As Yash Chopra’s birthday approaches this year on 27th of September, Pamela Chopra has personally taken up the planning of the grand celebration which is a fashion show of India’s first cinema inspired ethnic couture brand, Diva’ni.

Nine actresses from the film industry, who have been a part of Yash Chopra’s films will be walking the ramp for the fashion show at YRF studio.The list includes yesteryears’ beauties as well as today’s divas. Sridevi, Madhuri Dixit, Juhi Chawla, Rani Mukerji, Preity Zinta and Katrina Kaif will be a part of this.

All the actresses who will be part of the fashion show have been a part of iconic films of Yash Chopra and are readily coming together to walk the ramp for the fashion show on his birthday as their tribute to the creator of romance, Yash Chopra. Joining this list that currently includes the likes of Sridevi, Madhuri Dixit and Katrina Kaif, is none other than Shah Rukh Khan.The star will be the only male actor who will walk the ramp with nine Bollywood leading ladies at a fashion show that has been organised in the memory of Mr. Chopra.“Shah Rukh has agreed to do the honours. He will be the showstopper at the event. It was Pamelaji’s (Chopra; Yash Chopra’s wife) idea and he was more than happy to oblige,” says an insider.

On his 80th birthday last year, SRK had interviewed Chopra in front of a live audience comprising industry members and journalists at a grand event in the city. For the uninitiated, SRK starred in the last four films Chopra directed — Darr (1993), Dil To Pagal Hai (1997), Veer-Zara (2004) and Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012). Chopra breathed his last on October 21, 2012.

While Pamela Chopra couldn’t be reached for a comment, Rafiq Gangjee, the official spokesperson of the filmmaker’s production house, confirms the news, saying, “Pamelaji requested Shah Rukh to be part of this tribute to Yashji and he happily agreed to walk with all the divas as part of the grand finale.” As part of an ongoing initiative by Pamela, the veteran artiste’s birthday will be celebrated every year in a unique manner.
