It tugged at the heartstrings of the young, middle-aged and the old alike when it released way back in 1995. Even a thousand weeks after its run, Shah Rukh Khan-Kajol’s Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (DDLJ) continues to be “cherished” by youths, who consider it an “ideal love story”. While we all know it’s SRK and Kajol’s chemistry and Aditya Chopra’s stellar direction skills behind the phenomenal success of this film, but many of you might not know this that Salman Khan also has a teeny tiny role in the success of DDLJ. Wondering what are we talking about? Well the story goes something like this.

Shah Rukh, Kajol along with team DDLJ were on Kapil Sharma’s popular show, Comedy Nights With Kapil to celebrate 1000 week completion of the movie. And it is while having a candid conversation with Kapil, the King Khan made some really interesting revelations.

Apparently just before DDLJ was going to hit the theatres, everyone told SRK that this film is going to be a big flop. However, it was Salman, who always believed that the YRF film would go on to become a super duper hit. In fact, Salman even confessed to Shah Rukh that Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge will become bigger than the former’s film, Maine Pyaar Kiya, which was directed by Sooraj Barjatya.

Well, Salman’s good wishes have indeed worked for his foe turned friend and…how, no? Your thoughts BollywoodLifers?
