Board results are out now and the admission season has begun. No doubt Delhi University will be a target of many of the students. Apart from having that feel of art, fashion, swag and attitude, DU also has a connection with bollywood. Time and again our movies have captured the charm and beauty of one of India’s top universities.

From the Haryanvi athlete ‘Kusum’ of Ramjas College (Kangana Ranaut’s character in Tanu Weds Manu Returns) to the sophisticated ‘Heer’ of St. Stephen’s College (Nargis Fakhri’s character in Rockstar), DU’s lifestyle has been fabulously depicted in many bollywood movies.

Here we bring to you a list of some of the bollywood films that have featured DU colleges:-
