Farhan Akhtar directed Dil Chahta Hai came as an impeccable refreshment in 2001. When the Indian audience had enough of the similar OTT Masala Films, this was pure entertainment. Often, people misread and do not understand the emotions of their friends. In Akhtar’s Dil Chahta Hai friendship of three best friends (Akash, Sameer, and Sid) come to a test when love set foot in Sid’ s life. Their conflicting personalities and approaches cause their TRIO to fall apart. However, after a temporary pause, they only rejoin with much more love.

Zeenat is a brave, independent woman who earns and feeds her family. Whereas, Meera is a common housewife who spends most of her time in her room and temple.
Dor is a film that tells you how two women from the opposite corner of the country and opposite behaviors can help each other grow. It tells you how beautiful and important friendship is. Also, how a true friend can save you in more than just one way.
