MUMBAI: Reports say that people “close to the Chopras” have requested the other Diwali release Son Of Sardaar to move. But a very well-informed source says, “Who at Yashraj or anyone close to Yashraj has asked Son Of Sardar to move? Contrary to reports, no one has ‘requested’ the people behind Son Of Sardar to find themselves another slot. It’s not required. It’s their own imagination.”
At the Yashraj camp the mood is upbeat. The Doyen is dead. But his dream lives on. Jab Tak Hai Jaan is expected to smash all previous box-office records of Yashraj’s films.
The real surprise of the film is Katrina Kaif.
Says a source from Yash Raj, “Yashji visualized Katrina as the archetypal Yash Raj heroine. And she didn’t let him down. She worked on her diction, body language and her comfort level in chiffon sarees to ensure she lives up the standards set by Yashji’s dream women Raakhee in Daag and Kabhi Kabhie ,and Sridevi in Chandni and Lamhe.”
