Shah Rukh Khan, the Bollywood superstar, is known as the King of romance and he has proved it many times that nobody in the Hindi film industry can play romantic roles better than him. SRK has given many superb performances in movies and one of them is 2003 released romantic-comedy drama “Kal Ho Naa Ho” which was directed by Nikhil Advani and bankrolled by Dharma Productions. The flick also starred Saif Ali Khan, Preity Zinta, Jaya Bachchan and others in important roles.
It is being said that this film was inspired from the 1971 released Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan starrer “Anand” as “Kal Ho Naa Ho” showed Shah Rukh Khan suffering from a life-taking disease and eventually in the climax, he took his last breath but not before bringing two young souls together by making them fall in love.
In the movie, there is a scene in which SRK tries to make Preity believe that Saif loves her a lot and for this purpose, he grabs Saif’s diary and starts reading despite Saif’s objection. Though there is nothing written on the pages of the diary, SRK acts as if he is reading from the diary and expresses Saif’s love for her.
The emotional scene was loved a lot by viewers as Shah Rukh Khan was simply superb and he made everyone cry with his wonderful acting too because of which no one was able to notice a mistake. Though it was shown in the movie that Shah Rukh was standing while reading the diary but in few shots, it was seen that the diary was kept on someone’s lap.
Recently, a Twitter user noticed this error and pointed it out on the micro-blogging site Twitter with the photos. He tweeted, “SRK was so good in this scene that nobody noticed the continuity error in the close up of the diary. It is kept on someone’s lap even though he’s clearly standing.”

It was then revealed that this shot was taken from a deleted scene of the movie.
They included this shot from the deleted scene for some reason. 😂
