SRK’s ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ to go on floors in May
The movie marks the return of Aditya Chopra as a director after eight years.
Shah Rukh Khan has been cast reportedly opposite Sonam Kapoor, daughter of veteran actor Anil Kapoor, in the film which trade circles describe as a love story between a 40-year-old man and a 16-year-old girl.
However, sources in Yash Raj films are tight lipped on the cast opposite Khan as well as the film’s story which will be set in Punjab.
Slated for release on December 12, Sanjeev Kohli, Director and CEO of YashRaj films, said that for the past eight years, Aditya has put his energies on building Yash Raj Films into India’s first production house built on the studio model and shaping it into a creative nerve centre that has nurtured some of India’s best screenwriters, directors and stars.
He said ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ will make audiences think of the magic touch that has made ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’ the longest running motion picture in the history of Indian cinema.
Unlike many of his stories and screenplays including `Veer-Zara’, this film will capture the hearts across the globe all over again, he claimed.
