It has been 20 years since the release of Shah Rukh Khan-Kajol starrer Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge; and yet, it still commands a strong repeat value. The simplistic love story between Raj and Simran is what made the film memorable.

One of the longest running films in the history of Indian Cinema, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge completes 20 years of its release on 20 October 2015, and the celebrations of the achievement just got bigger since the film will be screened at the South Asian Gallery of the National Museum in Osaka, Japan.

DDLJ is the only Hindi film to be screened at the prestigious film festival which showcases the best Indian films.

The official website of producers of the film, Yash Raj Films states:

"The National Museum of Ethnology will screen DDLJ at the Indian Films Special Screening event with new Japanese subtitles as part of celebrating the renewal of its South Asian gallery as well as the 20th year anniversary of the iconic film."

Aditya Chopra's directorial debut Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge stars Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Anupam Kher, Amrish Puri and Farida Jalal.
