It has been 13 years since Karan Johar's Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna hit the screens. The film starred Shah Rukh Khan, Rani Mukherji, Preity Zinta, Abhishek Bachchan, Amitabh Bachchan and Kirron Kher in pivotal roles. It also had Ahsaas Channa- a 6-year-old girl who played Khan and Zinta's son in the 2006 film.

In an interview with Indian Express, Ahsaas, who has now grown up as a gorgeous girl, recalled the shoot of Karan Johar's directorial venture and revealed that the cast used to pamper her a lot. However, it was Khan, who took care of her on the sets.

"I was 6 when I worked on Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna. Everyone pampered me a lot. I had most of my scenes with Shah Rukh sir and he used to really take care of me. In New York, it was so cold, that he would teach us warm-up exercises so that we keep warm and face no difficulty while shooting," Ahsaas said.

"Any shot I use to give, he used to clap for me and encourage me. Even Preity Zinta was very sweet to me. She treated me like her baby even in real life. Abhishek Bachchan always came to meet me on the set no matter where he is," she added.

Talking about Amitabh Bachchan, the 20-year-old actor told daily, "I didn’t have any scene with him, but we were in the same hotel and met a couple of times. He told me I will go a long way and that remains with me."

Ahsaas, who made her debut in Bollywood with Sushmita Sen-starrer Vaastu Shastra in 2004, has also worked in films like My Friend Ganesha and Phoonk. She has mostly appeared in webseries and televison shows. Ahsaas Channa was last seen in TVF series Kota Factory, this year.

Directed by Karan Johar, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna hit the screens on August 11, 2006. The film, which recently completed 13 years of its release, dealt with the themes of adultery and extra-marital affairs. Shah Rukh Khan, who is married to Preity Zinta, falls in love with Rani Mukerji, who plays Abhishek Bachchan's wife.
