Yash Chopra, who celebrated his 80th birthday on Thursday, said in a chat with Shahrukh Khan that Jab Tak Hai Jaan will be his last film as a director.
The veteran filmmaker said, “Bahut ho gaya abhi. My heart says bahut ho gaya abhi. I will not direct any other film after ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’. I have got lot of love in all these years. I think now the time has come to pay back. I want to help directors, actors, technicians who I could not help all these years.”
“This industry has given me so much. I am very much happy and satisfied with the film. This film has turned out better than my expectation. I don’t want to do anything else. My wife has been complaining a lot. I want to make her happy and enjoy my life,” added Yash Chopra.
SRK, who has been working with Yash Chopra since the past 20 years, is also a part of Jab Tak Hai Jaan, along with Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. Shahrukh said that he was saddened with Yash Chopra’s decision.
He said: “I feel sad but great people decide when they want to finish… For years I have worked with Yashji. This is a moment of happy sadness. We are happy that we are part of that film which made you happy.”
