Besides Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge celebrating 25 years of its release, the day also marks the 25th anniversary of Yaraana. The iconic 'Mera Piya Ghar Aaya' song is remembered even today and we bet if there's any girl out there who hasn't aped its classic dance steps. The movie that starred Raj Babbar, Madhuri Dixit and Rishi Kapoor in lead is remembered for its songs and for some fine performances of course. Comedy king David Dhawan was the director of this project and while the movie is on the similar lines of Daraar and Agnisakshi, this movie is reminisced for being an entertainer. 25 Years of DDLJ: Aamir Khan Beautifully Describes this Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol Starrer, Thanks them For Making a Movie that Continues to Charm the World.

For the ones who don't know Yaraana opened in more screens than DDLJ. However, SRK and Kajol starrer went on to be a huge blockbuster and Yaraana, unfortunately, couldn't mint in the same success. Rest, as they say, is history.
