Today marks the 28th anniversary of the beloved musical romance, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge.

The timeless film, which starred Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol as Raj and Simran, continues to captivate audiences and hold a special place in Indian cinema. Directed by Aditya Chopra, DDLJ is a cherished gem that has left a lasting impact.

In honour of this milestone, Kajol expressed her heartfelt appreciation to fans for keeping the legacy of the movie alive.

On Friday, Kajol took to Instagram and posted a video of herself in green attire as she recalled her iconic green lehenga from DDLJ,

along with the video she also shared the pictures of her lehenga displayed at the NMACC exhibit.

She wrote, “Still wearing green but maybe not the same shade.. 28 years later #DDLJ belongs to you guys… All our fans and people who have made it a legacy that lives on far beyond what we could have ever imagined. Big shoutout to all of you.”

Anupam Kher, Amrish Puri, Farida Jalal, Mandira Bedi, Satish Shah, and Pooja Ruparel were among the many other actors who starred in DDLJ. Additionally, the movie has been playing non-stop at Maratha Mandir in Mumbai.

The movie is widely regarded as a classic for various reasons, one of which is the introduction of the popular on-screen couple Raj and Simran, played by Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol respectively.

However, initially, Shah Rukh was hesitant to accept the role as he was not interested in the typical Bollywood formula of performing songs in picturesque locations and running away with the girl.

It reportedly took several meetings for first-time filmmaker Aditya Chopra to convince Shah Rukh to come on board, and the rest is history.
