Although many of us have seen the movie a dozen times, how much do we really know about it? For instance, Kajol in the song ‘Ruk ja oh dil deewane’ had no idea about being dropped in the end by Shahrukh Khan and her surprised expression is as genuine as it can get. That’s right folks.
Where real life has seen historic tales of Romeo-Juliet and Heer-Ranjha, reel life was abuzz with Raj and Simran’s magic in DDLJ and the saga of this jodi has been hard to compete with by many filmmakers and stars. The title of the movie itself is a rave till date. So how is Kirron Kher even in the picture? Did Aditya Chopra steal the title from her? Well, you will just have to watch…
