Yash Raj Films is India’s premier production house, an Independent film studio with many hits to its credit that include ‘DDLJ’, and ‘Dhoom’ franchise’. Founded by great filmmaker Yash Chopra in 1970, the production house has now completed 50 years.
On this occasion, filmmaker Aditya Chopra wrote a heartfelt note.
“My father didn’t know then, that the small company that he started in a tiny room, would one day become the biggest film company of the Indian Film Industry,” Aditya Chopra wrote. He continued, “I had foreseen the advent of international corporate studios coming to India and taking over our business. I wanted us to achieve a certain scale so that we could retain our independence before they came in. My father contradicted his conservative mind-set and bravely indulged all my bold initiatives. And in 10 quick years, we went from a film production house to India’s first fully integrated independent film studio.”
