Yash Chopra pays his Chandni a visit


By Hindustan Times

It is common knowledge that Sridevi has always been one of producer-director Yash Chopra’s favourite leading ladies. And recently, he paid her a visit when she was shooting for her upcoming film, English Vinglish, at Yash Raj Studios in the city suburbs.

The veteran filmmaker personally dropped by on the sets of the Gauri Shinde film.A source close to the production unit informs us, “Yashji and Sridevi have known each other since Chandni (1989), which he directed her in. They are very fond of each other. When Yashji found out that one of his favourite actress would be shooting at his studio, he was delighted.” The source adds, “They chatted for a while and reminisced about the good old days. Yashji even congratulated her on her comeback film. Sridevi, needless to say, was touched by the gesture and was very happy to see him there.”

English Vinglish is set to release on October 5. Though the film is based in America, except for the outdoor scenes, everything else including a set for the American home has been created and shot at Yash Raj Studios in Andheri.
