The film went on to become one of the biggest grossers in 1995 and has catapulted Shah Rukh Khan as the quickest superstar officially. The film was directed by Aditya Chopra who was just 21 years and Karan Johar worked as the AD. DDLJ was run for all these days from release in Maratha Mandir of Bombay and each day an evening show for celebrating the lover story!
Shah Rukh and Kajol have starred together in films like ‘Baazigar’, ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’, ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’, ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ and most recently,’ Dilwale’.
Shah Rukh no longer hides his admiration for her. “Kajol is not technical, she is an honest actor and that’s a great quality,” he said at an event in celebration of DDLJ’s 20th anniversary. My daughter (Suhana) wants to become an actress and I would want her to learn that SRK ended.
Let’s see how the film unit plans this 25 years celebration!
