Akash, Sameer, Siddharth These names were synonymous with friendship. Through their schooling, their college days they were regarded by all who knew them, as inseparable. Nothing could come between them. Until something did . This is where the story of Dil Chahta Hai begins. AKASH (Aamir Khan) is a non believer. He thinks the whole concept of love is created to ruin perfectly healthy two week long relationships. He has been heard saying and we quote "Woh do hafte bhi zyaada the." SAMEER (Saif Ali Khan) is a believer. He wants to be in love. He loves being in love. Unfortunately for him though, he hasn't quite grasped the concept of it just yet. Wearing his heart on his sleeve, he is out there persevering, believing that he will find that "special her." as long he keeps looking. SIDDHARTH (Akshaya Khanna) just is. Mature, sensitive and understanding , Siddharth a.k.s. Sid knows the true meaning of the word. He feels it everyday, every hour, every minute, He has, in a manner of speaking, attained modern day enlightenment. DIL CHAHTA HAI is a film about these three distinct characters, their individual relationships and the effect that those relationships have on their friendship.
