There is no breathing person in India who doesn’t get a Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge reference, irrespective of the generation they belong to and adding to the fans excitement today, actors Anupam Kher and Shah Rukh Khan made sure everyone relives the 90’s movie, scrolling through their online banter.
On Thursday morning, Anupam Kher took to his Twitter handle to post on Shah Rukh Khan’s profile. Sending his love from New York, where they had sot together for some chunks of the movie, Anupam shared a GIF of the two and tweeted, “मेरे प्यारे @iamsrk !! बस ऐसे ही!! न्यू यॉर्क में तुम्हारी अचानक याद आयी। (My dear Shah Rukh, Just like that, I missed you while here in New York.) We have had some great times together. And then we all grew up!! Love and prayers always. #DilwaleDulhaniyaLeJayenge” (sic).
Replying to the tweet, Shah Rukh wrote in his boyish character, that he essayed in the movie, “Arre nahi Daddy Cool! ‘Grow up’ hon aapke dushman. Hum dono ka dil to baccha hai ji. Come back home let’s start with snakes and ladders and we can move to making sand castles in the air. Miss you.” (sic)

On the professional front, Shah Rukh has been in the news for stepping out of Farhan Akhtar’s Don franchise due to the reason best known to him. As per the Mumbai Mirror report, the decision has allegedly made the producer of the film, Zoya Akhtar, reach out to his favourite star – Ranveer Singh. Earlier, another report surfaced stating that Farhan and his team are in the last stages of locking the final script post which SRK will indeed begin shooting for the film. However, nothing official has come out of the horse’s mouth yet.
SRK has also opted out of the much-awaited Rakesh Sharma biopic titled Saare Jahaan Se Achcha. It is believed that after the failure of Zero last year, Shah Rukh consciously decided to not take up another space film and therefore, moved beyond the Prakash Kovelamudi-directorial.
On the other hand, Anupam Kher recently made his digital debut with the Netflix thriller, Hotel Mumbai. Based on the 2009 documentary, Surviving Mumbai, about the Mumbai terror attacks in 2008 at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in India, the movie was directed by Anthony Maras and written by John Collee and Anthony. Anupam also starred in American medical drama television series, New Amsterdam, based on the book Twelve Patients: Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital by Eric Manheimer. In the show, which started in the fall of 2018 and aired on NBC, he played the role of Dr. Vijay Kapoor.
