Veteran director Yash Chopra is preparing to say goodbye to direction with his upcoming film JAB TAK HAI JAAN (JTHJ).
In order to keep it special to their instructor, all his assistant directors are designing a wonderful token, as a memento for their guru.
Source says, "Adi (Aditya Chopra), who is an assistant director on the film, along with the other ADs, came up with the idea of making the last shot magnificent. To make it stand out, they've decided to use multiple cameras and shoot from various angles, giving it a multi-dimensional feel. Yashji is a living legend, and obviously, his last shot has to be a huge moment."
The unit members will head to Switzerland to shoot the romantic track with the leading stars of the film Shahrukh Khan and Katrina Kaif.
Kartina, who is currently in Chicago shooting for another film is unaware about the plans, but says whatever the plans are, she is lucky and privileged to be part of the film. "This movie will always be special as it is Yashji's last direction. I truly feel lucky that he gave me a chance to be part of his rich history. Like I've said earlier, your CV is not complete unless you've worked with Yashji. He takes romance to a different level!"
"It's a special moment for the unit. We're planning to shoot it in a grand way to be able to freeze that moment for posterity," says the spokesperson of JTHJ.
However, son Adi (Aditya Chopra) will not be present at this special trip due to pre-occupied commitments.
Yash Chopra started his journey in the film industry as an assistant to IS Johar and then joined his brother BR Chopra, who was a director-producer at that time. In 1959, he made his directorial debut with DHOOL KA PHOOL.
