Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam came out in 1999. Wow that was 13 years ago, seems unreal. It was such a massive hit. The whole nation fell head over hills in love with Aish. She looked out of this world. Although I am not a fan of her acting skills, she did act surprisingly well in that movie. The second half when her husband takes her back to her BF was kind of unreal and Salman over acted big time at the ending, but all in all a great movie. I never gave it a thought if it was a story SLB came out with all by himself or he had some creative writers. Turns out neither.
