As we all know, King Shah Rukh Khan has a huge role to play in the undying love of Indians for Switzerland, as his biggest and historical blockbuster ‘Dil Waley Dulhania Le Jayenge’ was also shot in Switzerland.


Even now, when you think of Switzerland, the iconic picture of Shah Rukh Khan posing amidst the snow comes up in the mind; needless to say, Switzerland and Shahrukh Khan are synonymous to each other for every Bollywood fan.


The two bankers, President and Business head-AU Bank-Ahmer Hussain and Vice President-Hdfc Bank-Nisha Hussain, coincidentally are life partners and die-hard fans of the superstar Shah Rukh Khan since their teenage,

are enjoying summer vacation with full fun and floric in Switzerland. We got in connection with the couple through cellphone and had an interesting chat.


Earlier this month, Ahmer and Nisha had flown down to Switzerland from Mumbai along with their children Arsh and Aashiya.


Ahmer shared with us few beautiful photographs from the vacation, the one shows recreating the song sequences ‘DDLJ’.


Another video clip however, caught our eyeballs as the bankers couple recreated the iconic train scene from the Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol-starrer ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’.

While Ahmer stands at the train’s door, Nisha is seen extending her arm to Ahmer in a bid to catch the train.


A significant part of the romance between Rahul ( Shah Rukh Khan ) and Simran (Kajol) unfolds in the picturesque villages dotting the Gstaad-Saanenland region in Switzerland. The narrow steeple of the St. Mauritius Church in Saanen features in the famous scene where King Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol pray together.


Also, the European journey scenes and songs were mainly filmed in Saanen, Montbovon and Gstaad, Switzerland.


So, Ahmer Hussain and Nisha Hussain successfully tried to recreate few more shots from the blockbuster DDLJ to make their vacation romantic and memorable.


Few of the scenes of movie were shot on the Interlaken promenade and you can catch a glimpse of the famous Victoria Jungfrau Hotel right before this scene in the movie. There is the fountain in the background where the scene was shot.

While doing the Interlaken to Lucerne part of the Golden Pass route, you may also spot the Lake Lungerer See, where a few scenes from the song “Tujhe Dekha Tou yeh Jaana sanam” was shot.


President and Business head-AU Bank Ahmer Hussain told Bollywood Reporter, ” This trip has become the most memorable one as we are big fans of Shah Rukh Khan since our teenage and all the places here are heaven on earth.”


Talking to us, the beautiful Vice President Nisha Hussain tells, ” We went to almost all the places where Mr. Yash Chopra have done the shoots, we also tried to recreate those memorable moments from the iconic movie, I thank my hubby for this trip because I had never felt such happiness, though we often go out on trips in vacations.”
