A poem of love
Did You Know?
Yash Chopra had conceived the role of Chandni with Raakhee in mind. Though shorter in length than Sharmila's role, it was author-backed. Raakhee had no romantic songs with Khanna either. All the songs belonged to Sharmila. Raakhee was nominated in the best supporting actress category at Filmfare for her role. See more
Don't insult her!
What? A woman you've known for two days ranks higher than one you've known for five years?
Don't forget that I've only given you my name!
I know, but I'm human, not stone! I love you! I'm beautiful and young; what's in Sonia that I lack?
Sonia's my wife, Chandni!
