Yash Chopra will wield the megaphone after a gap of five years. His last film was Veer Zaara. An official announcement on behalf of Yash Raj Films about this project will be made in January 2011.
Yash Chopra, known as the King of Romance, has a script ready and wrote it keeping Shah Rukh Khan in mind as the hero. This film will go on floors next year as soon as SRK completes his home production Ra.One.
According to sources, there is already intense lobbying by top Bollywood heroines for screen space opposite SRK. The names of Katrina Kaif, Kareena Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra are doing the rounds. However, YRF insiders do not rule out the possibility of a new comer playing the female lead.
