As Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani completes 10 years, Ayan Mukerji gets emotional and reveals, ‘I don’t think I’ve ever seen him…’


10 Years of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani – The film was released in 2013 and was declared a blockbuster.

Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Aditya Roy Kapur and Kalki Koechlin’s starrer Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani turned 10 years old since its premiere on Wednesday. Produced by Karan Johar and directed by Ayan Mukerji, the film was released in 2013 and was declared a blockbuster. The non-linear back-and-forth format and narration from Padukone’s Naina’s point of view make the film sympathetic and immediately hit the nerves. YJHD has a lot of replay potential because of the way the story unfolds while showing some sweet and simple moments.

As YJHD turns 10, filmmaker Ayan Mukerji took to his Instagram account and shared an emotional note, revealing that he never watched the film from start to finish.

And what we achieved with it, with all its perfections and imperfections, is a source of great everlasting pride to me! Strangely, I don’t think I’ve seen Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani completely from start to finish, since the day it launched… (Always pushing towards the next milestone, and without looking hard enough…! )”

Mukerji further shared the director’s note, which read, “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is a cocktail of all these encounters and obsessions… It is a story of the thrilling and terrifying journey of four characters as they navigate through their youth; of their laughter carefree as they vacationed together in their college days, until their bittersweet tears at seeing the first of their group get married is an effort to somehow capture the spirit of their lives, wrestle with it, and deliver it to our audience in one bottle. So it could make them feel happy, joyful, sad and nostalgic. And just like the characters in the movie, it could make them look for what it is, in all of the above, that really gives meaning to our lives.”
