Acclaimed director Yash Chopra was to continue his love affair with the Swiss Alps by shooting a song at the location for his last directorial venture, Jab Tak Hai Jaan. His illness led to the shoot being postponed. Now, insiders say that the song shall be scrapped altogether after his untimely demise due to a multi-organ failure.
Mumbai Mirror reports that the film will be released without even a single frame being altered. Son Aditya Chopra had been helping his father in the film's shooting and had overseen the romantic scenes in the movie. He was to accompany his father abroad for the Swiss song as well. However, the team, Aditya included, now feel that it would be inappropriate to proceed with the Director's final cut not being possible anymore.
Apart from the fact that such alterations will amount to tampering with the late director's vision, paucity of time is an issue. Those on the inside say that the film's marketing profile will now change considering it is the final effort of a Bollywood legend.
