SRK-Kajol recreate DDLJ magic on ‘Comedy Nights With Kapil’


The Shahrukh Khan- Kajol starrer romantic- comedy ‘Dilwale Dulhania Leh Jayenge’ released in the year 1995. It went on to become one of the most popular Indian films of all time. It was successful in International markets as well.  It has also set the record for becoming the longest running Bollywood film of all time. Almost 20 years after its release, the film is still running in Mumbai’s Maratha Mandir Theatre. In December 2014, the film will complete 1000 weeks run in the theatre.

The cast and crew of the film are planning to celebrate the occasion in a grand way. Since the film’s producer, legendary Yash Chopra has passed away, the occasion becomes more special. As per reports, SRK and Kajol are all set to appear on ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil’, one of India’s most popular shows to mark the occasion. A source close to the show has said, "The duo plan to shoot on November 30 at Film City. They will talk about the film and share their memories."

The episode is expected to be shot on 30th of November. Other actors from the film are also slated to appear. The source said, “In one segment of this special episode, the whole star cast including Farida Jalal, Mandira Bedi, Anupam Kher and Pooja Ruparel who had played the role of Chuttki will also be present."

The film’s lead actress Kajol who only acts sporadically these days, was supposed to shoot a special promotional video last week to mark the celebrations. But the shoot has been cancelled after Kajol accidentally injured her leg. A source close to the actress said, "She was at home when she sprained her leg and had to get a plaster. She has been advised rest for two weeks. She was to shoot for the 'DDLJ' promotional video and give interviews for the same."

However she will take part in the TV show and also the celebrations that are to be held at the Maratha Mandir Theatre on 12th December.  There have been some rumours that once 1000 weeks are over, the film will be removed from the theatre. But the owner of the theatre Manoj Desai said, "I haven't received any official intimation from the film's makers about whether they want to continue after the 1000 run is over. I don't know what the plans are. I have only been told not to screen any film in the 6 pm and 9 pm slots on December 12."
