Actress Kajol Left out of Yash Chopra’s Birthday Party Invite?Reuters

Bollywood diva Kajol, who was once Yash Chopra's favourite leading lady in his films, has not been invited to the late fimmaker's birthday party, according to reports. 

As Bollywood A-listers gear up for an event on 27 September in fond memory of Yash Chopra, Kajol will nowhere be seen.

The lavish party, which will see will the legendary director's nine leading heroines walking the ramp along with Yash Raj Films' (YRF) brand boy Shah Rukh Khan as the show-stopper, will have Kajol miss the entire event.

"Kajol too was supposed to attend this event where nine of Chopra's heroines will take to the ramp. But she has not received any formal invite to the bash and may not appear for the show at all," a source told Mid Day.

Kajol, who scored a carrer-hit in 1995 with Yash Chopra's production "Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge", worked with YRF again in the 2006 blockbuster "Fanaa" opposite Aamir Khan.   

The reason can be gauged at the ongoing animosity between Kajol's actor husband Ajay Devgn and the YRF production house (YRF).

It may be recalled that Ajay had filed a complaint against YRF for blocking screens in 2012 during the release of Yash Chopra's last directorial "Jab Tak Hain Jaan" which eventually affected Ajay's film "Son of Sardar". This went on to create tensions between the Chopras and the Devgn household.

"The case between the two parties is still on and Ajay who claimed that his film received lesser screens because of YRF's policy, is still waiting for the judgment," said the source.

But what has clearly been a dampener for Kajol, has proved to be an opportunity for budding actress Parineeti Chopra. The young actress, who is only three films old, has reportedly been invited to the event. It is not known if Parineeti will walk the ramp along the likes of Madhuri Dixit, Sridevi, Rani Mukherjee, Katrina Kaif and others. 

Meanwhile, the late filmmaker's wife Pamela is overlooking the party arrangements personally and has penned down select invitations for the party.
