Yash Chopra to bring snow back in romancePhoenix | January 31, 2012, 7:31 PM | 23 comments | 1,067 views
He made Swiss Alps the most wanted honeymoon destination for newly wedded couples in India. The sub-zero temperature notwithstanding, for Yash Chopra films, snow clad mountains became the perfect backdrop for romance. Be it Amitabh Bachchan and Rakhee Gulzar snuggling in a shawl in Kabhie Kabhi or Amitabh and Rekha holding hands and singing Dekha Ek Khwab in Silsila, Yash Chopra, snow and romance have been inseparable. And iconic. And now, the filmmaker who is returning to direction with the yet untitled Shah Rukh Khan – Katrina Kaif starrer after 8 years, is keen on bringing back the same white romance in his upcoming venture. Mumbai Mirror has learnt that Yash Chopra is busy location hunting. And this time, he wants his favourite snow clad mountains back.
The filmmaker confirmed that he wants a part of the film to be shot in a snow clad region. “It is being planned,” said Chopra.
Mirror learnt that the production house is busy hunting the perfect locale for the film.
Apart from snow clad mountains, the SRK-Katrina starrer will also be shot in several other foreign locales. In fact, for the next schedule, the entire cast and crew of the film will be traveling to London next month.
Talking about his favourite hero SRK and the progress of the film, Chopra added, “Shah Rukh is such a lovely boy. It is always fun shooting with him. We have finished shooting a song here (in Mumbai). Now, we will be going to London next month. After we return, we will be shooting in India for a while. The team is still busy location hunting. Everything will be finalised by the time we come back.”
Interestingly, SRK too has romanced various heroines on snow clad mountains for the filmmaker. In YRF’s Darr, he sang Tu Mere Saamne for Juhi Chawla on a snow clad peak. In Diwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, SRK was subjected to Kajol’s drunken passion in the song Zaraa Sa Jhoom Loon Main. And that too was on a snow clad vale.
