Directed by Sooraj Barjatya and produced by Rajshri Productions, Hum Aapke Hai Koun..! released on 5th August 1994. It featured Salman Khan, Madhuri Dixit, Mohnish Bahl, Renuka Shahane, Anupam Kher, Reema Lagoo and Alok Nath, in key roles.
Recently, at an event, actress Madhuri Dixit Nene said if her 1992 film “Hum Aapke Hai Koun” released two decades later on the digital giant Netflix, it would have have been watched by even more people.
Asked what if “Hum Aapke Hain Koun…!” would have premiered 20 years later on Netflix?
“There are two magical things in the world. One is theatre or cinema and the internet. Netflix is a great marriage between these two. If we had the infrastructure that we do today, 20 years ago then it would have been great because even though ‘Hum Aapke Hai Koun…! ‘was very well received despite not having Netflix and everything it would have magnified,” Madhuri said.
