Hum Aapke Hain Kaun…! came out on this day 20 years back. Now that ought to make a lot of us feel old (#90’sKids). The film hit the theatres on August 5, 1994. If it wasn’t for HAHK, film like Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Kuch Kuch Hota Hain, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham wouldn’t have existed. The Salman – Madhuri starrer started the trend in Bollywood. This indeed is the most loved film in Bollywood, that’s still ruling our hearts.
Not many know that Hum Aapke Hai Koun..! was the first film to gross 1 billion worldwide. Yep, that’s true! A film that redefined Box-Office both at Indian and Overseas. The term blockbuster was first used for this film. Sit down newbies! HAHK, a film that inspired filmmakers to make film. HAHK, a film that gave us the first song of every antaakshari game ever played – Maye Ni Maye!, HAHK, Babuji aka Alok Nath is still young and happening! HAHK, a film which gave India it’s only world class Umpire, Tuffy. HAHk, a film that made every girl want Madhuri’s purple lehenga, the red frock, pink dress and the green and white set. HAHK, ‘UHU UHU’ who thought a cough would be so famous? HAHK, a film that pulled the family audience back to theaters when action, masala movies were trending back then…. Well, we can go on and on.. Whatever we say would be less.
