Recently we reported that Bollywood Diva’s like Madhuri Dixit, Sridevi, Juhi Chawla, Rani Mukerji, Katrina Kaif, Anushka Sharma would be walking the ramp to pay tribute to the late filmmaker Yash Chopra on his birthday (September 27). Joining the ladies bandwagon for the event would be the Bollywood Baadshah Shahrukh Khan.

Not only will Shahrukh be the only male actor to have this opportunity but he would also be a showstopper. ”Shah Rukh has agreed to do the honours. He will be the showstopper at the event. It was Pamelaji’s (Chopra; Yash Chopra’s wife) idea and he was more than happy to oblige,” says an insider.
On his 80th birthday last year, SRK had interviewed Chopra in front of a live audience comprising of the industry members and journalists at a grand event in the city. For the uninitiated, SRK starred in the last four films Chopra directed – Darr (1993), Dil To Pagal Hai (1997), Veer-Zara (2004) and Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012). Chopra breathed his last on October 21, 2012.
While Pamela Chopra couldn’t be reached for a comment, Rafiq Gangjee, the official spokesperson of the filmmaker’s production house, confirms the news, saying, ”Pamelaji requested Shah Rukh to be part of this tribute to Yashji and he happily agreed to walk with all the divas as part of the grand finale.”
With Shahrukh Khan walking the ramp with the beautiful ladies, the event undoubtedly would be grand!
