Aditya Chopra to unveil YRF Museum as part of 50th year celebrations?

Planned on a grand scale, the museum will house costumes, rare posters and pictures and videos from YRF’s past

Published: 28th August 2020

Yash Raj Films, one of India’s largest film studios, is turning 50 this year. To mark the occasion, producer Aditya Chopra is planning to unveil a YRF Museum in Mumbai. The idea is part of the 50th year celebrations of YRF which is set to kickstart on the 88th birth anniversary of Yash Chopra.

“Adi is currently working on the blueprint of YRF Project 50 and there is definitely a huge plan to unveil the YRF Museum,” informs a trade source. “General public will have access to come in and soak in the legacy of YRF in this museum. If one has been to the massive studios in the US like the Fox Lot in Los Angeles, one could visit the museum that houses all the history, costumes, rare posters and pictures and videos are displayed in a grand fashion. YRF Museum is being planned with that grand a design.”

The source, however, stresses that it will take some time before work on the museum begins. “The announcement is most definitely going to happen as a part of the 50th year celebrations because it has been Adi’s dream to build a YRF Museum. But it will take some time to make the museum. So, it can end up taking a couple of years too,” the source adds.

YRF was founded by Yash Raj Chopra in 1970. Across five decades, the banner has produced and distributed some of the most definitive films of Hindi cinema, including Kabhie Kabhie, Chandni, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Mohabbatein, Veer-Zaara, Ek Tha Tiger and the Dhoom franchise. Their recent release, War, was the highest-grossing Bollywood film last year.
