To mark its 20th anniversary, Indian cinema’s most celebrated love story, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, will witness a screening extravaganza at the iconic BFI Southbank London, as part of its highly anticipated romantic season – LOVE: FILMS TO FALL IN LOVE WITH….FILMS TO BREAK YOUR HEART in partnership with Plusnet.
The special screening of DDLJ will take place on Saturday 7th November, 2pm at BFI Southbank.
The BFI’s LOVE season, running from 19th October until 31st December, will celebrate film and TV gems, from the silent era to the present day.
DDLJ will be sitting alongside a number of Hollywood melodramas, British period dramas and European erotic thrillers. As part of the special screening, winners of a nationwide competition to uncover the UK’s very own Raj and Simran with their unique love story against the odds will be announced. The event will also welcome a specially-commissioned piece by Abolute Bollywood Dancers, who will showcase onstage some of the film’s most memorable songs as part of a medley of Yash Raj Films classics.
The National Award-winning film by Aditya Chopra changed the course of a nation’s cinema and became an unparalleled brand by establishing itself as the longest running film in the history of Indian Cinema.
Since its release in 1995, Indian cinema’s most iconic screen pairings – Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, have won over the hearts of all generations.
