On October 20, 1995, a love story called Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge hit the screens and every single thing about it -- from Raj and Simran to palat and phurr became a part of Bollywood lexicon.

In the years to follow, the tale of how an impish Shah Rukh Khan won over demure Kajol's grouchy daddy would inspire books, blogs and films to both -- intellectualise and parody -- the blockbuster's enduring popularity.

Whether you see it as a commentary on Indian parenting where Anupam Kher's liberal Pops' Ja meri jawani jeekar aa takes on Amrish Puri's conservative Bauji consenting to Ja jee le apni zindagi or a syrupy slice of opposites attract brought to life by SRK and Kajol's scorching chemistry, Aditya Chopra's depiction of the traditionalist NRI unwaveringly holding on to desi values and culture worked in its favour.

Twenty five years have passed but the world's obsession with Chopra's directorial debut shows no signs of slowing down.
