• Devdas: “Babuji ne kaha gaon chhod do, sab ne kaha Paro ko chhod do, Paro ne kaha sharab chhod do, aaj tumne keh diya haweli chhod do, ek din aayega jab woh kahenge, duniya hi chhod do”.

• Kuch Kuch Hota Hai: “Pyar dosti hai, Agar woh meri sab se achchi dost nahin ban sakti,

Simple, pyar dosti hai”. Without any doubt, this movie has showcased the epitome of young friendship between Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol.
