Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’s final scene is undoubtedly one of Bollywood’s most heartwarming and memorable scenes as Kajol runs towards Shah Rukh Khan.
However, in a recent interview with Huffington Post, Kajol reveals what went behind the making of the iconic scene. Kajol recalled that the heat was terrible and retakes were quite a feat considering the train would take 20 minutes to come back every time.
“Honestly, we were worried about the heat and getting cranky, my hair was frizzling out, the train wasn’t moving at the right speed that it should have. We couldn’t do retakes because the train had to go ahead and come back which would take some 20 minutes,” Kajol said.
She continued, “It was a mess. Actually, Raj should have just pulled the chain instead of making me run like a crazy person. In hindsight, of course, it’s become an iconic scene but I can’t take any credit for it. It’s all Adi (director Aditya Chopra).”
DDLJ is one of Bollywood’s most iconic films and it continues to charm audiences world wide.
