‘I think I’d break the TV’: When Gauri Khan once said about Shah Rukh Khan watching Hindi films

In the acclaimed docu-series The Romantics, Shah Rukh Khan decodes the formula that led to the incredible success of DDLJ which has been entertaining people worldwide for generations.

SRK feels Aditya Chopra was a genius in cracking the classic four-quadrant film that appealed to everyone, across ages, globally, and that too with his first directorial!

He says, “DDLJ kind of seeps in old values, but it is so wonderfully in a new bottle. The older generation, when they went to see this film, it was very easy for them to turn around, ‘see this is what I say India is’. And still, it was a very youth-oriented love story. Normally, love stories are Romeo and Juliet, where you go against the system, the family, you know, West Side Story.“

When DDLJ was released, such was the outpouring of love that people forced theatre owners to keep showcasing it despite the film running for years in cinemas! Maratha Mandir in Mumbai still runs DDLJ to date.
