  • Kajol spoke about the climax scene of the 1995 film 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaayenge'
  • The actress will next be seen in 'Helicopter Eela' which is slated to release on September 7

Who can ever forget the iconic climax scene from the 1995 film 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaayenge' starring Kajol and Shah Rukh Khan? The film went on to become a huge success and even 20 years later it is touted as one of the best romantic films of Bollywood.

The film revolves around the love story of Raj (Shah Rukh Khan) and Simran (Kajol). The two meet on a train, accidentally, and circumstances lead them to spend time together, eventually falling in love. However, Simran's father is a stickler for promises and to fulfil the promise he made to his friend of getting his daughter married to his son, they move to India. Raj, who was shown as a rich brat at the beginning of the film, turns into a new leaf when he falls in love with Simran. He goes to India and stays at Simran's house claiming to be a friend of the groom, but only to win the hearts of Simran's family so that they agree to their wedding. 

In the climax scene, Raj is seen beaten up at the railway station, after he plans to leave the city, after being rejected by Simran's father. Simran and her father also reach the railway station. And just as the train begins to move with Raj in it, Amrish Puri lets go of his daughter's hand and utters the iconic dialogue, 'Jaa Simran Jaa'. She runs towards Raj who is now stretching his hand out of from the door of a moving train. Yes, they successfully board the moving the train.

As romantic the movie might be, several had only one doubt over the years- Why did Raj not pull the chain to stop the train or why Simran did not climb into the first door she came across. 

In a recent interview with a news daily, Kajol let out interesting details about the train sequence. Talking about the scene, she said it was a hot day and everybody was getting cranky. She continued that the train was not moving at the right speed and the scene had to be done in one take as the train would take 20 minutes to come back after it leaves. Kajol finally admitted that Raj should have pulled the chain of the train, instead of making Simran run like a mad person. 

On the work front, Kajol is currently gearing up for the release of her film 'Helicopter Eela' which is slated to release on September 7.
