'Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak' is, arguably, one of the landmark films in the history of Indian cinema. The film, which arrived thirty years back, gave Hindi cinema two actors in the form of Aamirr Khan and Juhi Chawla, who scaled great heights after the success of this film. The film is still remembered for its fresh music scored by Anand-Milind. Some of the most popular songs from the film are "Papa Kehte Hain", "Ae Mere Humsafar" and "Gazab Ka Hai Din". As the film completes thirty years of its release, we bring to you a few interesting facts related to it.

1. While most people are aware of the fact that Juhi Chawla had done a Hindi film ('Sultanat') before she stepped in 'Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak', most of them mistake it to be Aamir Khan's debut film. Aamir had made his acting debut in Ketan Mehta's 'Holi' in 1984. Years later, Khan collaborated with Mehta on 'Mangal Pandey - The Rising'.

2. Though 'Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar' was Mansoor Khan's second film as a director, he wanted it to be his debut film. He had the script of 'Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar' ready when his father Nasir Hussain handed him the script of 'Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak' and asked him to make the film for his banner. 3. The film was originally titled 'Nafrat Ke Waris' as it depicted the romance between two people who came from two warring families.

4. Juhi Chawla, who had a failed debut in 'Sultanat', had started auditioning for television shows and qas shortlisted for the role of Draupadi in B.R Chopra's 'Mahabharat' around the same time she was offered this film.

5. Mansoor Khan had shot an alternate ending for the film which showed the two lovers reuniting after defeating the villains. The entire team found it to be lacklste and hence, they decided to stick to the original ending.

6. Nasir Hussain was supposed to direct the film himself but due to health issues he decided to step back and worked on the film only as a producer.

7. Aamir Khan's then-wife Reema made a blink-and-you-miss appearance in the song "Papa Kehte Hain". You can spot her with Aamir at five minutes and twenty seconds into the song.

8. Kiran Deohans who made his debut as a cinematographer with this took a thirteen year old long sabbatical from films before resurfacing in 2001 with 'Aks' and 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham'.
