I cast Shahrukh for his passion for films: Yash Chopra

Yash Chopra’s recently celebrated his 80th birthday. The filmmaker, who is back with film, Jab tak hai jaan, at the behest of Shah Rukh Khan, reminisced his Bollywood journey spanning 60 years.

Speaking about the films in the past two decades, the actor asked the veteran about the common factor in his last four films. Though the actor was hinting about his association in those films, Chopra humoured him a bit before saying, “Shah Rukh.” He also said that SRK never asked about the script, his role or his fee.

I cast him for his passion for films, and not his stardom.

he said. Yash Chopra also revealed that his forthcoming film will be his last as a director.

I’ve always followed my heart and this time it says enough of direction.

replied the filmmaker, adding that he would now guide younger talent in various departments like acting, writing and directing.
