Deepika will be seen catching a train a la Kajol in the 1995 blockbuster.
"I got to live the 'DDLJ' moment with Shah Rukh," the actress told reporters at the launch of an eyewear's first ever Indian communication campaign on Tuesday.
If SRK's screen name in 'DDLJ' was Raj, he was called Rahul in another blockbuster 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai'.
"The fact that while growing up it is every girl's dream to romance Rahul and Raj on-screen, I got an opportunity to do that as well in the film," said the 27-year-old, the brand ambassador.
Deepika wishes to gift optical frames to Shah Rukh with whom she made her Bollywood debut in 2007 with 'Om Shanti Om'.
"I would give him optical frames because I know he wears specs. He wears reading glasses. I will pick something for him...That's something I can gift him," she said.
Directed by Rohit Shetty, action-comedy 'Chennai Express' is slated for a August 8 release.
