Pooja also shared a series of throwback photos after Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahi clocked 27 years.
27 yrs of 'Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin' tomorrow and I stumble upon these albums bursting with photographs from back then,ravaged with time... those were the days the continuity photographer painstakingly captured each and every moment on set,numbered each image and delivered it to the producer in these mammoth albums that the producer then used to sell the film to distributors. We also used these albums on set to check hair,make-up & costume continuity as there were no monitors back then-and thank God for that as things were far more organic and we learned to trust our memories and instincts more,engaging fully with what went on in front of the camera! Looking at these photos today makes my entire being sing with memory...Guess am going to bombard you'll with my favourite ones and the ones I manage to salvage in the next 24 Hrs... so hold my hand,take my lead and walk down memory lane with me! #dilhaikemantanahin #DHKMN #27years #27yearsofdilhaikemantanahin #memories #photographs #frayedalbum #intactmemories #comeonthisjourneywithme #visheshfilms #MaheshBhatt #MukeshBhatt #Aamirkhan #poojabhatt #anupamkher #deepaktijori #praveenbhatt #anasingh #nadeemshravan #classicfilm #filmmaking #filmmakinglife #filmjourney #ajourneyintoawomansheart
