Yash Raj Films’ eternal classic Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, directed by Aditya Chopra, re-defined romance in Indian cinema, making it the biggest hit of all time in the history of Bollywood. Often referred to as DDLJ by fans, the film, which completed 23 years in October since its release, is still running in theatres.
