Mohabbatein (Hindi: मोहब्बतें, English: Love Stories) is a 2000 Indian musical romantic drama film directed by Aditya Chopra. It was Chopra's second directorial venture after Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and was filmed at India and the United Kingdom.
The film stars Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan in pivotal roles, along with six young debutantes. Aishwarya Rai appeared in flashbacks as Khan's lover. The film's soundtrack was composed by Jatin-Lalit, while the lyrics were penned by Anand Bakshi. The film is notable for being the first time that Bachchan and Khan appeared on-screen together.
The film went on to do well both critically and commercially. Despite being the second highest grosser of the year domestically, it was the highest-earning Hindi film of 2000 overseas, and surpassed Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai as the top grosser worldwide. It also won several awards including the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actor and the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor, for Khan and Bachchan respectively.
