Directors pay their homage to Yash Chopra

With Jab Tak Hain Jaan, Yash Copra's last film, inches away from its release date, the industry was left in shock with reports of the director's demise. Cutting across genres of Indian cinema, directors paid their condolences in respect of the legendary king of romantic cinema Yash Chopra.

Madhur Bhandarkar couldn't hold his shock and told TOI, "We knew he was admitted in hospital. But yesterday, everyone said he is improving so we were optimistic. He was one film-maker who inspired so many directors. Though I make different kind of films, he inspired me. Yash Chopra made films on various subjects. His contribution is immense. And I will watch Jab Tak Hai Jaan first day first show. He was encouraging and down to earth."

Mukesh Bhatt to felt the industry was caught unaware. "No one expected this. For me he was a role model. There was not a single day when I used to not speak to him. Even when he was shooting in London he called me from there. It's a personal loss. I lost a friend. There is a vacuum which cannot be filled," he said.

Comic-movie specialist, Aneez Bazmee said, "With the sad demise of the legendary, the romantic era comes to an end. My heart goes for the bereaved family."

Bela Bansali Sehgal added, "A great loss to our country and our film industry!"

And as the legend moves to the heavenly abode, we can just pay homage to him and look back at the classics he left behind. RIP Yash Chopra.
