Kajol in a still from Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge
Actress Kajol enjoys the fact that the audiences still remember her epic film Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (DDLJ) with Shah Rukh Khan and that the romantic saga lives again in the current lot of films.
If in the recently released Chennai Express, SRK's last dialogue was dilwale dulhania le jayenge, upcoming film Besharam, starring Ranbir Kapoor, too has a mention of it.
"I am grateful that everybody remembers it till today because it was very long time ago. So definitely it feels good (that the film is being re-lived in Chennai Express)," Kajol said here on Thursday at the inauguration of a child care unit.
Directed by Aditya Chopra, the 1995-release DDLJ is the longest-running film ever.
"That film (DDLJ) was special. That was a very nice picture. We made it with love. Fortunately for us, it turned out to be fantastic and well-loved film," said Kajol.
Meanwhile, Kajol wished all the luck to her friend and filmmaker Karan Johar, who is foraying into acting with Anurag Kashyap's Bombay Velvet.
Karan made his acting debut with a small role in DDLJ.
"I wish him luck. He is a fantastic director and I hope he makes as good an actor as he does as a director. We will see it with Bombay Velvet," said Kajol, who has worked in Karan's directorial ventures Kuch Kouch Hota Hai and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, among others.
On celluloid, 39-year-old Kajol was last seen in a special appearance in Karan's last year release Student Of The Year.
