Kajol was initially offered the lead role in this movie, but due to scheduling conflicts, since she was already cast in Fanaa (2006), she had to refuse. She was originally going to play the role played by Rani Mukerji, and Rani was to play the role played by Preity Zinta. Therefore, Rani would have done the role that Preity Zinta ended up doing.

When Dev converts the penalty shot, the long shot reveals a player going on his knees, pulling his shirt over his face, with his bare chest visible. In the next shot, a close-up shot repeats the exact same thing - only this time the actor is wearing a vest beneath his shirt. See more »
an adorable relationship that was beautifully shot ..
I really don't understand how people can have so much hate against this movie. No offence, but i think some people over analyse movies way too much and try so hard to find meaning and concepts in the movie which aren't there because they weren't intended. Some people don't seem to 'understand' how Dev falls in love with Maya (vice-versa) or how they could salvage such love for that prolonged period of time after they separate from their spouses, and I think that's one of the stupidest thinks to not 'understand' if you are an avid Bollywood movie fan. There have been countless examples of such prolonged and unexplainable love in Bollywood movies in the past and it seems quite unfair to judge this movie badly for that aspect alone. I don't know if it seems highly improbable to the audiences around the world of how they continually keep on meeting each other, but it's another common example found in Bollywood films. Some scenes (I agree) could have been perceived better but the music (and accompanying scenes) I feel was beautifully sweet. The point is, Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna was quite a beautifully shot story of adorable love, and portrays challenges with marriage and love (although it has been done before and sometimes better) and with fair acting on some and excellent for others (I was highly impressed with Abishek's performance ^^). Appreciate it for what it was and (im saying the stupidly obvious but..) if you've found such unforgivable flaws then try and think how you'd fix them.
