From ‘Stalking’ Simran To ‘Groping’ Her, Guy Points Out Raj’s ‘Problematic Behavior’ In DDLJ


It’s been 25 years that the iconic Bollywood movie ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’ hit theatres. Raj and Simran (the lead characters), portrayed by Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol made a special place in our hearts ever since.
