Recently, Netflix paid a tribute to the one of the Indian film industry’s finest directors – Yash Chopra.

The highlight of this four part documentary is an extensive interview of Aditya Chopra – who has never done an on-cam interview before.
Other than Aditya Chopra, there has been a special segment where Shah Rukh Khan spilled a lot of beans about working with Aditya Chopra and Yash Raj Films.
Do you know it was Aditya Chopra who was behind SRK’s popular “K-K-K-Kiran” stammer? SRK also shared how even though he was keen to do action movies, it was Aditya who saw him as a romantic hero.
Before Aditya approached SRK for Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, the actor shared, “Adi used to tell me, ‘Your eyes have something that cannot be just wasted on action’.”
It was Aditya who made Shah Rukh Khan realize that if he needs to be superstar in India, he needs to look beyond being an action hero.
In the interview Aditya Chopra remembered how he told SRK, “In this country, a superstar will only be that person who will be every mother’s son, every sister’s brother, and every college girl’s fantasy’.”
After watching the series, many netizens took to social media to express their views about the docu-series.
