The museum will be unveiled by Aditya Chopra, YRF chairman and managing director, filmmaker.
“Given the rich history of YRF, the iconic films that the studio has given Indian audiences and how its films have shaped pop-culture of India, one can imagine that YRF Museum will truly relive the most defining moments in Hindi film history. There are so much never-seen-before history and nostalgia that fans of Indian cinema will be treated to when this museum gets constructed,” said the source.
It has been Aditya’s dream to build a museum, the announcement might go live on 50th-year celebration but the construction might not start soon.
The source added: “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 that are displayed in a grand fashion. YRF Museum is being planned with that sort of a grand design.”
This would be one of the most iconic museums in India dedicated to YRF and the legacy started by him.
