'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?
