DDLJ screened at prestigious British Film Institute

London, Nov 10 (IANS) Continuing its 20th year celebrations, “Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge” (DDLJ) had a special screening at the iconic British Film Institute (BFI) here.

It was screened as part of BFI’s “Love: Films To Fall In Love With… Films To Break Your Heart” in partnership with internet service provider Plusnet.

This special screening of DDLJ took place on November 7 at BFI Southbank, said a statement.

The BFI’s ‘Love’ season is currently celebrating a broad spectrum of romantic films and TV gems from the swooning silent era to the present day and the DDLJ extravaganza was featured alongside a wider curation of Hollywood melodrama, British period drama and European erotic thriller.

Aditya Chopra’s DDLJ, starring superstars Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, was showcased as ”The Brave-hearted Will Take the Bride” and was the only Indian title at the BFI screening.

As part of this screening, a nationwide search for Britain’s very own Raj and Simran was also held in conjunction with Asian TV channel B4U and BFI, to uncover a special ‘Raj and Simran’ jodi with their own unique love story against the odds.

The winning couple, Pahul Ahluwalia and Rahul Sharma of East London, were welcomed onstage and gifted with hampers of DDLJ memorabilia and collector’s item merchandise while they paid homage to the iconic screen looks of the film’s lead stars.

Also Shah Rukh himself regaled the audience and winners with an extraordinarily delightful and charming video message.
