Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge is considered one of Bollywood’s greatest classic. The story, Kajol and Shah Rukh Khan‘s chemistry, the songs and the dialogues are always included in every ‘greatest’ list written about Bollywood. Talking about dialogues, you remember the poem Kajol narrates to her mom before Mere Khwabon Mein Jo Aaye? Kajol’s introduction is one of the dreamiest ones we’ve seen in Bollywood.
But the original introduction wasn’t about love, dreams and a sexy boyfriend. This deleted scene, which was going to be Kajol’s first appearance in the movie had the actress taking a steam in order to lighten her skin. Her mom, played by Farida Jalal also tells her that all this steam will barley lighten her skin, and she’ll never really become as fair as the Queen. Check it out.
Good decision to stick to the poem!
