A Guy Who Is A Best Friend To His Father

in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge except the fact that he (Raj's
father) told 'Fail Hona Ghar Ki Parampara Hai' and celebrated his
From A Flirt To A 'One Woman' Man
Raj was one flirty guy who left no chance to hit on beautiful
girls! But once he encountered the love of his life, he changed
hismelf into a one woman guy and there was only 'Simran' for Raj
In Spite Of Being A Spoilt Brat, He Knew The Word RESPECT!
There's no denying that the definition of love has changed and there're many relationships out there, which is a mere physical attraction. But coming to Raj, he never let his physical desire come out in front of Simran and rather wooed her with honesty & respect. (Remember that dialogue: "Main Ek Hindustani Hoon..Aur Main Jaanta Hoon Ki Ek Hindustani Ladki Ki Izzat Kya Hoti Hai")
Raj Didn't Choose The Wrong Way To Marry Simran
There comes a point in every lover's life, when family is

house went gaga over him!
Raj Showed Us That Men Can Fast Too
We don't find the idea of observing a fast for an entire day
quite romantic. But if we've a boyfriend like Raj, who also
observes the fast for your long life, then we might give it a shot!
Thankfully, Raj Was Unaware Of The Word 'Boring'
Don't we all want a boyfriend, who is a fun lover, a little
naughty and damn romantic? Raj had all that qualities and with
Shahrukh's charm, the character has made a special place in our
heart! *blush blush*
A Guy Who Calls His Girl With A Special Name
'Hey, Senorita'. Throughout the film, Raj called Simran with
