29 Years of Lamhe: Anupam Kher Shares Some Adorable Pics With Sridevi and Anil Kapoor
Yash Raj Chopra’s Lamhe celebrates 29 years today. The movie starred Sridevi (in a double role), Anil Kapoor, and Anupam Kher in the lead. Way ahead of its times Lamhe also starred Yash Chopra’s favorite, graceful Wahida Rehman in an important role. With a big star cast, the movie was expected to do magic at the box-office. But it failed miserably to fulfill the expectations.
Lamhe..a movie that was so ahead of its times..the movie will always remain a classic & definitely something I'll keep watching over & over again! And the work of the Legendary Sridevi Ji in this movie with you is a class apart..

However, years later it is now considered a classic and loved by the audience. To mark 29 years of Lamhe, Anupam Kher shared a few adorable pictures of himself with the late Sridevi and his best friend Anil Kapoor.
He penned, “Shooting for #Lamhe will always remain one of my most treasured memories!! Especially the medley song with #YashJi @AnilKapoor #WahidaRehman Ji, #SarojKhan Ji & the ultimate #Sridevi. You can watch the medley again & again & again.

Medley was one of the most entertaining sequences of Lamhe. Importantly, the exceptional timing and teamwork of Sridevi and Anupam Kher made it unforgettable.
Lamhe Had Everything That A Fan Expected From Yash Chopra Movie But Still Failed
Yash Chopra was known for bringing the beautiful locations of Switzerland and Kashmir alive on the screen. His heroines were stylish, glamorous, and sensuous. And the storyline romantic laced with wonderfully choreographed songs and melodious compositions.

Lamhe had all these things. The movie was exquisitely shot in mesmerizing locations of Great Britain and the dunes of Jaipur. The Morni baga ma bole aadhi raat ma song particularly depicted the beauty of dunes in Rajasthan and Ramgarh Palace, Jaipur.

As usual, Sridevi looked resplendent as Pallavi and the younger Pooja. For the first time, Anil Kapoor shaved off his mustache to ensure that he looked younger than Sridevi’s Pallavi. Lamhe had beautiful songs composed by the legendary duo Shiv-Hari and ultimate choreography by Saroj Khan.
This day 39 years back #Lamhe released. Except the box office collections, everyone considers this film a HIT ! This is easily one of @yrf landmark films…'FRESHNESS' is the word I associate with this movie…the UNIQUE story, @AnilKapoor in a new look & Sridevi's rustic beauty. pic.twitter.com/SpKj2JauyW

Lamhe still tanked at the box-office and it is believed that Yash Chopra was very disappointed with its failure.
