While today the film has become a favourite film of many, did you know that at the time of its release, no one thought that the film would work. Farhan AkhtarThis is his first film as a director.
Recently, during an interaction with Pinkvilla, the producer Ritesh Sidhwani He said, “When we started Dil Chahta Hai, we were 27 or 28 years old. I had no idea about filmmaking. I had never been to a shoot in my life. My friend wrote the script; I knew him, I knew what he could do, and that's how Excel was born.”
At that time, multiplexes were just coming up. So people felt that Dil Chahta Hai should have come a few years later. However, Ritesh said, “But I think it brought the audience to the theatres who were not coming earlier. There were distributors who saw the film. We very proudly showed the film to people who wouldn't show films, so we thought we are such big stars so let's call them and show what we have made and I think about 6 of them saw the film and left the film and said, 'This film will never work.' That's how Excel Distribution started with Anil Thadani.”
