Actress Farida Jalal expressed her dissatisfaction with changing allegiances in the film business as well as her sentiments on the late director Yash Chopra recently. Farida related in an India Today interview how, following their work on "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge," Yash Chopra extended her an invitation to appear in "Dil Toh Pagal Hai". They would carry on working together, Yash Chopra promised her. But when she later sent him a message and heard nothing, Farida was upset. That she had been replaced thoughtlessly pained her.

After 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge,' Farida related, "Yash Ji phoned me for 'Dil Toh Pagal Hai.' Adi [Aditya Chopra] felt I wouldn't accept the job he stated he had for me. Never refuse me or Adi, Yash Ji advised me. 'Yeh silsila chalta rahein', he said. I was overjoyed and looked forward to the next assignment." She said, "Having someone else put in my position hurts. I even did a TV program on which Yash Ji left a message. Reminding him of his commitment, I mailed him chocolates. No answer hurts so much. Forgetting hurts."

With parts in films like "Aradhana," "Puraskar," "Gopi," "Amar Prem," "Raja Rani," "Loafer," "Do Jasoos," "Koi Jeeta Koi Haara," "Naya Daur," "Dil Aashna Hai," "Krantiveer," "Raja Hindustani," "Mohabbat," "Dil To Pagal Hai," "Soldier," "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai," "Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai," "Zubeidaa," "Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham," "Barsaat," and "Student of the Year."

She most recently starred in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's pre-Partition period series "Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar." The series also stars Manisha Koirala, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditi Rao Hydari, Sanjeeda Sheikh, Richa Chadha, Sharmin Segal, Fardeen Khan, Taha Shah Badussha, Shekhar Suman, Adhyayan Suman, and Indresh Malik.
