Mumbai, Jan 9: It may not be a Silsila, but Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan, who has a reputation for emotional romantic films, is now all set to romance for the first time Katrina Kaif, the reigning box office queen in a film to be directed by the doyen of Indian cinema Yash Chopra.
The film is going on the floors this week and the production house as well others are excited about the event, mainly because Katrina Kaif, Salman Khan's ex, is going to romance SRK, the friend-turned-foe of Salman.
Uday Chopra, the younger son of Yash Chopra confirmed on twitter, ‘launching my dad's film today with a little pooja at YRF... shoot starts tomorrow with @ iamsrk and Katrina Kaif.. Dad directing after Veer- Zaara (sic).'
The excitement in the production house is palpable as Yashraj Films have not seen directing the veteran filmmaker for last seven years after he was done with ‘VeerZara'.
Music for the film is being composed by A R Rahman and lyrics will be penned by Gulzar.
Anushka Sharma, who had made her debut with SRK in an earlier Yashraj f lick, will be playing an important role in the movie.
Sources from the set of the Yashraj flick reveal that Shah Rukh Khan, being not in mood to get into any trouble, asked Katrina directly this question about Salman Khan.
When Katrina explained to him that Sallu was only a good friend and did not have any say in her professional life that SRK was convinced about the whole issue and could ready himself to shoot with the firang babe.
With superhero films like Ra.One and Don 2 failing to make a big impact on the box office, it's back to square one for SRK to do romance films now.
