'Gunday' pays tribute to Yash Chopra

Mumbai: Ali Abbas Zafar`s `Gunday` will pay tribute to late filmmaker Yash Chopra with a 60-second montage in the beginning of the film.

Chopra died in 2012 and `Gunday` was the last script he had heard.

It was Zafar`s idea to include a tribute to the filmmaker, known for directing great movies like `Deewaar`, `Kabhi Kabhie` and `Chandni`.

Chopra gave his inputs and suggestions to the director regarding the script of `Gunday`. He told Zafar to shoot the coal mine scenes at the actual location and not recreate it here, which was also his dream during `Kaala Patthar`, said a statement.

"It was Ali Abbas Zafar`s idea, he was very, very keen as this was Yashji`s last script that he had heard. This was an emotional moment for Ali," said a source from Yash Raj Films, which has produced `Gunday` as well.

Releasing Friday, the film features Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra.
