My deepest respectful condolences on the departure of Sri Yash Chopra , one of the greatest filmmakers of all time in the world, who put magical,ethereal Indian style romance and emotion onto the universal map forever.
I had the honour of knowing him ever since the release of my very first debut film GAJAGAMINI which was distributed by Yashraj Films. He was one of the most gracious, gentle smiling and sweet spoken people I have ever known. He was always full of good words of encouragement for me.
Most recently, in one of the most touching moments of my life, I was fortunate enough to meet Yashji two consecutive days in a row, first at the magnificent Mumbai Premiere of ” English Vinglish” where I immediately went and sought his blessings and he wholeheartedly blessed my new film JANLEVA 555. And a day later, he was honoured at an award ceremony in Juhu and imagine my awestruck surprise when Yashji himself once again smiled and congratulated my very first home production and wished it all success. I was on cloud nine and realised that I my film would now be blessed forever.
In fact, we have dedicated to his great romantic style of songs , one song in our very own film JANLEVA 555 ” Aaona Aaona” tributing the evergreen locales and eternal love that he has always depicted in his magnum opuses.
He will remain a true inspiration forever for me as an actor/ producer and I shall look upon his highest standards of film making in all of my future films. He has become immortal in the world for generations to come through this great films. May Yashji’s soul rest in peace.
