Yash Chopra's next takes inspiration from son Aditya's DDLJ

Aditya Chopra created history, giving Hindi cinema its longest running movie, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995, DDLJ). Now, almost two decades later, his father, Yash Chopra takes inspiration from son Adi for his next untitled film starring actors Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif.

A source tells us that the scene from DDLJ, when SRK and Kajol part ways at the Eurail station in London when their Europe vacation comes to an end, has been re-enacted, this time with SRK and Anushka Sharma. The source reveals, “The scene where SRK and Kajol part ways has been incorporated in Yashji’s film. It has been shot at an airport a little outside London.”

The untitled next, which is touted to be a romantic film, true to Yash Chopra’s favoured genre, will see SRK woo both leading ladies. As for the borrowed scene, the source says, “DDLJ defines romance for most people. Since it is a film under the Yash Raj Films banner, there was no issue of buying rights.” So will there be a song playing in the background as well, just like in DDLJ? The source says, “We’re not sure of that yet.”

When asked to confirm the news, Rafiq Gangjee, vice president, marketing and communications, YRF, neither accepts nor denies it. “As a policy, we do not comment on our shoot. For that, you have to watch the movie on November 13,” Rafiq says.



TITLE TATTLE

Teaser without title
“Never before has a film’s trailer been released without its title. This one insinuates that it just may be called ‘Yash Chopra’s romance’. However, the teaser does confirm that the film will release on Diwali (November 13),” an insider told Hindustan Times.

SRK on the film's title
“For now, it’s important to know that it’s my film and it’s coming out on Diwali. Naam mein kya rakha hai? (What’s in a name?),” he said, adding that none of this is a marketing gimmick. “We want a title that can encompass something that can’t be destroyed, such as love and beliefs. Yashji has something in mind though.”
