Starring Ajay Devgn, Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam emerged as one of the highest-grossing Indian films of 1999.
Today, June 18, marks 22 years of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. The emotional love triangle starred Ajay Devgn, Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and is still remembered by fans for its emotional roller-coaster script, music and extraordinary cinematography. Celebrating the big feat, Ajay took to social media to share few photos from the shoot of the film.
While the first picture has Ajay sitting with his director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, presumably checking a scene on the monitor. The next two are stills from the film, one with Salman and the other with Aishwarya.
The actor captioned the photo stating that while he knew they were making a super-sensitive film, he never thought they would create history. “22 years of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam; Salman, Sanjay, Ash & I knew we were making a super-sensitive film. Didn’t think though that it would create history. Humbled🙏🙏”.
