Aditya Chopra on Uday Chopra: We Could not make him a Star
In the recently released Netflix docu-series The Romantics, the Yash Raj Films honcho, Aditya Chopra spoke about brother Uday Chopra and how despite being the biggest filmmaker in the country Uday couldn’t be a star.
Talking about the same he said, "One of the things that people tend to ignore, is that every person who comes from a privileged background is not successful. I can articulate it without mentioning other people. I can just articulate it by mentioning my own family."
He further mentioned: "My brother is an actor, and he's not a very successful actor. Here is the son of one of the biggest filmmakers. He's the brother of a very big filmmaker. Imagine a company like YRF who has launched so many newcomers, we could not make him a star."
In conclusion, he said that only the audience has the power in showbiz to make someone a star, "Why could we not do it for our own? The bottom line is, only an audience will decide 'I like this person, I want to see this person'. No one else."
The Romantics is streaming on Netflix.
