The evergreen love story of Raj and Simran, ‘Dilwale Dulhahiya Le Jaenge’ has set yet another record by completing 750 weeks in theatre.
The film, which follows the romance of two NRIs who despite being madly in love refuse to elope, opened to full houses and rave reviews all over the world way back in 1995 when it was released.
It is the longest running movie in the Indian cinema and continues to pull audiences at the central Maratha Mandir theatre here.
The film was the directorial debut of Aditya Chopra and starred the Bollywood’s golden pair, Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol in the lead.
One of the biggest blockbusters of all times, DDLJ is presently running in its 15th year. The film is memorable not only for its plot but also for being a launchpad for Shah Rukh as the king of romance in the Indian film industry.
DDLJ, which is still remembered for its dialogues and soulful music, also gave one of the most evergreen onscreen couple Shah Rukh and Kajol, who later delivered many hits, the recent being ‘My Name Is Khan’.
