Recalling the film`s release all those year`s ago, Ajay posted photos and admitted that he never imagined film would create history.

"22 years of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam; Salman, Sanjay, Ash & I knew we were making a super-sensitive film. Didn`t think though that it would create history.

The film was a love story of Sameer (played by Salman) and Nandini (played by Aishwarya). Ajay essayed the role of Vanraj, Aishwarya`s husband, who helped his wife to reunite with her lover Sameer (Salman) in Italy. However, the story took a turn when Nandini (Aishwarya) had a change of heart and decided to stay with Vanraj (Ajay) instead of running away with Sameer (Salman). 

The film also won several awards including National Award for music, choreography, cinematography and production design the following year.
