For Aditya Chopra’s debut movie in Bollywood, name of Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise has been considered. However, the director has settled in with Shahrukh in the end. Previously, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge has been conceptualized as a love story between a desi and American with Tom Cruise as the male lead. However, producer Yash Chopra has not been too enthused about it. Therefore, he has asked his son Aditya Chopra to work again on the script.
Character of Raj Malhotra has been born as a result. However, Shahrukh Khan has not been considered for this role at the very beginning. It is believed that Shahrukh has not been too keen about this movie as well. Therefore, Saif Ali Khan has been offered the role of Raj onscreen. For some unknown reason, Saif has denied the movie.
Now, Aamir Khan has been approached for this role. However, it has not worked out with the Dangal actor as well. Ultimately, the character has gone to Shahrukh Khan. In spite of his apprehension at the beginning, Shahrukh has said yes to the movie. Shahrukh and Kajol have come onboard together for Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and history is made.
Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge is one of the highest grossing movies of the year. Shahrukh Khan is still remembered for his role as Raj in this movie. Sizzling chemistry between Shahrukh and Kajol in the movie is to die for. The movie has won 10 awards at the Filmfare, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge has even bagged National Awards in the category of Best Popular Film that has offered wholesome entertainment.
