We told youin May that Yash Chopra was toyingwith the idea of revisiting one of his favourite destinations, the Kashmirvalley, as a backdrop for his directorial next starring Shah RukhKhan and Katrina Kaif.
The last time the snow-dusted valley featured in Chopra's films was in the 1976blockbuster “Kabhie Kabhie”, after which the filmmaker, known for his choice ofthe most beautiful locales, had shifted his attention to the Swiss Alps for thelongest time. So much so, the production house even conducted a recce ofKashmir, raising anticipation levels there.
However, TOI now has it that the climax of Yash Chopra's yet-untitled film willbe shot in Ladakh and not Kashmir, only because Shah Rukh suggested the venue.
A source close to the film had said, "Yashji loves the snow in Kashmir andhas shot two of his most romantic films, “Daag” and “Kabhi Kabhie”, there. They needa snow-capped landscape for the climax. Hence, initially, he contemplatedshooting in Kashmir."
However, Shah Rukh came up with the idea of Ladakh, where he had shot for ManiRathnam's “Dil Se”, andstill has fond memories of the place, the source revealed.
That's when and how the plan changed. So this winter, the film's unit will headfor a ten-day climax shoot to Ladakh instead of Kashmir.
Yash Raj Films' official spokesperson confirmed the news saying, "The nextschedule is in Ladakh."
