Yash Chopra to wield megaphone after seven years

MUMBAI: After 2004, Yash Chopra will wield the megaphone in his next, yet untitled film starring Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif.

Said Chopra, "It‘s been seven years since I directed Veer-Zaara and as I begin work on my new film, I hear my inner voice asking me a lot of questions. ‘Are you sure you want to direct again, you are nearly 80 and the audience is getting younger day-by-day‘. Can I really speak from my heart and still expect today‘s youth to listen to me? Will I be able to live up to the blind faith that Shah Rukh Khan has in me and give him yet another memorable romantic film?" he questioned.

Regarding his leading ladies, Chopra said, "Will I be able to present the beautiful Katrina Kaif and the very talented Anushka Sharma in a way they have never been seen before? Will I be able to inspire Rahman and Gulzar bhai enough to create their best work yet?"

The legendary director, who has made films like Deewar, Silsila, Darr and Dil To Pagal Hai, says he doesn‘t know answers to these questions, but he has full faith in his film. "All I know is that I‘m making a film that I believe in, a film that is about love and nothing else. A film which has an old soul but a young heart. A film which is classic in its look but contemporary in its language."

Chopra last directed Veer Zaara way back in 2004. Now he is back with this new film that also features Anushka Sharma.
