Mumbai: Actor Rani Mukerji who is set to make a comeback in the industry with Aiyyaa feels that director Yash Chopra’s retirement post Jab Tak Hai Jaan is a great loss to the industry.
She has worked with the ace director in films like Saathiya, Hum Tum, Bunty Aur Babli and Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic. When Rani was asked about her work experience with the filmmaker, she said, “He gets everybody to participate, gives everyone lot of love and every actor on his sets is pampered. So obviously actors will lose out on working with a great director like him. I am lucky to have got the opportunity to work with him.”
“I think it will be a huge loss but it is a personal decision and everybody should respect it. He has been a legend. He has given us films like Deewar, Trishul, Daag, Waqt, Chandni, Lamhe and Silsila, it is amazing,” she said.
Rani, who is in an alleged relationship with the director’s son Aditya Chopra could not just stop herself from heaping praises. “I have seen him interacting with other actors and they just love him. He does not put any pressure. He makes his actors be spontaneous and act from the heart. Today directors mostly watch monitors and not the actors. But he comes from the time where he used to connect with actors and he follows that. He watches them (actors) behind the camera and not in the monitor,” she added.
