Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge was directed by Aditya Chopra and produced by Yash Chopra. It was released on 20 October 1995 and was shot in India, London and Switzerland.
DDLJ won 10 Filmfare Awards and also won the National Film Award for Best Popular Film. Not only this, it's the longest-running film (in Maratha Mandir theatre ) in Mumbai.
Did you know that Aditya Chopra initially wanted Hollywood actor Tom Cruise to play the role of Raj, as he wanted the film to be about a relationship between an Indian and an American. But Yash Chopra did not like the idea and told him to cast some Bollywood actor.
After this, Aditya approached Shahrukh Khan for this role, who said no to it as he thought the character is too girly. It is said that Aditya then convinced Shahrukh and said that he can never become a big star unless he becomes every woman's dream man.
Finally, after four meetings, Shahrukh said 'Yes' to play the role of Raj in Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge.
