Be it the dialogues like 'Main Tumhe Bhool Jaun Yeh Ho Nahi Sakta Aur Tum Mujhe Bhool Jao, Yeh Main Hone Nahi Dunga' or soothing songs like Dulhe Ka Sehra, Dil Ne Yeh Kaha Hai Dil Se, Shilpa Shetty, Akshay Kumar and Suniel Shetty starrer Dhadkan is one of our favourite love-triangle films of Bollywood. Not only ours, even Shilpa's hubby, Raj Kundra revealed that Dhadkan is one of his favourite films of his wife.Â (Also Read:Â Anushka Sharma Reveals Hubby Virat Kohli Makes Her Happy, His Reaction Is Too Sweet To Miss [VIDEO])
It was in 1993 when Shilpa Shetty's career had skyrocketed with the film, Baazigar and since then, there has been no looking back for the actress. A mother of two lovely kids, Viaan Kundra and Samisha Shetty Kundra, Shilpa is living her âhappily ever afterâ with her munchkins and her husband, Raj Kundra. There hasn't been a single day when Shilpa hasn't proved that a womanâs life doesnât end at 40, and thereâs nothing in the world that a woman cannot do! Shilpa is an inspiration for all of us!
As Dhadkan completed 20 years on August 12, 2020, Shilpa Shetty Kundra penned a heartfelt note in her nostalgic mode along with a video from two decades back. Celebrating 20 years of Dhadkan, Shilpa captioned her post as "Celebrating #20YearsOfDhadkan Time flies... it truly does! Felt a rather strong wave of nostalgia when I came across this footage @lehrentv, took me back two decades. Cannot believe itâs time to celebrate #20YearsOfDhadkan feels so weird to hear myself speak from 20 years ago. So many memories come to mind... the trendsetting outfits by @manishmalhotra05, the biting cold shooting in Interlaken (Switzerland) in those outfits. My director, @dharmesh.darshan addressing me as Anjali on the sets (never as Shilpa), this is undoubtedly one of the most special films and a huge milestone in my career."
Revealing how her co-star, Akshay Kumar had said back then that even in 2020, the music of Dhadkan will be a hit and thanking the audience for making the film a memorable experience for her, Shilpa Shetty Kundra continued, "But, what I loved the most about the movie was its lilting music... timeless! Weirdly, even Akshay had said that this music is so melodious that it'll work even in 2020. Honestly, I can't believe that I'm still a part of this milieu celebrating this movie, itâs been such an incredible journey. Thank you to my audiences for making this one such a memorable experience."Â (Also Read:Â Kareena Kapoor Wishes Sara Ali Khan On 25th Birthday With A Throwback Photo With Abba, Saif Ali Khan)
On the post, Shilpa Shetty Kundra's husband, Raj Kundra revealed that Dhadkan is one of his most favourite films of his wife and congratulating her as the movie completed 20 years, he commented, "This is one of my most favourite movies from your collection...congrats. 20 years later and you looking even better than before! Damn I am lucky."
Shilpa Shetty Kundra had appeared on Romedy Now's The Love Laugh Live ShowÂ and had recalled her first reaction when her then-beau, Raj Kundra had proposed her with âjust 5-caratâ ring. Revealing how Raj had planned the proposal, Shilpa had shared, "He'd booked out the whole banqueting hall at The Grand. A bit OTT... he had like these violinists playing... He conned me into it, He said we are having lunch at a friend's place so dress up well. Not casually, just dress up well and my sister told me to wear red, so it was already planned. He told me from Mumbai we are going to this really cool place. I had no clue, but he had already asked my parents. So, the setting was all there and the cloche opened, and he did propose in the last course, dessert and it was this diamond ring."
If you had gone all awww over the romantic proposal by Raj Kundra, then Shilpa Shettyâs reaction will surely make you go ROFL. Shilpa had taken a while to say âyesâ because the ring, which was a 5-carat diamond, wasn't what she had imagined it to be. Shilpa had laughingly narrated the incident, "It was a 5-carat diamond ring and I might sound really materialistic here, but I was like it's just 5 carats. So, I took a while to say yes because I was like 'This is not what I imagined'. No no, I was just joking... So, he was like, because I took 2 seconds more, he was like, 'The wedding ring will be bigger', that's Raj for you. So, I said yes there."Â (Also Read:Â Shilpa Shetty Kundra Shares Hilarious Quarantine Journey With Family In Her 'Mood Calendar 2020')
