Expressing his joy, Shah Rukh tweeted: “A special journey that began 23 years ago, goes on even today. Your love has kept Raj and Simran's story alive on the big screen for 1200 weeks non-stop. Thank you for falling in love with us so unconditionally for so many years!”

Earlier this week, Kajol had tweeted about the successful 1200-week run of DDLJ and thanked fans for showering their love on the film. “1200 weeks and still running! Thank you all for all the love that you have been showering on DDLJ for so many years! It was, it is and will always be an incredibly special film for all of us.”

DDLJ was produced by the late Yash Chopra and marked Aditya Chopra’s directorial debut. It became the highest grossing film of 1995 and won as many as 10 Filmfare awards, besides the National Film Award for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment. Mumbai’s famous Maratha Mandir has been screening the film non-stop ever since its release and still plays it everyday at 11.30 am.
