Amul’s Yash Chopra Tribute

Amul pays tribute to one of India’s greatest filmmakers, Yash Chopra, who passed away on 21st October. The advertisement has Chopra sitting under a tree, with the Amul girl who has a guitar in hand (reminds you of Katrina Kaif in one of the Jab Tak Hai Jaan stills?). Also notice the YRF logo on one of the books lying around. The tribute to the ‘King Of Romance’ also reads “Main har ek pal ka shayar hoon, Har ek pal meri kahani hai”.  Take a look!

SRK-Yash Chopra’s Darr: Title was suggested by Hrithik!

While watching a few videos of Yash Chopra on Youtube, I stumbled upon a video where Uday Chopra is in conversation with Yashji. The topic of discussion is Darr starring Shahrukh Khan, Sunny Deol and Juhi Chawla. Towards the end of the video (5:18 mins), Uday reveals a little known fact about the film’s title and inspiration. Apparently, it was Hrithik Roshan who suggested the title ‘Darr’ to the Chopra’s. In Uday’s words… Hrithik and me were seeing a movie, a less known movie called Dead Calm (Starring Nicole Kidman). We saw the video of the film and we decided to make Adi (Aditya Chopra) see it.  Just to show a very good film. Adi saw the film and he loved it instantly. That is the inspiration for Darr. Infact, the title Darr, is the title Hrithik had kept for a movie that he had actually made. An amateur film which he had shot. It was Hrithik’s title and when Adi decided on making this film, he told Hrithik that he will use this title, because it suits the subject. Pretty interesting, isn’t it? Darr is one of Yash Chopra’s best films and was a major break-through in Shahrukh Khan’s career. How many of you were aware that ‘Dead Calm’ was the inspiration behind the classic and Hrithik’s amateur film was titled Darr? Watch the video below (after 5:18)  

Shahrukh Khan on Yash Chopra

Shahrukh Khan, who has featured in four Yash Chopra directed film (Darr, Dil Toh Pagal, Veer Zaara and Jab Tak Hai Jaan), shared a close personal relationship with the late director. SRK took to Twitter to express his grief “Whenever my loved ones depart.. I feel a part of me extinguishes itself with them. Will there come a day.. that I will no longer have a bit of myself to let go of?”
