Where did you watch this movie?

'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge' is a joyous celebration of all things Indian – our culture, traditions, rituals, beliefs, ideology – and basically, our entire way of life. It is also a youthful romance that depicts how far children can go for the love, approval and blessings of their elders. This romantic drama primarily revolves around Raj and Simran. Raj is rich, carefree, happy-go-lucky second generation NRI. Simran is the daughter of Chaudhary Baldev Singh, who in spite of being an NRI is very strict about adherence to Indian values. The two meet on a month long Eurotrip, and what began as pranks and fun and games, ends in love. But by the time they realize it, it is already too late, as Simran has left for India to be married to her childhood fiance. Raj leaves for India with a mission at his hands, to claim his lady love under the noses of her whole family. Thus begins a saga of love...

Come fall in love, all over again..
During the fight scene at the end, there are several instances where Raj swings at Kuljit and clearly misses, and yet Kuljit reacts like he has been hit anyway.

When Raj and Simran's mom had a word when Simran's Mom catches both of them she had a different dress and when she call them up in room and Raj had his conversation with her she has a different one.

Before the song "Tujhe dekha to yeh jana..", Simran is standing in a field of green grass. A shot later she starts running from a field of yellow flowers.

In the scene where Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol are stuck in the train compartment, Kajol's suitcase bursts open and she hurriedly stuffs her clothes back into it. When Shah Rukh sits on the compartment floor, there is clearly nothing behind or underneath him. But in the very next scene, he pulls out Kajol's bra from under him.
In 2001, "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge" overtook Sholay (1975) as the longest-running film in Indian cinema

Tom Cruise was considered for the role of Raj Malhotra.

Himani Shivpuri was scripted to be in the last scene of the movie, but her husband died during the making of the movie, which made her unable to participate.

Shah Rukh Khan's friends in the film, Karan Johar and Arjun Sablok, both later went on to become successful directors.

Saif Ali Khan turned down the role of Raj Malohtra.

The title name for this movie was suggested by Kiron Kher, wife of the famous actor, Anupam Kher.

Aditya Chopra had lots of trouble filming the scene where Raj (Shah Rukh Khan) jokes with Simran (Kajol) about the previous night. The reason was that every time Shah Rukh Khan would open his shirt, Kajol would not stop laughing. The pictures of the lips on the chest were drawn by Kajol.

When Shah Rukh Khan drops Kajol at the end of "Rukh Jaa O Dil Deewane," director Aditya Chopra did not tell Kajol what was going to happen, so that her reaction would be genuine.

Aditya Chopra named Shah Rukh Khan's character Raj after the iconic Hindi actor, Raj Kapoor.

"Mere Khwaboon Mein Jo Aaye" was the first song to be recorded. Aditya Chopra rejected 24 verses by Anand Bakshi, before approving this one.

Well known movie director Karan Johar, made his acting debut in this film, while she was also an assistant director for the movie, helping out debutant director, Aditya Chopra.

As of 13 April 2007, the film's initial theatrical release lasted 600 weeks - more than 11 years - a world record.

As of May 2005, the film played for over 500 weeks at the Maratha Mandir theater in Mumbai, India, making it the longest-running initial release in the history of Indian cinema. This is a few weeks more than Sholay.
