The media is abuzz with news that Aditya Chopra of Yashraj Films has decided to move on from someone, who is responsible for two of their only major successes (Chak De India and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi) in the last couple of years.
According to sources, Aditya Chopra didn’t take it too lightly when Shahrukh Khan couldn’t allot him bulk dates for one of their upcoming romantic films and has decided to move on and sign Ranbir Kapoor for the same role. (Could it be the same Yash Chopra directed film that we reported earlier today?)
Is it the right time for Yashraj to move on from SRK? We think so, here’s why
- Unlike industries from down south, Bollywood is an industry wherein over-aged heroes fade away quite quickly post 45.. the thinking behind this move could be the fact that SRK can no longer run around tress or play Rahul – Raj kinda roles. He is way too old for typical Yashraj romantic films.
- One other reason is, SRK isn’t affordable any more – most of his films in recent times have been produced under his banner Red Chillies Entertainment. In movies produced by other banners, he prefers to take a major share from the profit. Wouldn’t it be quite wise for Yashraj to rather invest in someone younger? The likes of Ranbir, Shahid or even Hrithik Roshan?
