This day, 27 years ago, came a film that will remain etched in our hearts. The film was Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin, which starred Aamir Khan and Pooja Bhatt in lead roles. Directed by Mahesh Bhatt and inspired by Frank Capra’s celebrated film, It Happened One Night, the film was a superhit when it released on July 12 in 1991.

Now, actor Pooja has shared pictures from the film. Posting a picture from the hit song ‘Galyan Sakli Sonyachi Hi Pori Konachi?’ and wrote: “We shot this hit song which appears in the beginning of the film at the fishing village in Madh Island. I wore a Traditional Nauvari Sari for the first time in my life and shared screen space with my buddy Deepak Tijori who made the shoot truly easy for me by taking me through the paces with such patience and generosity. We shot daily from 7am to 6pm in the sweltering sun with the entire village cheering us on. Those were the days where make-up vans did not quite exist so I got changed and ready in one of the Koli fisherwoman’s homes who was delighted to see me dressed in the traditional garb and fed me a delicious, Koli style, sea food lunch! #galyansaklisonyachi #DHKMN #27yearsofdilhaikemantanahin #maheshbhatt #mukeshbhatt #nadeemshravan #deepaktijori #poojabhatt #aamirkhan #anupamkher #anasingh #kolivillage #madhisland #traditionalgarb #nauvarisaree #downmemorylane #dilhaikemantanahin #ajourneyintoawomansheart.”

Wearing a traditional Nauvari sari, she recounted fond memories from the shoot--of the time when they shot the song in Madh Island’s fishing village, of how the entire village was out, cheering them at the sets, of how in those days their weren’t any makeup vans and how she dressed up in a Koli fisherwoman’s home and how they fed her to tasty sea food lunch.

Pooja also shared yet another photo, which was a still from another famous song from the film called ‘O mere Sapno Ke Saudagar’. Sharing it, she wrote: “... a song that defined my fairy tale idea of love... Shot in the forests of Ooty that were drenched with the fragrance of eucalyptus, it was a song rendered beautifully by Anuradha Paudwal...”

Still seeking! 😉 ‘O mere Sapno Ke Saudagar’ a song that defined my fairy tale idea of love... Shot in the forests of Ooty that were drenched with the fragrance of eucalyptus,it was a song rendered beautifully by Anuradha Paudwal. I had a distinct lisp then,traces of which still remain and Anuradhaji called me to her home before she recorded it and made me speak to her at length so she could incorporate my supposed speech setback into the song. Love her for that as she made me feel that it was actually a special attribute and contributed to what and who I was. My idea of an ‘ideal’ with regards to love and the supposed ‘beloved’ has evolved since then but I still am and will remain the last of the hopeful romantics... We ARE love. However many knocks we take,we should never forget that and to give up on it is to succumb to the dreariness and ordinariness of the world. So to all of you who have loved and lost,lost and loved,continue to still believe in the miracle & wonder of love and especially to those who choose outwardly to not believe,I whisper these lyrics of the song directly from my heart to yours- "Yeh Pariyon Ki Basti, Sitaaron Ka Majma Yahan Goonjta Hai Mohabbat Ka Nagma Yahaan Pyaar Ke Hain Diwaane Sabhi Chaahat Hi Sab kuchh Yahaan" #omeresapnokesaudagar #27yearsofdilhaikemantanahin #DHKMN #dilhaikemantanahin #somelovestoriesgetbetterwithtime #classicfilm #90sgem #lovestories #downmemorylane #celebrationtime #wearelove #maheshbhatt #mukeshbhatt #nadeemshravan #anuradhapaudwal #gulshankumar #aamirkhan #anupamkher #anasingh #poojabhatt #ooty #outdoor #filmmaking #filmmakinglife #musicisthefoodoflove #ajourneyintoawomansheart #❤️

Dil Hai Manta Nahin’s songs became just as famous as the film. Nadeem-Shravan, famous for their work in Aashiqui, was the music director duo behind the hit songs.
