SRK-Raveena get back for old time's sake

January 19, 2004 14:45 IST

Shah Rukh Khan and Raveena Tandon in Zamana DeewanaThe promos of Yeh Lamhe Judaai Ke are all over Indian television. The reason the film is attracting any attention is because it stars Shah Rukh Khan and Raveena Tandon.

Directed by Ritesh Nayyar, the film has been in the making for a decade, and wears an old, dated look. Remember how SRK looked in Chamatkar or Raveena in Dilwale? Yeh Lamhe Judaai Ke is as stale as it gets.

Buzz was that the stars are probably making a special appearance in the film. A snippet in refutes these rumours. The director claims that SRK and Raveena are the lead players and not guest actors in his romantic drama.
