10 years of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani: Ayan Mukerji reveals he hasn't watched Ranbir-Deepika starrer from beginning to end
Taking to his Instagram handle, Ayan dropped the teaser of the 2013 movie, and wrote, “YJHD - My second child, a piece of my heart and soul - 10 years old today!"
As the Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone starrer Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani clocked 10 years, director Ayan Mukerji took a stroll down memory lane. He took to social media and penned a long note revealing that he hasn’t seen his movie fully from beginning to end. However, he has planned to watch it at least once a year when he will be older and wiser.
Taking to his Instagram handle, Ayan dropped the teaser of the 2013 movie, and wrote, “YJHD - My second child, a piece of my heart and soul - 10 years old today! I think after all these years, I can confidently say that…Making this movie was one of the greatest joys of my life! And what we achieved with it - with all its perfections and imperfections - is a source of great eternal pride for me!”
He further revealed, “Strangely, I don’t think I’ve ever seen Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani fully from beginning to end, since the day it released …(Always pushing towards the next milestone, and not looking back enough…!)But when I’m older and wiser - I think I will watch the movie atleast once a year - because a big part of who I was and how I looked at life - is forever captured in this movie !”
The filmmaker also added that he still meets people who talks about Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, even after the release of Brahmastra. “In the recent months, I have often had people recognise me and come up to me… and I’m thinking they will say something about Brahmāstra, and then they started talking about YJHD ! So, putting out a whole lot of gratitude for Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani… and all the many people who connected deeply with the movie over the years !
Also sharing a Director’s Note I had written at the time, in my story which someone special from my team shared with me a few days ago… and it brought back all kinds of memories for me !Yup :),”he concluded his post.
Meanwhile, the official synopsis of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani read, Kabir(Ranbir) and Naina(Deepika) meet during a trekking trip where she falls in love with him but refrains from expressing it. They soon drift apart but end up meeting at a friend's wedding. Backed by Dharma Productions, the film also stars Aditya Roy Kapur and Kalki Koechlin in pivotal roles.
