Priyanka Chopra never got a chance to star in a film directed by late Yash Chopra but the actress is now planning to pay tribute to the legendary filmmaker by performing to a medley of his evergreen hits at the People’s Choice Awards to be held this weekend. PC was initially supposed to do an act around her last hit film Barfi but decided to switch it for this special tribute to Yashji.
The actress tweeted, “Writing cause I have an upheaval in my heart..was doing a Barfi act for People’s choice awards but since yashjis passing its like my childhood is over..been rehearsing for a befitting shradhanjali to Him. when I was a kid every time I saw the beautiful Juhi in darr or Lovely Madhuri in Dil Toh Paagal Hai or my fav Sridevi in lamhe or chandni I used to start pretending to be them..id steal my moms white saree and stand in front of a table fan and dance as if I was doing toot gayi toot ke main choor ho gayi with my hair flying..I pretended as if I was being serenaded by the man of my dreams… My one regret.. My one wish.. Yashji will never say action to me..my life as a Hindi film heroine will always be incomplete..I remember him laughing at me when I used to tell him about my obsession with his films..would anyone capture a woman’s beauty and heart the way Yashji did..? I Doubt.. But all ill say is.. Life is too short to keep wishes in ur heart..wish I’d told him I wanted him to just say action once to me..I’d walk in the background for him..I wish Jab Tak Hai Jaan so much success from my heart and
I’ll vicariously live my incomplete Yash Chopra dream through @iamsrk Katrina and Anushka…. Live out ur wishes..make ur dreams come true..fight for them..life is too short to take it for granted.. Sorry for my ranting..had to vent..”
