When Yash Chopra spoke about working with Shah Rukh Khan

Notably, in one of the interviews posted on Yash Raj Films YouTube Channel, the veteran filmmaker was in conversation with Shah Rukh Khan. Quoting some of their iconic collaborations, Shah Rukh Khan asked him about the reason for choosing him in the films. The Lamhe director had said that he has been working with King Khan for the past 20 years since their first collaboration on Darr. He told SRK, "It is not that you’re a superstar, so I am working with you."


The filmmaker further shared that it was only Shah Rukh who never asked him about the story or how much would be his fees. Yash Chopra said, “Main logon ko agar btaun kisi picture mein tumne ek paisa nahin liya during production. Jo last week mein before the picture release, I’ve sent you the cheque, tumhara next phone aata tha Yash ji, aapne paise kuch zyada hi bhej diye hain (I would like people to know that you’ve not charged me a single penny during the production stage. Whatever I paid you in the last week, before the film release, you accepted and then would call me, Yash Ji, you’ve sent me a little extra money)."

In addition to this, the filmmaker also revealed how SRK would always have faith in the filmmaker over the films he would be cast for. He said, “You told me, Yash ji, filmein paise ki wajah se ya kisi aur wajah se main kabhi nahin karta hun .Filmein main karta hun dil se..jahan mujhe lagta hai aaj ye film karte hain, ye story pasand hai…jahan Adi likhega, aap direct karenge mujhe kuch puchne ki zaroorat hi nahin hai (You told me, Yash Ji, I don’t do movies for money or any other reason, I do films with all my heart where I feel let’s do it. A film which Adi (Aditya Chopra) would write and you will direct, there is no need to ask anything)."
