'Tujhe Dekha To' became UK's favourite song, Shahrukh's 29 year old film made a record abroad

Aditya Chopra's film 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge' is fondly called 'DDLJ' by fans across the world. The song 'Tujhe Dekha Toh Yeh Jaana Sanam' from this film has been voted UK's favourite 90s Bollywood song by BBC. 'DDLJ' remains a blockbuster in the history of Hindi cinema which made Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol India's most favourite movie stars. 'DDLJ' is still the longest running film in the history of Indian cinema and is still shown every day at Mumbai's famous Maratha Mandir theatre. BBC's Asian Network invited people to choose the Bollywood song of the 90s from a list of 50 contenders. The station's panel of people, including Haroon Rashid, Nikita Kanda, Gagan Grewal and Nadia Ali as well as Asim Burney, Amrita Tanna and Karan Pangali, chose one of the shortlisted songs.

'You saw me and I knew you' became number one

It featured songs and dance numbers like 'Ole Ole' from the film 'Yeh Dillagi' and 'Baahon Ke Darmiyan' from 'Khamoshi: The Musical'. However, 'Tujhe Dekha Toh…' from the 1995 blockbuster film 'DDLJ' was declared number one.
