It’s been 18 years since Dil To Pagal Hai released and became a ’90s classic, but one thing still bothers me. No, not the whole ‘Maya‘ fixation or the stupid ‘Valentine’s Day + Full Moon = Meeting Soulmate’ formulae they tried to convince us with. The thing that bothers me is why Rahul (Shah Rukh Khan) went with a girl as dull as Pooja (Madhuri Dixit) when he had the sassy, spirited and fun Nisha (Karisma Kapoor) in his life. Do you feel the same way? Amazing! You don’t? Check this list out.

1) They were best friends!

As Rahul says himself: Pyar dosti hai.

2) She’s a hottie!

I mean, who in their right mind would even have the time to look away from a firecracker like Nisha?! Who?

3) She loved him, like really really loved him!

As they say, if she says she loves you when she’s drunk… that means the love is true (or stuff like that).

4) Have you seen her dance?

She beats Madhuri’s ass in this song.

5) They have amazing chemistry!

Seriously, the fun and emotional scenes between Rahul and Nisha were the best scenes in the movie!

6) She’s a badass and an independant woman!

Someone like Rahul who gives shit to everyone needs a girl who doesn’t take any.

7) She dances EVEN when she’s injured!

To prove a point.

8) She knows him in and out.

Literally.

9) Pooja (Madhuri Dixit) seriously looks high AF most of the times!

As the wonderful Imaan Sheikh wrote in her hilarious accurate and honest summary of Dil Toh Pagal Hai, Pooja is actually smoking a doobie all the time!

10) Because Le Gayi Le Gayi!

She owns that stage – OWNS it.

These are my thoughts, what do you think about Dil To Pagal Hai? Should YRF re-edit this classic? (They should, they should.)
