The king of romance Yash Chopra turned 80 today. On this
occasion, Shahrukh Khan, who is very close to Yash
Chopra, has planned to give a special gift to the veteran director.
Talking about Shahrukh Khan's gift, a source told a leading
daily, "Some of SRK's biggest hits have been with Yashji and his
banner. So, we will witness SRK talk to him about his life, films
and his entire journey. It's an homage to Yash Chopra. It was the
Yash Raj Films team who came up with the idea, and Shahrukh was
very excited about it."
The source added, "SRK is the only one from the present
generation of actors who has worked so extensively with Yashji. The
event is being planned on a big level. Yashji generally doesn't
face the camera. Not many tend to remember that before making
romantic films, Chopra also directed some intense ones."
Yash Raj banner has given Shahrukh Khan many important films of
his life. Shahrukh's first film with Yash Raj was Darr
(1993). After Darr, Shahrukh worked with Chopras in
superthit films like Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995),
Dil To Pagal Hai (1997), Mohabbatein (2000),
Veer Zaara (2004) and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi
After Veer Zara, Shahrukh Khan and Yash Chopra are all
set to bring the same magic again on screen with Jab Tak Hai
Jaan. We are desperately waiting!
