23 years back, Yash Raj Films released one of the biggest hits in the history of Indian cinema, 'Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge'. Shah Rukh Khan, Karan Johar and Kajol starrer DDLJ released on 19th October 1995 and little did anyone know that it is going to be such a massive hit.
Bollywood’s most iconic love-story, DDLJ was released 23-years ago.
Veteran filmmaker Aditya Chopra marked his Bollywood debut in 1995 with a sweet love story of Raj and Simran. Set in London, Raj and Simran belonged to two very different worlds. Although, they never thought that they will fall in love with each other but they eventually do.
Bollywood King Khan took it to his official twitter account for postin about the same. SRK wrote: "A special journey that began 23 years ago, goes on even today. Your love has kept Raj & Simran's story alive on the big screen for 1200 weeks non-stop. Thank u for falling in love with us so unconditionally for so many years! #23YearsOfDDLJ.
