Every Indian girl has dreamt of bumping into Raj, on a train, sometime or the other. 

Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge is every 90s girl’s go-to romantic film and why shouldn’t it be? The redefined the rules of love and birthed a whole new generation of lovers.

While it’s been over two decades since the film’s release, we still can’t get enough of DDLJ

But, what if DDLJ was to be made with someone other than SRK? Would things have still been the same? Turns out, if some other actor played Raj, it would’ve been a totally different character! 

Check it out:

1. Salman Khan 

Simran would be wearing all of Salman’s shirts because Bhai likes it topless!

2. Ranveer Singh 

He would’ve acted like Anil Kapoor (coz there’s no bigger fan of Mr. India than Mr. Bajirao, you see!) and made Mogambo very naakhush!

3. Kapil Sharma 

He would’ve been sent back to London because of his misbehaviour on the flight.

4. Akshay Kumar 

He would’ve chilled with Babuji over a cup of chai and some heavy-duty patriotism.

5. Ranbir Kapoor

Simran would have had to take a trip to Manali instead of Europe, just to bump into this Raj.

6. Hrithik Roshan 

He would’ve made Simran catch a UFO and not a train in the end.

7. Govinda

He would’ve stolen chaat-masala instead of beer from Babuji’s store to make some bhelpuri for the raasta

8. Shahid Kapoor 

Who are we kidding? That’s only possible if Vishal Bhardwaj was directing the film.

We guess, SRK was the best choice after all.
