DDLJ turns 25 years old and we’re celebrating!

DDLJ is one movie that’s never going to get old for us. The movie that released 25 years ago today and still plays in a theatre in Mumbai an manages to win hearts of literally any age group. Starring the iconic couple Kajol and Shahrukh Khan, this movie till today gives you the feels and is used as references in situations of our daily life. And why not? The movie is relatable on so many levels.

Every 90s kid till today remembers all the dialogues of the film by heart because each of them struck a chord with so many of us perfectly.

Kajol who essayed the role of Simran beautifully and Shahrukh who played Raj and made girls fall in love with him shared this on their feeds, thus making us relive the magic of this timeless film! With heartfelt notes and dozens of memories, each actor came home with so many learnings and experiences. And, when you have the legendary Late Mr. Yash Chopra, who was known to weave magic on the screen, you expect nothing but pure unadulterated love stories that inspire the world even today!

 

Apart from the leads, the supporting cast of the film is celebrating this big day by sharing pictures on their social feeds and taking us down a nostalgic route. From Anupam Kher who played Raj’s super cool dad, Mandira Bedi who played Kuljeet’s sisters to Anaita Shroff Adajania and Karan Johar who played Simran and Raj’s friends respectively, shared some moments straight from sets of the film.

I was in college when Adi and Karan asked me to help them cast my college friends to play Raj and Simrin’s friends in the film. This was my introduction to the film industry- a world I knew nothing about at the time. In the process they convinced me into playing Sheena. I did it for a laugh and a paid holiday to Europe with my bestie, which was a really big deal for a broke student. I remember reaching Saanen, a small town in Switzerland , fresh off the bus ( ok plane) and seeing Shahrukh in his black suit on a little bridge …and for me I felt that he was there only for me! I’m sure whoever saw him on that bridge felt the same way – that’s why he’s Shahrukh. Kajol was just Kajol – real, instinctive, full of love (and still gives the tightest hugs ever). You have to remember that these were times when they were no entourages, no managers and mobiles, no social media…film making was much simpler, but extremely passionate. Once we were there, we were cut off from the rest of the world for over a month. We would all live together, eat together, sing together, dance together… we become a real family, under the warm gaze of a legend like Yash uncle (Yash Chopra). Adi knew DDLJ from his core, and strove for nothing less than perfection. We all hung out and helped each other in ways only close knit friends and families do. Never having any acting ambitions( thankfully), I’m so glad that I was part of this brilliant film and that I can still call everyone that I worked with a friend. I’m so happy to have been a tiny part of this massive legacy. #DDLJ25 #25yearsofDDLJ @yrf #adityachopra
