R Madhavan and Dia Mirza’s 2001 romantic drama Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein is a cult favourite. The film did not do well at the box office but won over the audience with the captivating chemistry between Maddy and Reena, played by the lead cast. The film also starred Saif Ali Khan in an important role and remains a crowd favourite even after 19 years.
As the film clocks 19 years, Dia Mirza took to Twitter to share an anecdote as she revealed that she was only 19 years old when the film released. She wrote: “I was all of 19 when this movie released. And for 19 years you’ve given us love. This one is very close to my heart.Celebrating this journey love #19YearsOfRHTDM #RHTDM”

Recently, there were rumours about the sequel to Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein. Responding to rumours, Madhavan who played Maddy in the film had tweeted saying, “# RHTDM ..Guysss ...been reading rumors about the sequel ...and hoping it’s true-cause I have no idea about this ....just praying that someone somewhere has an age appropriate script for Dia and I -varna ab madhav shastri banana hathi ko chaddhi pehnane ke baraabar hai. (Otherwise playing Madhav Shastri at this age would be a futile attempt).”
However, if the reports are true, fans are in for a treat as it will be exciting to witness R Madhavan and Dia Mirza’s chemistry yet again after many years.
