Netflix`s upcoming docu-series `The Romantics`, celebrating the movies of Yash Chopra, will feature a rare appearance by his son, producer Aditya Chopra.
The four-part docuseries is dubbed as a tribute to late Yash Chopra, who directed classics such as `Silsila`, `Lamhe`, `Kabhi Kabhie`, `Veer-Zaara`, `Dil To Pagal Hai` and `Chandni`, and also established Bollywood powerhouse studio Yash Raj Films.
Aditya Chopra, who is himself a director as well as a producer, will feature in the docu-series along with other leading voices of the Hindi film industry, including the mega-stars who have closely worked with YRF through its existence.

Often considered media-shy over his lack of public appearances, the movie mogul is currently in charge of overlooking the daily operations of the YRF. The last time Aditya gave an interview was for a print magazine in 1995. As superstar Hrithik Roshan says in the trailer, Aditya Chopra is regarded as the brain who shaped “the contours of the industry” and hearing him share insights about YRF is a huge highlight for the film fraternity, cinephiles and Hindi cinema audience at large.
As a filmmaker, Aditya Chopra has directed movies such as `Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge`, `Mohabbatein`, `Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi` and `Befikre`. His producing credits include titles such as `Saathiya`, `Dhoom` series, `Bunty Aur Babli`, `Kabul Express`, `Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year`, `Band Baaja Baaraat`. He is also the main architect of YRF`s ambitious spy universe which includes Salman Khan-led “Tiger” films, Hrithik Roshan`s `War` and Shah Rukh Khan`s `Pathaan`.
