Reflecting on the 25th anniversary of the movie Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (DDLJ) today, Shah Rukh Khan reveals that he never felt he could pull off the role of a romantic hero on screen.

Meanwhile, Shah Rukh Khan celebrated the silver jubilee anniversary of the cult classic by changing his profile picture to Raj Malhotra, the character that he essayed in the movie, while Kajol has updated it to Simran. And so is Shah Rukh Khan (SRK), who shot to fame as the King of Romance, and actress Kajol as among the most beloved cinematic couples of the 1990s.

"I was told by many people that I looked unconventional - very different from what the perception of a leading man was". Additionally, I felt I wasn't cut out to perform with any intimate sort of personality. It makes stalking seem romantic. "Also, I am very shy and awkward with ladies, and I didn't know how I would say all the loving, romantic bits", he said. "There, I said it!"

"It was one of those roles that I realised I can do with me using a version of my real self".

"DDLJ has belied that and I still struggle to make that one macho unconventional kick ass character which suits me, or so I thought". Well-known director, producer Karan Johar, who was a part of this iconic movie, also took to his social media handles to share a video and some throwback pictures from the film.

Written and directed by debutant Aditya Chopra, DDLJ shattered all box office records and is one of the biggest all-time blockbusters in the history of Hindi cinema.

DDLJ would go on to become the longest running film in the history of Indian cinema.

Beyond fresh storytelling, characterisation and performances, the film is also remembered to this day for the songs Jatin-Lalit composed. In the process they convinced me into playing Sheena. "They bring back memories of a film that shaped my path forward in an unforgettable way", Shah Rukh reminisced.

In her recent interview with a news daily, Kajol opened up about why the characters in the movie are liked so much and why they will be the audiences favourite even years down the lane.
