Dil Chahta hai ( Hindi, दिल चाहता है, Dil hai CAHTA, lit: The heart longs ) is a Bollywood film released in 2001.


Akash, Sameer and Sid are the best of friends. They spend almost all their free time together, and even their different characters can not change this friendship: Akash, the joker and brash leader who only like 2-week relationships because he does not believe in love. Sameer, who falls from a infatuation to the next. Sid, the sealed artist who seeks refuge for himself. Everything changes when Sid falls in love with the older years to Tara, a divorced alcoholic. This love that goes deeper than longing for closeness, means that Akash and Sid warp. A few days later Akash leaves for Sydney to conduct his father's company there. In this period of separate friendship are Sameer in love again, but deeper than usual and even Akash finds its counterpart in Shalini. Only Sid's love must overcome the resistance from outside and inside fighting, because neither his mother nor his love grew his love.


First, Akshaye Khanna to play the Akash, but jumped as the scheduled as Sid, Hrithik Roshan and even did not want the replacement Abhishek Bachchan, Farhan Akhtar had to fast for a replacement and found this in Aamir Khan, but not without the Lagaan star to be used as Akash and Khanna for Sid. Ultimately, this change proves as a great stroke of luck for the film, the lives of the magnificent main characters, especially Khan and Khanna.
