At an emotion filled evening, Yash Chopra on his 80thbirthday, in conversation with Shahrukh Khanyesterday, took everyone by surprise when he announced his retirement from directing films post his Diwali 2012 release, JAB TAK HAI JAAN.
An enlightening trip down memory lane, from his early life and his first film, DHOOL KA PHOOL in 1959, Shahrukh took the master storyteller and the undisputed king of romance, through his life’s journey. Several identifiable and nostalgic memories dotted this lifetime of a truly passionate filmmaker. 22 films spanning a career of 53 years as a director; over 40 years as head of Yash Raj Films, and a lifetime of yeoman service to the Indian Film fraternity, Yash Chopra has stood for the one principle he strongly believed in all his life which was instilled in him by his mother, ‘Apne dil ki suno’, (“Listen to your heart”).
If you missed The Journey of a Legend, watch the conversation and celebrate and enjoy Yash Chopra’s illustrious journey.
This went out live yesterday exclusively on the YRF YouTube Channel and was extensively carried by all major TV channels and continues to reach out to millions of Yashji’s fans.
