It’s a matter of time before Amitabh Bachchan’s God made his presence known as a hero in 1992, Bachchan was frozen at the box office, but his time as a main hero was about to end.

Aamir and Salman Khan had overthrown Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak and Maine Pyar Kiya, but they were not completely frozen. That is, the space between the new and the old, that space was empty.

It was then that newcomer director Raj Kanwar thought of making his first Deewana film with producer Guddu Dhanoya. With the then romantic hero Rishi Kapoor and the new sensation Divya Bharti. The other hero was Armaan Kohli. The film was released on June 25, 1992.

How did Shahrukh’s entry go?

Deewana Yun Toh is the story of Divya Bharti, a girl whose life is full of accidents and how life takes her in a different direction, sometimes with her will and sometimes against it.
