Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge is one of the most iconic romantic films ever made in India. In fact, for many outsiders, this film is the first-word association with Bollywood. Featuring Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol in the lead roles, the movie is all about finding and fighting for your love.
Here are a few interesting details about the film that many people don’t know. One of the most surprising details about the film is Shah Rukh Khan was not being the first choice for the lead role, it was actually Tom Cruise.
Adiya Chopra wished to make a film that starred a foreigner in the lead. The conceptualisation of the film was also different, a foreigner arrives in Punjab and then falls in love.
However, legendary filmmaker and Aditya’s father Yash Chopra was not interested with the idea of having an international star in the film. It is also said that Tom had asked for a huge amount to be a part of the film, which was not feasible for the production house.
