CELEBRATING 25 GLORIOUS YEARS OF DILWALE DULHANIYA LE JAYENGE
Dir: Aditya Chopra

I’ve lost count of the times that I have watched this film. Probably many of us would have by now. Dialogues, songs, scenes are known by heart and even now the last scene gives me goosebumps as the train chugs in, and Simran runs to her Raj.

A trivia read that Tom Cruise was initially supposed to be playing Raj. Thank heavens that did not happen. Imagine if that would have happened, would it resoundingly taste the kind of success that it has now? Maybe Not!

Precisely why DDLJ is such a special film. And coming from a banner that’s known to churn out the biggest romantic hits, YRF-Yash Raj Films. It’s only fair that Aditya Chopra took the legacy of his father, the King Of Romance – Yash Chopra ji, ahead with this one.

Despite the fact that there is nothing extraordinary about the film, except for the fact that it ended up boosting tourism in Europe and London, it still remains a very very special film.

There has been a lot written about the film over the years. But then if as a film lover, if this one’s not what you write about, then the love for film writing isn’t justified. Holds true to me at least!!

To the biggest romantic film in the history of Indian cinema. To the Mughal-E-Azam of the 90s, to the Sholay of the 90s.

Thank you Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Anupam Kher, Mandira Bedi, Parmeet Sethi, Jatin-Lalit, Satish Shah, Farida Jalal, Pooja Ruparel and the late Amrish Puri ji for giving India its biggest romantic saga!!
