Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge is a huge film for the Indian audience not just with respect to the cast or crew but because of the emotional depth and connect attached to the film.
As DDLJ completes 23years, SRK and Kajol took to Twitter to thank their fans for the unconditional love the pair received together.
One cannot deny the fact that DDLJ has played a key and instrumental role in shaping both SRK and Kajol. No wonder SRK had to thank fans for keeping the love and affection for Raj and Simran healthy and rocking even after a huge time period of 1200 weeks.
A special journey that began 23 years ago, goes on even today. Your love has kept Raj & Simran’s story alive on the big screen for 1200 weeks non-stop. Thank u for falling in love with us so unconditionally for so many years! #23YearsOfDDLJ
The tweet didn’t just receive love from fans but from SRK’s industry colleagues as well.
While SRK’s tweet humbled fans, Kajol’s tweet got us moving with the Raj-Simran chemistry.
1200 weeks and still running! thank you all for all the love that you have been showering on #DDLJ for so many years! It was, it is and will always be an incredibly special film for all of us. @iamsrk @yrf #AdityaChopra
