Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge is a blockbuster hit movie of Bollywood. But, the lead actress Kajol who won millions of hearts with her energetic and charming screen presence as Simran was not sure about a particular scene of the movie that it will be liked by the audience.
The ace actress revealed that she herself was not convinced that her act in the song will work positively. But she realized the scene had no problem in it only after seeing herself on the screen. Then only she felt that the part “turned out okay.”
The scene shows Kajol to drink Brandy in order to keep warm. Then, the song Zara Sa Jhoom Loon Main is picturized on her along with the male lead Shah Rukh Khan who played the role of Raj in the movie only to become the heartthrob of all the young girls. The song shows Kajol to appear woozy while Shah Rukh Khan tries to control her.
“There is one song where I wasn’t sure about how it would be taken on screen: Zara Sa Jhoom Loon Main. I didn’t think I looked drxnk at all, and I was like, ‘This is not gonna work. I don’t believe this myself.’ Because I’m a complete teetotaller. I don’t know what it’s like to get drunk. But fortunately for me, [that scene] turned out okay. It’s not as bad as I thought it was,” she said.
Veteran singer Asha Bhonsle gave her magical vocals to the song which became a hit just like the other songs of the film. But, behind the scenes story is that the actress was not experienced in getting boozy in real life and that’s why she was not confident about the execution of the act.
When she talked about the film later, Kajol shared that she loved every part of DDLJ except that particular scene. She thought that she didn’t actually look like a boozed person as she is a teetotaler. But, she also stated later that after watching the scene herself, she was impressed that she didn’t do that bad.
