Suniel Shetty, Shilpa Shetty and Akshay Kumar starrer Dhadkan was one of the hit films of that era. The love story was loved by all and is even fresh in every body’s mind. While Dev, Anjali and Ram entertained the audience till the end, the climax of the film was supposed to be something different.
While the film shows Anjali being pregnant with Ram’s child and Dev moving on with Sheetal, the original climax was a bit different. Dev was eventually supposed to die at the end after hearing the news of Anjali’s pregnancy thus giving justice to the dialogue that “Agar Tum Mujhe Chodke Chali Jaogi Toh Mere Dil Ki Dhadkan Ruk Jaayegi”. But everybody wanted a happy ending and so the climax was twisted.
Shilpa Shetty also revealed that the film took 5 years to complete and they never thought that it would get released. During the filming of Dhadkan, Suniel was busy with some other film and he left the film in the middle. The cast and crew thought of replacing Dev and even shot with another actor but the director was keen on Suniel playing Dev. Suniel later joined the cast again and the film was completed. Suniel received Filmfare Award for Best Actor In a Negative role.
Suniel and Shilpa recreated moments from the film on the sets of Super Dancer Chapter 3 as they danced on the song Tum Dil ki Dhadkan Mein. It was heart-warming to see both these Mangalorean buddies reunite after so many years.
