A movie that’s relevant even today. A movie that’s although 18 years old but relates to youth even today. A movie way beyond its time. A movie that was friendship, love, ambitions and life, all rolled into one. Happy 18th to our favorite, Dil Chahta hai. Suddenly feels old right. It’s just felt like yesterday when DCH released and life got one ambition – Goa trip with friends. Let’s take you down the memory lane to revisit Indian cinema at its contemporary best.

Who can forget Akash’s one liner and the amazing chemistry between Akshay Khanna and Preity Zinta? By the way, aren’t we missing our dimpled beauty on screen?


Who isn’t a fan of Dimple Kapadia? From her freshly blow-dried hair to her elegant sarees to her nude lip color, DCH gave us fashion goals way before nude makeup became a thing and blow-dried hair a fashion statement.

“yaa toh dosti gehri hai yaa phir photo 3d hai.” Who can forget Saif Ali Khan’s comic timing and the bird dance in Who ladki hai kahan? From giving sangeet song goals to acing the funny guy, Saif killed it like never.

Just when we thought DCH was all about fun and games, it taught us meaning of life in the most subtle way. It wasn’t just the trio, we grew up too post interval.

Here’s wishing the entire team of Dil Chahta hai heartiest congratulations on making a gem that is relevant till date.

P.S- can we have a sequel please Farhan????
