Yash Chopra's Next Project Confirmed with Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif & Anushka Sharma

As already announced, Yash Chopra's next directorial venture stars the king of romance, Shahrukh Khan. As Yashji put it earlier, "Everyone knows that when I make a movie, Shahrukh will be involved with it. He is like family to YRF and I have always regarded him as one of my own."

However, after days of media conjecturing, we are happy to confirm that the two ladies, who will also be a part of this project, are Katrina Kaif, who will be playing a role opposite Shahrukh for the very first time, and Anushka Sharma, who was launched in "Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi", alongside Shahrukh.

Orchestrated by Yash Chopra, this untitled movie will mark the coming together yet again of the award winning duo of the music maestro A. R. Rahman and the poet & lyricist, Gulzar.

When we spoke with him, he shared some of his thoughts with us.

"It's been 7 years since I directed Veer-Zaara and as I begin work on my new film I hear my inner voice asking me a lot of questions. Are you sure you want to direct again, you are nearly 80 years old and the audience is getting younger day by day. Can I really speak from my heart and still expect today's youth to listen to me? Will I be able to live up to the blind faith that Shahrukh Khan has in me and give him yet another memorable romantic film? Will I be able to present the beautiful Katrina Kaif and the very talented Anushka Sharma in a way they have never been seen before? Will I be able to inspire Rahman and Gulzar Bhai enough to create their best work yet?

The honest answer is... I DON'T KNOW! All I know is that I'm making a film that I believe in, a film that is about love and nothing else. A film which has an old soul but a young heart. A film which is classic in its look but contemporary in its language. A film which I'm making on one simple faith... the love that my audiences have given to me over the years. They have tolerated my indulgences for the past 50 years, I'm sure they will indulge me one more time."

The film is scheduled for a Diwali 2012 release, the festive time when Yash Chopra movies over the years have lit up homes worldwide.

Yashji, it's nice to have you back in the Director's Chair!

Hai yc

he should have paired Vidya SRK and Anuska.. and if Vidya reduces her wait she can be perfect powerful Yash Copra heroin mann that would 've been awesome combo.. or Rani SRK and Vidya.. this is a horrible choice.. and of all the people? Yashji ? you? I am soo disappointed.. shit..

OMG disaster.. Katrina? Yashji? do you even know that this woman is expressionless.. no emotions at all.. I am sooooo sad.. mann horrible.. do you want o retire with a flop? Please change Kat.. Anuskha is ok. but she has no chemistry with SRK.. shit complete mess in selection.. They should have gone for SRK Rani and Anuskha.. or HR, Anuskha, Kareena.. WTF with this choice.. Kat of all the people.. SHIt Shit..

Katrina....she can't act D: kick her out, get rid of her!
keep Anushka though, she's a good actress and has a lovely look.

this movie shud be SUPER SUPER romance/romantic

Pleaseeeee yash ji, remove katrina and take kajol. Then the film will make a history in world. "srk-kajol", yash chopra, rahman, gulzar it sounds good.

Cant wait for this film, wow FINALLY KATRINA WITH SRK AND YASH CHOPRA. wow. even though in the beggining i did not like katrina and her acting, it was her down to earth and humbleness that made me like her. she is so so hard working and you can see it from her first film to know, her hindi has improved tremendously. like akshay said that he sees how hard working kat is how much she memorizes her lines.

there must be something in Kat that Yash Chopra saw or else why would he sign her. tell me which actress from bollywood would go to lets say french movie industry learn french, learn to dance in french and act in french movies, well NO ONE, AND YET KATRINA DID THAT. gIVE a person credit where there deserve it.

sucks with tis option

not katrinaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa pleaaaaaaaase

OL ..I'm so glad I'm not the only one who picked up on 'Beautiful' Katrina and 'Talented' Anushka! He may be old but he's smart enough to know which of the two can act. To be honest I am disappointed in YC he could have worked with Kajol, Ash, Rani etc but he selected a non actress like Katrina. Had her films flopped she would have disappeared and no one would have even remembered she came in films. Her success is down to being Salman Khan's (ex) girlfriend and LUCK! We've gone from the likes of Heme, Sridevi, Madhuri, Kajol , Aish down to .. Katrina - She’s average looking, cant act, cant speak hindi, cant dance and yet she will be staring in a Yash Chopra film directed by the man himself…unbelievable!!

Sounds good :)

I m super duper excited for this movie....SRK-Katrina...together WOW.....*Faint*

oh god why so much hate for katrina..is it beacause she is beautiful??? people are so jealous of her..she is one beautiful girl who always behave and always talk good about evryone..in india people still disriminate..Its very sad..well I m not from India..but I watch hindi film..people in here are craxy about kareena katrina sonam and many more..but I dont why indian people hate these beautiful actresses..well I am so glad srk and katrina are working together..Its like a dream came true..Its just made my day...:)))

Katrina!! no way!!!!!!! mascarade.

katrina wasnt scared of manoj bajpai or ranbir or aja devgan in raajneeti, she has no need to
be scared of anushka

Katrina!! no no and no, she can't act!! don't want to watch this movie!

WHY KATRINA???? I HOPE ANUSHKA HAS THE BETTER ROLE

SRK is 2 years younger than Johnny Depp, John Stamos, Tom Cruise, and Brad Pitt. 3 years younger than Jim Carrey
4 years younger than George Clooney, 1 year younger than Rob Lowe

These men can act with younger actresses, so WHY NOT SRK???

You all make no sense.

yash chopra sir is a genius need i say more

YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY finally Bollywood King & Queen SRK-KAT doing a movie together.
I m over the moon rite now. This is the best news ever.

NOT SHAHRUKH AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They should give the younger guys(Zayed,Ranbir,Imran,Neil, etc) movies like this. For how long is Shahrukh going to play 27 or 32 year old in a movie when there are plenty of young good looking and talented guys in bollywood who have not been given a chance yet. How long is this budda going to act in all the good movies. GIVE US SOME JUSTICE PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I AGREE WITH THE OTHER COMMENTS , KATRINA CAN'T ACT !!!!!!!!!!!

I do not understant the cast! WHY KATRINAA... pfffff stupid choice ,I don't even want to watch the movie !

OH NOOOOO! why katrina ! anushka rocked in RNBDJ ,I can understand why they want her in YRF !
but katrina ...

KAJOOOOOL AND SHAHRUKH TOGETHER WOULD HAVE BEEN AMAAAAZING !!!!!!!!just imagine =D

"beautiful katrina and very talented anushka...LOOOLL...THAT SHWSS WHERE U STAND KATRINA!

Yash Chopra has real passion for his art. At his age instead of retiring he is weaving a brand new lovestory. wow. I like to watch new pairings in films, too much of the same ole gets tiring and is a drag not entertaining. Can't wait to see Katrina pair up with SRK onscreen its a fresh pairing. Even though Anushka has teamed up with Srk in one movie their pairing is still fresh it does not suffer from over exposure.

Is he playing their father? LMAO!

for some reason, not too excited about this like kat's mere brother ki dulhan...

anushka sharma will act the pants off katrina kaif.... be scared katrina, be very scared ...

why not vidya balan instead of kat

Lol.. I love Yash Chopra's choice of words: "the beautiful Katrina and the talented Anushka". Anushka is gonna outshine Katrina like no other in this movie! I (personally) find her prettier than Katrina and oh yes.. she can actually act!

katrina must be shitting her pants .... coz anushka can ACT

Shame on SRK!!! He should take a look to his passport and confirm his age. Katrina and Anushka??? are you serious, why not Kajol and Rani? they match his age and CAN act, why would he want to act with this talentless Katrina?? I'm so dissapointed with SRK((((((((((

Biggest mistake to cast Katrina, the girl is pretty but dumb, cannot act to save herself, Anushka has already been paired opposite SRK so why again! Wish Yash Chopra had picked Lara Dutta, Raveena Tandon or Juhi Chawla! This film is going to suck big time!

ahhhh so here comes a tough competition for katrina.... i mean anushka.. though i like like katrina but anushka is a better actress *sigh*

Two actresses who can't act top that with SRK who's practically over the hill!

MoV would be best without katrina!

wow this news is great..katrina and srk never done a film together..I am so happy finally they are doing a film..happy for anushka tooo..she is lovely..

katrina luk lyk rakhi sawant lol

plzzzzzz not katrina,she cant act!

yash chopra himself said beautiful katrina and talented anushka.....lol,even he knows katrina is just beautiful,as for anushka,she is not a gr8 actress but better than kat......

OMG! this is what i call dream came true....best news ever. This movie gona be huge *Inshallah*
I m so looking forward to this movie....:))
Srk-Kat.....my Dream Pair ~♥ - ♥~

From Sridevi, Rekha and Juhi to Katrina and Anushka ..oh dear..Yash used to go for quality actresses... I do like Anushka ..but I don't feel she has proved herself to be in a Yash Chopra movie. I hope the story is worth it. I really didn't like the SRK - Anushka pairing...plus not amassive fan of Katrina

Thats fantastic...Katrina and Shahrukh despite being No. 1 each have never acted with each other..great casting..am excited to see how they look together on screen!

are you serious?
srk and anushka pairing is fine....why add the other bimbo....kat is no good...she cant act talk for sh$it.
anyways if this is true...then all i know is that Anushka is ganna profit the most from this movie...shes ganna overshadow katrina. maybe after this movie....india/indian flim industries will get it through their thick heads that this dumb bimbo brit cant talentless n cant do shI$t. kat is only good for shedding clothes n givin young boys bo**ers!!

katrina yessssss i cant wait for the film

haters are jealous again

Choosing Katrina is a real dissapoinment. She is such a horrible actress!

yay for anushka
but damn katrina will ruin it

SRK is 2 years younger than Johnny Depp, John Stamos, Tom Cruise, and Brad Pitt. 3 years younger than Jim Carrey
4 years younger than George Clooney, 1 year younger than Rob Lowe

These men can act with younger actresses, so WHY NOT SRK???

You all make no sense.

I cant wait for this movie, AR Rahman and Gulzer the songs are going to be fantastic, and SRK and Kat just what i wanted.

Wow, I cant wait for this move, i ALWAYS WANTED SRK AND KAT together in a film.

lol im just laughing cause i got my wish whereas people wanted to see aish, rani, kareena, priyanka opposite srk. i told u guys yash chopra will definitely pick someone younger opposite srk. aish is 38 do u really guys expect yash to cast her in his film? come on be serious...

Yayyy Yashji is back!!

BUt why Katrina?? she can not act or even speak in Hindi. should have chosen a girl who can actually act.
Anushka is a great choice!!

by the way, arent both women too young for SRK? not that it matters in bollywood!!

I was hoping for Vidya-Rani-SRK. That would have been awesome

R u serious Yash Chopra?!! You're old age is certainly affecting your mental abilities considering Kat is going to be in a film w/SRK & Anushka!! Vidya or Rani would've been awesome

A hero like SRK is never too old for any girl. Plus he is a male, he can romance younger girls and can still carry it off, provided they don't try too hard to make him look young - which even if they tried tastefully, srk can still carry it off, he is not THAT old. He has the charm to floor any woman. SRK and gorgeous Kat will be a fresh pairing. Anushka is a natural and I look forward to this story. SRK can create chemistry with just one look of his.

srk is old ? HAHAH i SMELL jealousy

because we can't have actresses that are actually SRK's age to act opposite him.

And fans don't have a problem with this. They keep on supporting it.

i agree SRK is way tooo old....hes 45 for crying out loud...

no one will give attention to kat

I like Anusha, LOVE Shahrukh, but why did they pick Katrina? She is TERRIBLE.

Katrina are you serious? their are so much more deserving ppl ugh bollywood has went to shit anyway

oh no! whyyy katrina. she's terrible

WOOHOOO! THIS IS THE GREATEST PIECE OF NEWS! THE FILM IS A SURE SHOT BLOCKBUSTER!!

aaaargh i was hoping he wouldn't cast katrina :/

lol...no way. srk is looking like their grandad....omg...srk is over...bring in some young hottie to play the male lead

NOOOO way Katrina? Please give me a break.. Yashji.. why? please choose an actress not a display model..

Sadly I am not excited.. Anushka is a good actress but no chemistry with SRK... and Kat less said the better.. feel sorry for Yashji.. Terrible choice of actresses.. He should 've gone for Rani or Vidya.. who are powerful actors and they will look good with SRK.. Rani has a rocking chemistry with SRK

This film will be really good.

Wohoooooo!! Katinra+srk = epicccc movieeeeeeeee !! cant waittt

yeahhhhhhhh :)

katrina is the best.... so like it or not!!

srk with yash chopra will always be a nice film to watch. katrina and anushka cannot act at all (if i had to compare, anushka is wayy better than anushka) so i can't say i'm thrilled about their casting---may look good but again it's about acting which is where they will not shine. i will be bored if it's another bubbly, fun role for anushka - give her something new to show if she's versatile and see if she's the good actress she is known as and no comments on katrina's "acting" if you can call it that. srk will definitely have the main role in this film so yash ji will have something special planned for him which i will certainly be excited to watch. the music will definitely also be something to watch out for - a r rahman and gulzar--- can't get a better combination this!

no way??? with Katrina? but can she play? no way!!

If yash chopra is dumb enough to have such a ridiculous pairing as katrina-SRK, then he it is time he retired from directing films.

Shah rukh is too old to be paired opposite Katrina or Anushka. This is a real shame, considering there are so many beautiful and talented older actresses who could be more appropriate leads.

why kat coz kat make a bumper opening

Great news indeed! Not sure about Kat, she can't act and in front of the best actor Shahrukh Khan, her acting will look worse:/ BUt anyways Shahrukh and Kat will make a fresh pair , and I've always loved Shahrukh and Anushka, both great actors!:D

noooooooooooooooooo......y katrina???

Can't watch it soon enough. That should be a very good movie, based on his past films. Veer-Zaara was a nice movie & so was Rab Na/with Anushka Sharma. And w/ A Rahman's geat music. I love those movies & I don't even understand Hindi. Thank God for subtitles, & hopefully this will have better English translation than d others!

So happy! I love SRk, I love Anushka and I like Katrina so waiting for the movie!!!
