@iamsrk we all miss your magic on the big screen!
I might have said this multiple times but, the comeback of @FarOutAkhtar on the directors chair & you reprising the role of Don will cause box office havoc!

On a related note, Shah Rukh Khan’s DDLJ turned 25. While SRK’s role as Raj in DDLJ is still considered one of his best, the superstar revealed that he was skeptical about his ability to pull off the romantic scenes in the ever-popular love story. “I was told by many people that I looked unconventional, very different from what the perception of a leading man was. I did feel, maybe, not being handsome enough — or, as they called it back then, ‘chocolaty’ — would make me unsuitable for romantic roles. Also, I am very shy and awkward with ladies, and I didn’t know how I would say all the loving, romantic bits,” Shah Rukh recalled.
“I have to admit, for someone who doesn’t like mushy and romantic films, the scenes Kajol and I did make me feel fuzzy and warm! There, I said it,” he smiled.
Released on October 20, 1995, the Aditya Chopra directorial, which starred SRK and Kajol, the film tells the love story of Raj (SRK) and Simran (Kajol) who live in the UK. The film kicked off the trend of NRI romances on the Bollywood screen, and also reorganised romance in Hindi cinema forever.
