“Launching my dad’s film today with a little pooja at YRF…shoot starts tomorrow with @iamsrk and Katrina Kaif..Dad directing after ‘Veer-Zaara’,” actor Uday Chopra wrote on microblogging site Twitter.
This for first time that Shah Rukh will romance Katrina on the big screen in the yet to be titled film, which also features Anushka Sharma.
Yash Chopra returns to direction after seven years – his last directorial venture was cross-border love story “Veer Zaara” in 2004.
The music of the new film will be composed by A.R. Rahman and Gulzar will pen the lyrics.
