‘Having the three Khans in The Romantics added so much insight to the series!’ : Smriti Mundhra on the three Khans coming together for the first time on screen for the docu-series
The much-talked about Netflix docu-series The Romantics, which is a tribute to the legacy of Yash Chopra, YRF and it’s cultural impact on India and Indians for the past 50 years, released on February 14 to unanimous acclaim and love.
The national over-pouring of love for Yash Chopra and YRF was evident as The Romantics became the Number 1 trending title on Netflix within 48 hours of its release, a rare feat for a documentary! Interestingly, this is the first time the three Khans, the triumvirate of the Hindi film industry, have come together on screen for a project!
Director Smriti Mundhra says, “While it’s pure coincidence that the three Khans – SRK, Salman & Aamir – appear together for the first time in The Romantics, in retrospect it makes sense. All three of these legends have shared an intimate professional and personal relationship with Yash Chopra and Aditya Chopra, and for that reason they were each on my list of hopeful interviews. Besides being huge stars, they are also each thought leaders of Indian cinema and having them in The Romantics added so much insight to the series.”
From Aamir Khan to Salman Khan, from Shah Rukh Khan to Ranbir Kapoor, from Amitabh Bachchan to Ranveer Singh, from Rani Mukerji to Hrithik Roshan, from Katrina Kaif to Anushka Sharma, the mega-stars and icons of Hindi cinema have come together and spoken about Yash Chopra and YRF’s contribution to Indian cinema in The Romantics.
