There is humongous buzz around the upcoming birth anniversary of veteran filmmaker Yash Chopra on 27th September. Speculation is rampant in the corridors of Bollywood that the late filmmaker’s son Aditya Chopra is gearing up to announce a host of high-profile projects on the 88th birthday of his father, an occasion which also coincides with the 50th anniversary of Yash Raj Films.

According to several media reports, Aditya Chopra will announce around seven to nine big-ticket movies to mark the grand occasion. Some of these films will feature such saleable A-list Bollywood stars as Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Ajay Devgn, and Vicky Kaushal.
