Aditya Chopra (born 21 May 1971) is an Indian film director, producer, screenwriter, broadcast producer and distributor. His work as a director includes Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995), Mohabbatein (2000), Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008) and Befikre (2016).

In December 2009, YRF rejected an acquisition bid by Walt Disney, valued upwards of ₹2500 crore, to remain as an independent entity. Apart from emerging as an equitable brand, his company has earned the status of a movie mogul in Indian entertainment, with distribution networks spread across the globe. With a majority of his work being part of the highest grossing Indian films of all time, the company is estimated to be net worth ₹6200 crore (as of the second quarter of Fiscal 2015) by multiple NSE and BSE analysts, there ...
