To which the Aarya actor told us, "It was my loss that's all I can say. It is a very nice and cult film and the fact is that, what was meant to be, was meant to be. It's one of those decisions you make and learn from that."

For the uninitiated, Karan had told on Zee TV's talk show, Yaaron Ki Baaraat about Chandrachur rejecting the role. He narrated the whole incident by stating, "I had thought of casting Chandrachur Singh in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai after three other actors rejected the role. I was told nobody wants to do the role and I was already stressed. So I went to give Chandrachur a narration and after the first day, he asked me to call him and meet the next day. When I called him a day later, he told me he would do the film and asked for a complete narration. I went all the way from Malabar Hill to Seven Bungalows and then, even before I could start, he refused to do my film. I just thought he could have told me that on the phone and saved my two hours of travel time."

Currently, Chandrachur has made his web debut with Hotstar Specials Aarya in which Sushmita Sen plays the titular role. The show streamed on June 19, 2020.
