We remember Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai as it gave us Hrithik’s debut and a bunch of real catchy songs, amid some good ol’ Bollywood cringe. Its storyline follows your average Bollywood masala. Hero dies, hero’s lookalike comes into heroine’s life, yada yada yada. You know the drill.
However, a Twitter user, Jackie J. Thakkar, refreshed the memory of an abandoned KNPH character, Sonia’s cousin/friend, Neeta. Whatever happened to her?
I spend a lot of time wondering what happened to Sonia's cousin Neeta after Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai. pic.twitter.com/yn4a5ZtF8a— Jackie J. Thakkar (@Juvenile_Jack) June 25, 2019
Imagine the level of tolerance she had for Sonia’s theatrics.
Sis tolerated Sonya’s mopey bitch aesthetic WHILE LETTING HER LIVE AT HER PLACE RENT FREE. Do you know how expensive rent is in New Zealand?! #CousinGoalz pic.twitter.com/hcU7XHTvPx— Jackie J. Thakkar (@Juvenile_Jack) June 25, 2019
She has your bacc, she respeccs, but most importantly she introduces you to snaccs.
If you have a cousin like Neeta who tolerates your constant whining over your ex but AND sets you up with snacc dudes like Raj, then you hold onto that kween and never let go! #BestWingmanEver pic.twitter.com/T87NgCNKNs— Jackie J. Thakkar (@Juvenile_Jack) June 25, 2019
Not inviting her to your engagement, Soniya? That was a real low.
As much as I love KNPH, it makes me livid that despite all her support, SONIYA 'I-ONLY-DATE-DUDES-THAT-LOOK-THE-SAME' SAXENA decided not to invite Neeta to her engagement. Matlab she introduced you to your man, have some fucking respect! pic.twitter.com/FoNDoiL13y— Jackie J. Thakkar (@Juvenile_Jack) June 25, 2019
After all these years when I rewatch KNPH, I am only rooting for Neeta and hoping that this goddess is out there living her best life. pic.twitter.com/1LUo0mqCEc— Jackie J. Thakkar (@Juvenile_Jack) June 25, 2019

Not cool, Bollywood. Can we just resurrect cool side characters like Neeta, who were nothing but supportive, but were abandoned by the plotline as soon as they served their purpose?
