Trivia

It has been 20 years since the release of the film Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, and a documentary made to commemorate the occasion reveals some interesting trivia related to the film. In this documentary titled Making of DDLJ, Shah Rukh Khan reveals that he was quite apprehensive about the film and had almost refused it since he felt that his role was too "girlish". The charming actor also mentions that he was going through a low phase just before the start of the film, due to his sister's illness. This documentary also features several unseen footages and interviews of the cast. See more »

What an awesome movie!
29 October 2001 | by jENNA007See all my reviews

I'm sooo in love with this movie. Its way better than Kuch Kuch Hota Hai or any other Hindi film or ANY film in general that I've ever seen! It's that good! I just want to recommend this to everyone ESPECIALLY if your a Shah Ruhk Khan/Kajol fan, they are awesome together. The whole supporting cast does a great job too- Put together with the beautiful direction of Aditya Chopra they turn a simple storyline of uncliched love into a heartfelt movie you can watch over and over again. Oh, and did I mention the songs rock too!
