The Double Premiere of Chandni in Mumbai and Delhi in 1989

Above, one of the few pics we have of the grand premiere of Chandni in Mumbai; Sridevi, musicians Shivkumar Sharma (and covered by Yashji) Hariprasad Chaurasia), producer and director Yash Chopra and Rekha. Legend has it Rekha was supposed to play the part of Chandni (was her name in the film Silsila) but Sridevi was chosen by Yash Chopra.

14 September 1989

Below, images of  the team during the film's Delhi premiere. Interesting to note that all eyes are constantly on Sridevi - who was clearly the superstar of the moment. Also, a surprising appearance of Anil Kapoor - who went on to grab the subsequent film of Yashji, the classic Lamhe.
