Twenty years on and we’re still as in love with Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge as we were when it first came out.

The iconic SRK-Kajol film which took the duo and Aditya Chopra to the heights of success is still the benchmark for romantic films in Bollywood.
And now, after two decades, the makers of DDLJ have decided to give fans a special treat by sharing a ‘making’ of the film featuring behind-the-scenes footage and candid interviews with the cast.
20 years on: A treat in the making for DDLJ fans
Even SRK couldn’t contain his excitement!

And the DDLJ Twitter page had a delightful surprise waiting for fans:
Released in a three part series, the ‘making’ reveals Kajol’s reluctance to shoot the popular song Mere Khawbo Mein Jo Aaye in a towel to Shah Rukh’s apprehensions of starring in a romantic film:
EXCLUSIVE! Re-live the eternal story of love. Watch the making of the BLOCKBUSTER! http://t.co/GaMERVXpAa #20YearsOfDDLJ

Here are a few interesting highlights:
– Kajol is a brat. She’s loud, she’s noisy, she’s too difficult to control. Adi used to get fed up, Farida Jalal wanted to kill her. I had to control her because I was her best friend. Her preparation is this nervous energy. Yash uncle used to call her pagli. But when the camera rolled, bang boom she was on: KJo on Kajol
– You will not find a better pair of eyes than Kajol’s: SRK on Kajol
– I never went to a film school, assisted in anything else. My only training ground as a filmmaker is Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge: KJo
‘Dilwale’ enters final phase of production
And of course, Twitter was flooded with #DDLJ love:
