Both of them are considered the kings of romance — on screen and behind the camera — so when Shah Rukh Khan and Yash Chopra come together for a film, everyone’s expectations are high. Since the title of Yash’s film has become nothing less than a mystery, it was expected to be announced with the first teaser of the film. But that’s not what happened.
“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),” says an insider.
The teaser also takes us through various iconic films from the Yash Chopra stable such as Deewar (1975), Kabhi Kabhie (1976), Silsila (1981) and Dil Toh Pagal Hai (1997).
Chopra’s film’s title has been making the news for a while now. A few days ago, SRK was heard talking about it at an event. “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.”
The yet-untitled film will see Chopra returning to filmmaking after almost an eight-year hiatus, his last film being Veer Zaara (2004). Rumours have it that Yash Raj Films is likely to come out with the title once the film’s final schedule ends in Kashmir and Ladakh.
