Filmmaker Yash Chopra and actor Shah Rukh Khan came together for the first time for the movie ‘Darr’ (1993), which went on to become a hit. Later on the duo collaborated on movies ‘Dil Toh Pagal Hai’ and ‘Veer-Zaara’, both of which went on to become super hits at the box-office.
Now the team of Yash Chopra and Shah Rukh Khan is back with eagerly awaited movie ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’.
“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 Yash Chopra who turned 80 last week.
The director said that Shah Rukh Khan has always shown great faith in him.
“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,” he said.
Yash Chopra’s last movie ‘Veer-Zaara’ was eight years ago.
“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’,” he said.
The recently released trailer of the movie contained Shah Rukh Khan reciting poetry penned by none other than Gulzar and blended with melodious music by AR Rahman.
“I am happy that I am working with both of them. It is magical to have them,” concluded the legendary director.
Along with Shah Rukh Khan ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ stars Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma in lead roles.
‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ will release on November 13.
