Yash Chopra’s big secret
At 79, Yash Chopra is getting more mischievous than ever. Mumbai Mirror has learnt that Chopra has decided to keep the conclusion of the love-triangle in his new directorial venture secret, from not just the world at large, but the protagonists themselves.
Neither Katrina Kaif, nor Anushka Sharma know, who Shah Rukh Khan will walk away with at the end.
A source close to the project told this newspaper, “Which one of the two ladies finally gets the guy is not known to anyone except Yashji and Aditya Chopra. Even Shah Rukh Khan, who’s very close to him, has not been told.”
Apparently, Khan has been persistently asking Chopra to let him into the secret but he hasn’t relented, yet.
According to the grapevine, Chopra didn’t want to revisit the horrifying situation of Daag, where Raakhee and Sharmila were constantly at loggerheads over Rajesh Khanna. Khan shares a warm rapport with Anushka, having done an YRF film Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi with her, but he’s working with Katrina for the first time.
Also, the source has firmly refuted rumours of this film being a remake of Daag.
“It’s a love triangle set in London, where the three actors play contemporary working-class characters. The treatment of love is very mature. Katrina is not the ‘looker’ and Anushka the ‘actor’ in the script. Katrina has one of the most challenging roles of her career,” the source added.
As for who gets the guy, Katrina has the final word, saying, “We’ll cross the bridge when we come to it. At the moment, I’m just enjoying the thought of being a Yash Chopra heroine.”
