Javed said he didn't write for Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Kuch Kuch Hota Hai because he "thought the movies name was double meaning".

Asked why he didn't work on the film, Akhtar said: "I thought the movie's name had a lot of double meaning. I was not convinced to write for this project. 

"But I was all praise for SRK in Kal Ho Naa Ho'and I am happy I could be a part of the journey. I used the words I rejected earlier to make a more meaningful song which you all (audience) made popular called 'Kuch toh hua hai, kuch hogaya hai'."

The show is aired on Star Plus.
