The close hand further added, "There is an urgency in the YRF clan to make big films with established stars."
Reportedly, Yash Chopra wants to start his film by early 2010 and release it by the end of the year.
Rafiq Gangjee of YRF says, "Yash Chopra's next directorial script has still not been finalised. The issue of casting arises only after that."
