Shahrukh Khan never asks about the money and story from Yash Chopra!

By Puri

Filmmaker Yash Chopra, who teamed up with Shahrukh Khan for over half-a-dozen films in the past two decades, said the actor never sought to know the story or the fees he would be paid, when offered a role by the veteran filmmaker.

Yash Raj banner and Shahrukh came together in Darr (1993) for the first time. After Darr, Shah Rukh Khan worked with Chopras in the superhit Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995), Dil To Pagal Hai (1997), Mohabbatein (2000), Veer Zaara (2004) and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008).

"I have always had great experience working with him. He is one actor who has never asked me what the story is about, how much money he will charge...whatever amount I send him through cheque he takes that and rather asks me why I gave such a huge amount," said Chopra, who turned 80 on Thursday.

"He does not meet me before we start shooting, he says why to meet...i don't want to know the story, don't want to talk about money so why to meet. It is all because he has faith in me."

After Veer Zara, Shahrukh and Yash Chopra have joined hands in upcoming Jab Tak Hai Jaan. Mr Chopra is making his directorial comeback after a gap of eight years.

"After Veer Zaara, I wanted to make something different and nice....soul-touching film. That is when I told Aditya, my son, that I want to direct a film. This film is a gift to me by Aditya. He told me 'make the film dad and I am there to provide all kind of help'."

While Gulzaar has penned the lyrics, AR Rahman has composed the music. "I am happy that I am working with both of them. It is magical to have them," Mr Chopra said.
