Legendary director Yash Chopra is no more

Bollywood was plunged in shock and grief as one of India’s most celebrated, successful, and loved filmmakers, Yash Chopra, passed away on October 21 in Mumbai’s Lilavati Hospital. He had been diagnosed with dengue on October 13 and died of multiorgan failure. Thousands, including Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan—with whom he had a deep and long association—and all his heroines, bid a tearful farewell to the icon.

Chopra, who celebrated his 80th birthday on September 27, had announced his retirement from direction after an illustrious career spanning five decades. He changed the face of romance in Hindi films and though he made different kinds of films, Chopra is most well known for his romantic blockbusters like Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Dil To Pagal Hai, Silsila and Chandni, besides Deewar and Trishul. His last film, Jab Tak Hai Jaan, is slated to release on November 13.
