Dilwale Dulhaniya The Jayenge is one of Bollywood’s most cult romantic films that remains a favorite among moviegoers. However, even this Shah Rukh Khan-Kajol star isn’t devoid of some nonsense audiences have thankfully ignored amid the love for the main couple and the chemistry they’ve created onscreen.
For starters, the hit song Tujhe Dekha Toh Jaana Sanam, rings a bell every time the hit Lata Mangeshkar and Kumar Sanu is played. But did you notice, while lost in the touching melody, that Kajol’s Simran was seen standing in a green field at the start of the song, but quickly ran into a field of adult mustard flowers to meet his Raj ? Well, maybe their love for each other was enough to increase the growing power of mustard cultivation, who knows?
Not only that, the story of the film moved to Punjab in the second half, but the climax scene was shot at Apta station. Apta is a small train station about 60 km from Mumbai where Simran ran alongside the moving train to be with his Raj after his Bauji told him “Ja Simran, ji le apni zindagi”.

Aditya Chopra marked her directorial debut with the 1995 film, produced by her late father Yash Chopra. Goof ups or not, the film rightly deserved the National Film Award for Best Popular Film Providing Healthy Entertainment which it won that year.
The film is such a success that even the current batch of young people continue to pay tribute to it in their work. Shah Rukh himself recreated his famous train scene with Deepika Padukone in the 2013 movie Chennai Express.
