that the film should be given a happy ending so that the audience would happily leave the film.
