RIP Yash Chopra


Yash Chopra. Image found at The Hindu.

Yash Chopra passes away at 80 years of age, a few weeks before Jab Tak Hain Jaan,  the highly anticipated movie with SRK and Katrina Kaif, opens. Eerily, he had announced it would be his last. According to what I read it looks like he passed away from Dengue fever.

This is very sad news indeed, for the family and the film industry. He lived a creative and blessed life. His prolific career spans back to 1959 when he directed his first feature film Dhool Ka Phool.

Unforgettable Veer Zaara..

Thank you, Yash Chopra! You will live forever in the hearts of all Bollywood fans!

  1. oh wow…i can’t believe he’s dead…it’s like an end of an era. He has made some pretty incredible films. Bollywood wouldn’t be what it is without him.

  2. He will be missed… my first Bollywood movies were all Yash Chopra! :) And I have quite a lot not, checking this list, especially the SRK movies, but also the Dhoom series (that’s when I fell in love with Hritik, LOL)…
    R.I.P., Yash…
