The Hrithik Roshan and Preity Zinta-starrer Lakshya released 17 years ago on this day, and it was Farhan Akhtar's second film as a director. The actress went down memory lane to recall shooting for the film in Ladakh and called it her toughest ever.
Preity posted a snippet of the song Agar Main Kahoon from the film on Instagram. "Remembering Lakshya today -- My toughest film ever. Filming at 18000+feet in Ladakh was brutal and beautiful at the same time. I'm so proud of this film and everything it stood for (sic)," she captioned the image.
