Aditya Chopra, happy birthday!

The new head honcho of Yash Raj Films turns 42!

Born on May 21, 1971, Aditya Chopra always nurtured the dream of becoming a filmmaker, a successful one like his late father Yash Chopra. Aditya proved that he had what it takes with his first film, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge – it broke box office records and continues to be popular today. He has always been media shy, avoiding the cameras and the limelight ever since he entered Bollywood.

Irrespective of who the director has been, almost every film produced by Yash Raj Films has Adi’s mind behind it, working around the clock, ensuring that it does well at the box office. Not only is he a talented filmmaker, but his marketing skills are said to be on par with the likes of the Perfectionist actor Aamir Khan, even though Chopra (unlike Khan) works on several projects together at one time. Unfortunately, Adi has also been controversy’s favourite child because of his constant refusal to talk to the media, never mind talking about his reported girlfriend – perhaps now wife – Rani Mukerji.

Aditya is currently busy with chalking out plans to wrap up one of the most anticipated and successful films of this year, the Aamir Khan-Abhishek Bachchan-Katrina Kaif starrer Dhoom:3, besides several promising projects including Gunday, Sonam Kapoor-Ayushmann Khurrana’s next untitled and Kill Dill featuring Ranveer Singh, Ali Zafar and Parineeti Chopra, among others.

We are sure wherever Yashji is right now, he would be smiling at seeing his beloved elder son Aditya taking his legacy and passion for cinema ahead. We at BollywoodLife wish Aditya Chopra a very happy birthday!
