    Iconic romance ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’ honoured at IIFA, 2015

    The epoch-making Bollywood film ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’ was honoured for at the 16th International India Film Academy (IIFA) Awards for its 1000 weeks of successful run at a Mumbai theatre.

    The Aditya Chopra-directorial completed its 1000 weeks in December 2014 and is still running at the Maratha Mandir theatre.

    The film starring superstars Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol released in October, 1995. Shah Rukh and Kajol have always created magic on screen whenever paired together.

    In a tribute to ‘DDLJ’, the hosts of the IIFA Awards ceremony Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor enacted the climax scene of the legendary film, but with a twist. A lookalike of King Khan enacted Raj’s role while Ranveer and Arjun played Simran and Bauji (Amrish Puri) respectively, in the side-splitting enactment of the famous sequence.

    The trio’s performances sent an uproarious laughter among the spectators as they presented the film’s serious scene through the angle of current Bollywood filmmakers.

    Taking a dig at choreographer-director Prabhudeva’s action films ‘R… Rajkumar’ and ‘Action Jackson’, his section of the scene was titled ‘Any Rajkumar Can Be Jackson’. The title itself is a reminder of his 2013 film ‘Any Body Can Dance’ in which he acted. If he were the director, DDLJ’s ending would have had heavy one-liners like “Don’t Angry Me” and “It’s My way or Sky way”, according to the presenters.

    Next was the turn of Karan Johar whose films shows off designer wear. In his depiction of the film, Kajol’s Simran would have been more concerned about her lehenga than boarding the train with her lover Raj. Director duo Abbas-Mustan sequence of the movie was titled ‘Race Dilwalon Ki’, an obvious reference to their ‘Race’ franchise. It showed Shah Rukh turning into Saif Ali Khan, the protagonist of ‘Race’ films.

    Anurag Kashyap’s two-part film ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’, also suffered at the hands of Ranveer and Arjun. The director’s ‘DDLJ’ was called Gangs of ‘Dilwale’. The location was shown to be a rustic town of Uttar Pradesh and the film’s famous ‘Senorita’ dialogue was mouthed in Bhojpuri.

    ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’ is the longest-running film in the history of Indian cinema till now. It is one of the only three Hindi films in the film reference book ‘1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die’, along with Mother India (1957) and Deewaar (1975).

    Kajol and Shahrukh will once again sizzle the silver screen in Rohit Shetty’s upcoming film ‘Dilwale’.
