As the legacy of the iconic #YashChopra is celebrated through #TheRomantics on Netflix, here are some trivias related to Yash Chopra and Yash Raj Films..
After Daag (1973), Yash Chopra was reportedly producing a film called #Gardish, directed by #PranMehra, feat. @SrBachchan #NeetuSingh and #ParveenBabi.

The film was eventually shelved, and the lead cast teamed up for #Deewar (1975).
In 1993, Yash Chopra launched another banner "Aditya Films Pvt. Ltd." under which they produced #Aaina (1993) and #YehDillagi (1994) - both directed by his assistants - Deepak Sareen & Naresh Malhotra, respectively.

Breakthrough for composer duo Dilip Sen - Sameer Sen.

Hateful Biased narrative of #JavedAkhtar

Wrote scripts to 24 Bollywood films wth writer Salim frm '70 to '82. Mostly crime-based.

#5 Mafia dons ruled Bombay then: HajiMastan, YousufPatel, KarimLala, VaradarajanMudaliyar & DawoodIbrahim. But his films never had a Muslim villain.
In the film #Deewar scripted by #JavedAkhtar it was a familiar narrative. Hero was an atheist who wears a #786 badge which saves him when shot. Clever!

Just like this script writer who claims he was an atheist but never spoke against Pakistan or Jihadis or Muslim terrorists.
From 1983 to 2006, #JavedAkhtar scripted 14 more films but never shown a Muslim negatively. So from 1970 to 2006, in 38 films, not a single Muslim character was a villain.

But the villain was always a Hindu! Coincidence or planned? You decide.
