Shah Rukh Khan’s character in Kal Ho Naa Ho was believed to be inspired from Rajesh Khanna’s character, Anand Saigal from Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Anand (1971). In both films, the protagonist is depicted living life to the fullest despite being diagnosed with a terminal illness.
The soundtrack album for Kal Ho Naa Ho was composed by Shankar Ehsaan Loy with lyrics penned by Javed Akhtar. Karan Johar sought legal permission to use Roy Orbison’s 1964 song “Oh, Pretty Woman” for the film. The track was remade in Hindi as “Pretty Woman” and became an anthem of sorts during its release. The tune of the title song, “Kal Ho Naa Ho” is believed to be inspired from Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On.”
Songs from the film, most notably “It’s The Time To Disco,” “Kuch To Hua Hai” and “Pretty Woman” are fondly remembered and played till today.
