First film to show ‘Behind the Scene’

It was the first film in Indian cine history to produce its making as well. Technically known as ‘Behind the Scene’ since then. Aditya Chopra’s younger brother Uday Chopra was his assistant in the film who got the responsibility of recording the making. Uday became a videographer and recorded Behind the Scene footage. Later it was used in the promotion of the film.

Kiran Kher gave the title

The film’s title ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’ was played by Kiran Kher. This is mentioned by Aditya Chopra himself in the book ‘Aditya Chopra Relieves … Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’ published by Yash Raj Films.

-He had said, “Kiran ji will take this idea from the 1974 film Chor Machaye Shor”. When I heard this idea from him, I loved it and the title became final. ”

‘Overt scene’ inspired by American film

The film’s famous ‘overturned scene’ filmed on Shahrukh Khan was inspired by a scene in Clint Eastwood’s 1993 American film In the Line of Fire.

When Aditya saw this film, he remembered the scene of Eastwood in which the actor’s girlfriend is going and he asks her to turn.

Later in DDLJ, he inspired this scene and created a ‘overturn’ on Raj-Simran. It took Aditya only 1 month to write the script of DDLJ.

The signature leather jacket worn by Shahrukh in the film was purchased by Uday Chopra from a Harley Davidson store in California for $ 400.
