The Shah Rukh - Yash connection!
Yash Chopra, has been one of the finest film-maker that Indian cinema has. Known for his romantic movies, Yash has made over 50 films, in over 6 decades of his Bollywood career.
He has worked with popular actors like Shashi Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan, Shahrukh Khan, Hema Malini, Sridevi, Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla . But if we notice, we see that the common factor in his last 3 directorials, Darr (1993), Dil To Pagal Hai (1997), Veer-Zaara (2004) and his upcoming Jab Tak Hai Jaan, has been Shah Rukh Khan.
When asked about this on his 80th Birthday, which was on September 27, Yash said, "I cast him for his passion for films, and not his stardom." Till date SRK has never asked him about the script, his role or how much his fee would be, as he has always believed in Yash Chopra.
Stating that Jab Tak Hai Jaan will be his last directorial, Yash says, he will now guide the new generation aspiring actors in writing, directing and acting.
Looks like an end to Yash ji's romantic narration!
