Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge broke records in India for being the longest running Hindi film in a cinema. It reportedly ran for 1,009 weeks at the Marathi Mandi Cinema in India. DDLJ is the story of a free-spirited Punjabi man named Raj Malhotra, who falls in love with NRI Simran. However, there is trouble in paradise as Simran’s father (played by Amresh Puri) doesn’t approve of Raj.
Not only that, SRK and Kajol also recreated the famous image of DDLJ”s cover, in which Shah Rukh is carrying Kajol on his shoulders, even 20 years on.
