'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' probably Yash Chopra's last film: Karan
"Yashji (Yash Chopra) is like my father. His birthday this year is very special because he is probably making his last film. All of our films are releasing this year but that film will be the most special experience of 2012," said the 40-year-old in an interview.
"This year is special not just for him but for the whole industry because Yashji's last film is releasing this year," he added.
Chopra turns 80 Thursday.
'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' marks filmmaker Yash Chopra's comeback to direction after eight years. His last was 2004 cross-border romance 'Veer Zaara'.
The film stars Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma and hits theatres on November 13.
Meanwhile, Karan is also excited about 'Barfi!' making it to the Oscars and he hopes the film gets shortlisted.
"I am thrilled to bits and I think what better film than 'Barfi!' to make it. I have gone on record to say how it was truly most spectacular film experience I have had in years. It's really everyone's wish come true that 'Barfi!' makes it and I hope it walks the red carpet next year," Karan said.
Karan's directorial venture 'Student of The Year', which he has made with three newcomers - Varun Dhawan, Siddharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt - releases on October 19.
