#THROWBACK: Andaz Apna Apna holds a special place among millenials. The movie, which released on November 4 in 1994, is tagged as one of the best comic capers in Bollywood owing to its cast, iconic dialogues and fabulous performances.

The two Khans played the characters of Amar and Prem, respectively. Andaz Apna Apna is a comedy of errors where Karisma and Raveena exchange identities for groom hunting. While Raveena played a royal princess, Karisma played her secretary.

Shakti Kapoor’s Crime Master Gogo not just became one of his most memorable screen avatars, but also an iconic Bollywood villain. One of the high points of Andaz Apna Apna was its hilarious dialogues like “Teja main hoon, mark Idhar hai” that have become an integral part of pop culture in India.
