When Rahul is told about this, he tells them that he loves another woman by the name of Anjali Sharma. Yashvardhan decides to meet with the Sharma family, and finds out that they are middle-classed, unsophisticated, and will not be able to it into his family circle, as a result he refuses to permit Rahul to marry Anjali.

Did You Know?
The logo that appears on the helicopters in the movie is actually the logo for Yash Raj films but in the movie it was intended to be the logo of Yash Raichand's company.
Amitabh Bachchan is shown using a Nokia 9000 Communicator in 1991, whereas Nokia launched the same commercially in 1996.
Yashvardhan 'Yash' Raichand:
Elder's anger is a part of their love… my son.
A beautiful film about bringing families together
This film shines from start to finish, and runs the gamut of emotions.
The cinematography, sets, and costumes are brilliant. The sparkling
performances of six of India's leading actors alone makes the movie
worth seeing, even if some might not feel comfortable with the deep
sentimentality displayed by the leading men (women are fine with this;
American men sometimes find it unnerving). Hrithik Roshan is pure eye
candy for women of all ages, somehow oozing sweetness and innocent
sexuality at the same time. The catchy song and dance number he
performs with the lovely Kareena Kapoor at their 'prom,' "You Are My
Soniya," has gotten regular replays in this household for weeks (even
by my 79-year old mother, who will say, "I need a Soniya fix" – it
really cheers her up!). The other musical numbers are very enjoyable,
too, and never seem out of place or at odds with the flow of the film.
Shahrukh Khan is adorable, as always, as the favorite son, and can hold
his own in the dance numbers, too. Kajol gets to show her comic side,
and was great at it! And knowing that the 'parents,' Amitabh and Jaya
are a married couple in 'real life' just makes their interactions in
the film that much better. Don't miss this wonderful movie! If you see
just one Hindi movie, make it this one! (I am adding this question, for
anyone who knows the answer: I wanted to find out what actor played
Rohan at about age 12; the cast list shows three names for "Fattie" but
no further details for any of these actors. If you happen to know the
answer, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!)
