It will be a dream come true for Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma, as the two leading ladies are now confirmed to be a part of – hold your breath – an Yash Chopra film. Actually, its more than a dream for any Hindi actress to be a part of a Yash Chopra directed film as the legendary director, who is known for his romantic movies, always presents his leading ladies beautifully on screen.
In a press release on the Yashraj Films website, Yash Chopra talks about his upcoming film with Shahrukh Khan in the lead!
- On SRK – “Everyone knows that when I make a movie, Shahrukh will be involved with it. He is like family to Yashraj Films and I have always regarded him as one of my own.”
- On his upcoming film – “It’s been 7 years since I directed Veer Zaara (released in 2004) and as I begin work on my new film I hear my inner voice asking me a lot of questions. Are you sure you want to direct again, you are nearly 80 years old and the audience is getting younger day by day. Can I really speak from my heart and still expect todays youth to listen to me? Will I be able to live up to the blind faith that Shahrukh has in me and give him yet another memorable romantic film? Will I be able to inspire (A.R) Rahman and Gulzar Bhai enough to create their best work yet?”
- On Katrina – Anushka his leading ladies “Will I be able to present the beautiful Katrina Kaif and the very talented Anushka Sharma in a way they have never been seen before?
Without revealing the title of the film, he continues “I DON’T KNOW! All I know is that I’m making a film that I believe in, a film that is about love and nothing else. A film which has an old soul but a young heart. A film which is classic in its look but contemporary in its language. A film which I’m making on one simple faith… the love that my audiences have given to me over the years. They have tolerated my indulgences for the past 50 years, I’m sure they will indulge me one more time.”
So there you go.. It’ll be Shahrukh, Katrina and Anushka in lead roles. AR Rahman will be composing the music, Gulzar will be the lyricist. Yash Chopra obviously the director. Wonder if the Story is written by his son Aditya Chopra or by Yashji himself?
What do you think of the movie? Does Yash Chopra still have it in him? Did you like Veer Zaara?
