l'm not a failure

ln the heart of London,

l've kept lndia alive!

Still staring? Lajjo, your daughter's

wedding! Celebrate it with sweets

Chutki! l'm so happy today

Can l say one thing?

. Say fourthings

lt'd be betterto ask Simran once.

. What are you saying?

Ever since she was a baby, she has

known that she is engaged to kuljit

That she knows. But 20 years...

. Don't you worry!

Simran is going to be so happy,...

you'll pray that she never

gets the evil eye!

l'll write to Ajit right away.

God! At last, comes the day

Simran, what are you doing?

l had forgotten, Ma. l haven't

even the right to dream

No my child, of course

you may dream

But don't expect them

to come true

And who know, kuljit might be

the man of your dreams

l don't care.

l've bought yourtickets.

You're coming to Europe with me

. l can't

Babuji won't let me go to college

alone. Will he let me go away...

touring Europe for a month?

l have lots of work here.

. You've known me for years

Can't you make up an excuse?

An excuse, l can find. But l don't

feel like lying to Babuji

You must come. Dolly and Payal

are coming too

Let me talk to Ma tonight


. Yes

With friends?

. Yes

For a month?

. Yes

Chutki, call the doctor. Tell him

that our Simran has gone stark mad

Will you at least take a look?

. Check out your brains first

You talk of travelling by Eurail?

lf he hears, he'll bring the roof down

A lone girl mustn't travel like this.

. Mom, l'm not going to be alone

My friends are going to be with me.

. No good arguing with me

l'm not going to object. But you

will need his permission

Ask him when he's home

God, please keep Babuji

in a nice mood

lt's just beer. lt's overthere.

. l told you. The store is shut

Get out

Got the beer?

. Didn't find any

Aditya Chopra

Aditya Chopra (born 21 May 1971) is an Indian filmmaker. His work as a director includes Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995), Mohabbatein (2000), Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008) and Befikre (2016).He is also the current Chairman of India's multi-national film, media and entertainment conglomerate Yash Raj Films (YRF). Chopra has written and produced a number of critically acclaimed and commercially successful films under the banner such as Veer-Zaara (2004), Fanaa (2006), Band Baaja Baaraat (2010), Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012), the Dhoom series (2004, 2006 & 2013), Sultan (2016) and the Tiger series (2012 & 2017). He has broken away from typecast through production of off-beat films such as Kabul Express (2006), Chak De! India (2007), Rocket Singh (2009), Dum Laga Ke Haisha (2015) and Hichki! (2018), that do not necessarily fit into the realm of "Masala films". Chopra is also the first to move towards a true film studio model through independent projects helmed by producers, writers and directors under his banner. Major production and post-production work of the company is now carried out of YRF Studios (co-founded by his ex-wife Payal Khanna), where Chopra serves as Chief Executive. As of March 2018, he has produced eight films that have accumulated worldwide gross earnings of more than ₹200 crore, which is the most for an Indian film producer. In December 2009, Chopra rejected an extremely aggressive acquisition bid by Walt Disney, valued upwards of ₹2500 crore, to remain and continue purely as an independent entity exclusively funded by domestic enterprises. Apart from emerging as an equitable brand, his company has earned the status of a movie movie mogul, through distribution networks spread across the globe. With a majority of his work being part of the highest grossing films of all time, the company is estimated to be net worth ₹6350 crore (FY17/18) by multiple NSE and BSE analysts, thereby making it the biggest and most successful film production company in the history of Cinema. The Government of India honoured him with the National Film Award for his contribution to the arts, on three separate years (1995, 2005 and 2007) through the Directorate of Film Festivals. In June 2018, he was awarded membership into The Academy by the Producers Guild of America. Widely regarded as one of the most influential and powerful executives in Indian entertainment, Chopra has however rejected the publicity and fame that came with being Yash Chopra's son and the Chief Executive of Yash Raj Films. He has remained extremely media-shy and a passive individual, battling constant reports of an alleged dysthymic disorder throughout his three-decade career, resulting in very few public photos of him being in existence. more…
