Dil Chahta Hai is considered to be one of the most iconic movies to have emerged from the Indian subcontinent. Written and directed by Farhan Akhtar, the coming-of-age romance film focused on a significant transition period in the romantic lives of three college-graduate friends played by Aamir Khan, Saif Ali Khan, and Akshaye Khanna. It also featured Preity Zinta, Sonali Kulkarni, and Dimple Kapadia.
Critically, Dil Chahta Hai garnered positive reviews, with some believing that it broke new ground by introducing a realistic portrayal of Indian youth. Dil Chahta Hai has received several accolades upon release, including two National Film Awards and seven Filmfare Awards.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Farhan Akhtar is back to his directorial chair with one of the most anticipated and big projects, Don 3. The film will see Ranveer Singh taking the Don reboot franchise forward after Shah Rukh Khan played the beloved character in the previous two instalments of the franchise. Fans of the franchise had mixed responses about the casting. While some held that there could not be a Don film without Shah Rukh, others pointed out that Shah Rukh had also faced similar criticism when he took on the role after Amitabh Bachchan and ended up nailing the character.
