Yash Raj Films’ eternal classic Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, directed by Aditya Chopra, re-defined romance in Indian cinema. It is one of the most iconic love stories of all time. Starring Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol as the beautiful, innocent and loveable couple Raj and Simran, this Aditya Chopra film has gone on to make and break many records. Fondly called DDLJ by fans, the film is still running in theaters as it crossed 1200 weeks without an uninterrupted run at the iconic Maratha Mandir theatre in Mumbai.
Both SRK and Kajol took to their Twitter accounts to thank fans for the love they have showered on the film for the last 23 years:-
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
