Yash Chopra resumes romance with Kashmir for SRK starrer
Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who plays an armyman in the Yashraj Films' next, is on his maiden shooting assignment in the Valley for the untitled project which marks producer-director Yash Chopra's return to Kashmir after a gap of three decades.
Chopra, who last captured the Valley on-screen in Amitabh-Rakhee starrer 'Kabhie Kabhie' in 1976, had replaced Kashmir with Swiss Alps for his later films as the region struggled with militancy.
Shah Rukh arrived at the Srinagar International Airport this morning and then flew to south Kashmir tourist resort of Pahalgam for the shoot after completing his schedule in Ladakh.
SRK will shoot "for eight to 10 days" in the Valley, a source close to Chopra said. Chopra, his wife Pamela and their son Aditya, have already arrived in Kashmir and have been camping at Pahalgam for the last two days along with the 100-odd shooting crew, the source said.
Chopra will also shoot in north Kashmir Gulmarg tourist resort and along the banks of Dal Lake in the city. SRK plays an Army bomb disposal expert Samar in the film, also starring Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma.
The untitled film marks Chopra's return to the direction after a gap of eight years and brings together the award winning pair of A R Rahman and Gulzar. The film is scheduled for a Diwali release on November 13. PTI
