Shah Rukh, Katrina come together for YashrajJune 27th, 2011 - 4:01 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, June 27 (IANS) It’ll be for the first time that Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan will romance Katrina Kaif on the big screen. And the credit for it goes to filmmaker Yash Chopra who is directing the two in his untitled film.
Chopra last directed “Veer Zaara” way back in 2004 and now he is back with this new movie that also features Anushka Sharma of “Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi”. The film’s music will be given by A.R. Rahman while Gulzar will pen the lyrics.
“It’s been seven years since I directed ‘Veer-Zaara’ and as I begin work on my new film, I hear my inner voice asking me a lot of questions. Are you sure you want to direct again, you are nearly 80 and the audience is getting younger day by day,” said Chopra.
“Can I really speak from my heart and still expect today’s youth to listen to me? Will I be able to live up to the blind faith that Shah Rukh Khan has in me and give him yet another memorable romantic film?”
“Will I be able to present the beautiful Katrina Kaif and the very talented Anushka Sharma in a way they have never been seen before? Will I be able to inspire Rahman and Gulzar bhai enough to create their best work yet?” he added.
The legendary director, who has made films like “Deewar”, “Silsila”, “Darr”, “Dil To Pagal Hai”, says he doesn’t know answers to these questions, but he has full faith in this movie.
“The honest answer is… I don’t know! All I know is that I’m making a film that I believe in, a film that is about love and nothing else. A film which has an old soul but a young heart. A film which is classic in its look but contemporary in its language,” he said.
“A film which I’m making on one simple faith… the love that my audiences have given to me over the years. They have tolerated my indulgences for the past 50 years, I’m sure they will indulge me one more time,” he added.
The film is scheduled for a Diwali 2012 release.
