After several unpleasant instances when scripts of films were leaked out to the media much before they hit the theatres, Aditya Chopra is in no mood to take any chances with his next film, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, which is his third directorial venture after Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge in 1995 and Mohabbatein in 2000. Even though the Chopras have always been careful to keep their scripts under wraps, Aditya is being extra cautious with the Shah Rukh Khan-Anushka Sharma starrer, which will release on December 12.
Even as there are several rumours doing the rounds about the film's subject, news is that the director has guarded the script so well that even the unit members till today have no clue what the film is exactly all about.
Our source said, “Aditya does not follow the usual working style where copies of the script are distributed amongst unit members so that they have a fair idea of what the film is about. Aditya has got only three copies of the final script of Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi-one for himself, one for good friend Shah Rukh Khan who plays the lead and the third copy is for the first assistant director.”
Surprisingly, even the film's lead actress Anushka Sharma was only briefed about her scenes when she was on the sets. “Anushka had no idea about the story's detail. She was just given a brief narration when she was signed for the film. Whatever Anushka knew about Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi was only the parts she shot for,” added the source.
“The unit members have not even seen the film's rushes. Aditya has made a foolproof plan to ensure nothing about the film leaks out anywhere,” said the source.
Coming to some rumours about the film's subject, buzz is that Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi is a remake of the '70s hit Golmaal. It is also being said that it is about a 'plain jane' husband who transforms himself to be the man his wife desires. There are also rumours that Shah Rukh Khan plays a double role in the film. But the Chopras have chosen to neither confirm nor deny these rumours.
When contacted, Yash Raj Films spokesperson, Monica Bhattacharya, asked us to send her a text message to which she did not reply
