I don’t know about you, but my idea of romance surely has developed from the movies I grew up with. One thing common in most of my favorites was that they were directed or produced by Yash Chopra. One thing Bollywood is always remembered for is its rich cultural history in terms of romantic films. And the lead actors featured in these films, now have a legacy of their own. To name a few, Shah Rukh Khan, Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, and many more. Nextflix now brings to us a docu-series to celebrate this colorful history of Bollywood. And all of this by analyzing films by Yash Chopra and YRF, titled The Romantics.
The global streaming giant will release the trailer of the docu-series in 190 countries tomorrow. And it will also subtitle the trailer in 32+ world languages, given the reach of Bollywood across the world. It will also highlight the impact that YRF has had in shaping the equity of the Hindi film industry worldwide for 50+ years.
