The cowbell was bought by Simran (Kajol) in Switzerland where she meets and gets to know Raj (Shah Rukh Khan). She leaves it at her door before leaving for India forever. When Raj arrives at her house in London, long after she leaves, he takes the cowbell as a sign and sets off to India to win over Simran and her family.

2. Mandolin

If you spot a mandolin anywhere the first tune that will play in the head of a Bollywood fan will be the tune of the iconic song ‘Tujhe dekha toh yeh jaana sanam’, which also happens to be the song which brought Raj and Simran closer to each other.

3. Sunflower field

This is where Raj and Simran reunite in India. Simran follows the tune of Raj’s mandolin and finds him standing in the middle of a blooming sunflower field and runs right into his arms.

4. Trains

The first time Raj extends his hand to a stranger who is about to miss her train for a journey that would change her life. The second time and in the last scene of the film, Raj once again extends his hand for Simran, but only this time he extends his hand to his better half.

5. Kajol’s green dress from the Mehendi ceremony

Manish Malhotra did his magic with Kajol’s costumes in the film. Even though the film was shot in the early 90’s, most of what Kajol wore is trendy even today. Manish Malhotra did not go for the conventional traditional costumes for the wedding festivities and made Kajol stand out in every attire she wore. Among them, is the green outfit Kajol wears for the Mehendi ceremony and for the ‘Mehendi Lagake Rakhna’ song sequence.

6. The flower prank

Remember the time, Raj innocently walks up to Simran and apologises but instead pulls out a flower prank. As soon as Simran accepts the flower, Raj squirts water on her face through the flower and runs away. While this is a very common prank, it was made all the more popular by DDLJ and will always remind you of the film.

7. Pigeons

Well, in all honesty the pigeons deserve special credit. Raj’s way of making a place into Baldev Singh aka Amrish Puri’s heart was spending time with him feeding the pigeons. Both Baldev Singh and Raj invite the pigeons by saying ‘Aao Aao’ while throwing the bird seeds dressed in white kurta pajama.
