To paraphrase arguably the most famous song of Yash Chopra’s illustrious film history, Yash Chopra banaya gaya filmon ke liye (Yash Chopra was made for films). Unfortunately for the film industry and cinemaphiles alike, this King of Bollywood romance films has passed away at age 80. His career spanned over 50 years. The films, from Deewar to Darr to recent hit Band Baaja Baraat, centered on themes of love, and inspired generation after generation of film-goers. As tribute to him, please enjoy the classic Kabhi Kabhi, complete with poem:
His newest film titled, in a twist of irony, Jab Tak Hain Jaan (As Long as I Live), premieres at Diwali. Rest in peace, Yash-ji.
