The Romantics is an Aditya Chopra show all the way
The Romantics is a tribute to the legacy of Yash Chopra, YRF and its cultural impact on India over the past 50 years. The Netflix-docu starts streaming on Valentine’s Day February 14.
Netflix’s The Romantics profiling the legend Yash Chopra in four episodes, happened only because Netflix gave complete creative control to Yash Chopra’s son Aditya Chopra, the scion of the Yash Raj family.
A source very close to the project reveals, “If it wasn’t for Adi’s nod, the project wouldn’t have happened. He not only greenlighted the project, he also personally supervised every aspect of the project. Smriti Mundhra is on board as the director of The Romantics. But it is Adi who decided what goes, and what not.”
Apparently the thirty-five interviewees speaking on Yash Chopra in The Romantics were all personally approved by Adi Chopra who also agreed to do his first video interview ever for the docu-pic on his distinguished dad.
Adi Chopra’s one and only print interview was with film critic/editor Khalid Mohamed.
