It’s a celebration for all the hopeless romantics in the house as Kunal Kohli’s directorial Hum Tum (2004) clocked 16 years today! Known for its romantic plot twists and time leaps, the film featured Rani Mukerji, Saif Ali Khan, late Rishi Kapoor and our favourite animated characters, Hum-Tum in the lead roles.The film also fetched Saif his first Best Actor National Award.
An ahead of its time story with a modern take on love, Hum Tum came with a message that it’s not always about love at first sight and sometimes it takes more than one meeting to know that they are THE ONE.
#16yearsofHumTum always felt films will always have X years they complete. What’s the big deal. The big deal is if they survive the test of time & made a difference to cinema like #HumTum did. Thank you Adi for believing in it. We both know what we went thru to make it. pic.twitter.com/8k2Cg66EdF

As Hum Tum turns 16 today, here are some iconic dialogues from the film that are still relevant in this fast-paced, modern world. Also, Rani, you were right, “ladkiya ladko si nahi hoti!’
