Where did you watch this movie?

'Dil To Pagal Hai' is a emotionally-charged and ebullient romance that also delves into concepts such as fate, destiny, choice and control. It soulfully portrays the influence of feelings and emotions on our behaviours and actions. It is the story of Rahul (Shah Rukh Khan) who does not believe in love. He fails to understand how two people can spend their entire lives together. He is a choreographer who owns a dance troupe and expends all his creative energies on composing new routines. An integral part of his troupe and his life is Nisha (Karisma Kapoor) who believes that love is friendship and that one day Rahul will realise her silent love for him and reciprocate it. When Rahul envisions a romantic theme for a new musical, and Nisha, his regular heroine is unable to perform due to an injury, he is forced to look for another dancer to fulfil the role, and thus Pooja enters his life. Pooja (Madhuri Dixit) is beautiful, sweet, and an exceptionally talented dancer, who believes that there is someone who is made for her and that she is destined to meet that person. How will Pooja's entry into his life affect Rahul? Will his concepts about love be impacted? What will happen to Nisha's love for Rahul?

Trivia:
Actor Shahid Kapoor was involved in this movie as a background dancer, with the Shiamak Davar troupe.

The opening credits are set in a montage of loving couples. In this wonderful list, the seventh couple is Aditya Chopra and his then-wife Payal Chopra. The 24th couple is Yash Johar and his wife Hiroo Johar. The 26th and final couple is director Yash Chopra with his wife Pamela Chopra.

At one point, the film was also called "Tevar," and had Urmila playing Karishma Kapoor's role.

This was the first Bollywood movie to be shot in Baden-Baden, Germany, and in the German theme park, Europa Park.

The play Rahul and Pooja put on is called "Maya", which means "dream" or "illusion" in Hindi.

The term "Dholna" had all the viewers in the cinema halls baffled, except for the Punjabis. It is the Punjabi slang word for "sweetheart."

As of 2013, this remains the only movie to feature Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar together, albeit the latter in a short role.

In a scene where Pooja dances in an aerobics session, the song "Mohabbat Karle" can be heard. This song came from a Hindipop album released by Shiamak Davar, the film's choreographer (but who is also known for being a gifted singer).

Karan Johar designed all of Shah Rukh Khan's costumes.

"Dil To Pagal Hai" was the second-highest-grossing Hindi movie in 1997.

Shiamak Davar's debut as a film choreographer.

The movie was initially titled "Maine To Mohabbat Ki Hai".

The role of Nisha was offered to Raveena Tandon, Juhi Chawla, Kajol, Manisha Koirala and Shilpa Shetty, but they all turned it down. Ironically, Karisma Kapoor, who finally took the role, won the National Award. All the three actors were bestowed with Filmfare Awards for their respective performances.
