Fondly reminiscing about those times, actor Prem Chopra said, “Kyun Uthe Dil Chod Aaye
brought me back by childhood days. It filled me with joy and nostalgia. Since, my family was based out of Lahore. I remember all of us used to go to Anarkali Bazaar in our neighborhood where we all used to go to eat chaat and play with kites. Also, how my mother used to cook all the delicacies for us.
I used to live in a joint family and since my Grandfather had three sons, he had allotted a floor to each of them in one building so that the family always stays together. Watching Kyun Uthe Dil Chod Aaye was like going down the memory lane. I just want to wish all the love and luck to entire team.”
