Kajol took to her Instagram account to celebrate #17YearsOfFanaa. The actor shared a never-before-heard anecdote from the sets of the movie. She revealed that out of her “oh so many comebacks”, her character Zooni from Fanaa will always remain special. That’s just because she got to play herself in the film sans her glasses.

And since we, her fans loved her memories, Kajol shared yet another fond memory from the sets of the film. In her caption, the bubbly actress reveals that on the first day of the shoot for a song, Poland was -27 °C. Wearing a thin chiffon salwar kameez on a frozen lake, she had to bear the cold winds and the low temperatures for the shoot.

On the other hand, her co-star Aamir Khan wore a “nice thick jacket” which he bought himself from a local market just for the shoot. The actor cheekily admits that Aamir Khan’s face didn’t have the natural pain which she had on her “frozen face”. And that’s not all, the cherry on the top was that the entire song was scrapped and reshot when they returned to Mumbai. Kajol then used this anecdote to salute women and heroines across the world who do such things and much worse just to look good on screen.
