2. Puberty hit Sana Saeed (Anjali Khanna from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai) so hard, we're still reeling from it.

Fun fact: Sana made her mainstream, post-puberty debut in Student Of The Year where she almost distracted us from Siddharth Malhotra's banging bod.

3. Parzan Dastur (the silent Sikh kid from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai) may have grown up but he still isn't over the fact that, "Tussi jaa rahe ho?"

Fun fact: Parzan starred in a bunch of movies later but none of them took off. He's now working behind the scenes with Karan Johar.

4. Abhishek Sharma (Amit from Kaho Na Pyaar Hai) made us jealous by constantly stroking Hrithik's face.

Fun fact: The face stroking thing he was most famous for was actually lifted from the movie Face Off.

7. Hansika Motwani (Priya from Koi Mil Gaya) had to have had some help from Jaadu for this makeover.

Fun fact: Hansika is now a superstar in South Indian cinema. So much so that her fans built a temple in her honour in Madurai, Tamil Nadu.

8. Athit Naik (Shiv Kapur from Kal Ho Na Ho) has grown up and the world will never be the same again.

Fun fact: He's a filmmaker now and his short film actually got selected to feature in the Cannes Film Festival. NO YOU SHUT UP!

12. Ahsaas Channa (Arjun in Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna) literally had the most epic transformation ever.

13. Darsheel Safary (Ishaan from Taare Zameen Par) went from adorable child to douchey teenager real quick. As we all do.
