Jugal Hansraj has been given the responsibility of resurrecting Uday Chopra’s flagging career. A source close to Yash Raj Films said, “Aditya Chopra is extremely fond of Jugal. He has given him roles in Hum Tum, Aaja Nachle and several other Yash Raj films and also encouraged Jugal to turn director (Roadside Romeo). Now when the family is concerned about Uday’s career, Aditya has given Jugal the responsibility to do the needful.”
The film will be launched early next year and will be a very unusual love story. According to a close friend of the Chopras, “Yash Raj is done with conventional films. Now Aditya Chopra is looking at doing path-breaking work with directors who would like to grow with the Yash Raj empire and not just use the banner as a stepping stone.”
This film requires an ultra-glamorous leading lady. Apparently Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone have been approached.
Jugal Hansraj said, “It’s too early to talk about the film. It’s still in the planning stage. I’ll talk about it once everything is in place.”
