The blockbuster film Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, released in 1995, has completed 25 years. The film proved to be a milestone for the careers of Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, but did you know that initially both of them were not very enthusiastic about the film. Shahrukh refused to play the role of Raj but then how did he agree? Let’s know …

Shahrukh did not want to do a romantic film

According to film journalist Anupama Chopra’s book Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge: A Modern Classic, Shah Rukh was not keen on doing the film. He was also not happy with singing concepts on beautiful locales and then running away with the girl.

At that time, Aamir and Salman were also becoming lovers, gaining success on the big screen. In such a situation, Shah Rukh wanted to do something that made him feel that he was doing something different. Because of this, he refused the film director Aditya Chopra to play the role of Raj. Aditya gets upset hearing Shahrukh’s absence. He celebrated Shahrukh quite a lot.

Aditya met Shah Rukh several times and continued to celebrate for three weeks. At one point of time, Aditya had given up hope that Shah Rukh would say yes to him, so he started thinking about Saif Ali Khan for Raj’s character. During the shooting of Karan-Arjun, Shah Rukh finally said yes to Aditya for Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and then he appeared in Raj’s character.

Kajol found boring Simran

At the same time, when talking about Kajol, he initially found the character of Simran boring. In an interview, he said, “To be honest, at first I thought that Simran was a bit boring, but I recognized his merits. I realized that almost all of us have a simran somewhere in the corner of our heart that we know. There is always a desire in his mind to do the right thing. ”

“Many people are unable to complete every task correctly, but they definitely have the desire to do so.” You want to accept the same thing, you want to feel the feeling that your heart has accepted. You realize from the heart that you are doing something good in the world. “
