We have been informed that Aditya Chopra has a keen interest in Anushka’s Career, so much so that Yashraj Films (or rather Aditya Chopra) has to approve her new projects before she gets on with it, it looks rather strange. We all know that Yashraj Films launched her in ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’, and like every other Yashraj protege, she had signed a contract to do 3 films with them. That’s understandable, but getting script approval from Adi, is little far fetched, but she denied this, saying that she is too professional to hand over the script of another production house to Adi. But she agrees with the fact that she gets advice from Adi, from time to time and he has shown a keen interest in her career movements.
She said she is quite delighted with Adi’s interference. Now she has signed Nikhil Advani’s Patiala House opposite Akshay Kumar, of course with Adi’s approval.
Grapevine now has it that after her second assignment for Yash Raj, directed by Parmeet Sethi, the Rab Ne… girl will be contractually left with one more film for the banner that introduced her to Bollywood. However, she is free to sign any outside film, like in the case of Patiala House, but the project must be approved by Yash Raj.
The interesting part is that, no other production house in the history of Bollywood has taken such a keen interest in any of their protégé’s career. We call her lucky because we all know that Aditya Chopra is such a talented director and producer.
