Veteran filmmaker Yash Chopra passes away Yash Chopra
Bollywood filmmaker Yash Chopra, held in high esteem by film fraternity and fans alike, passed away in Mumbai on Sunday, October 21.

The veteran had been admitted to Mumbai’s Lilavati hospital on October 13 after he was diagnosed with dengue. According to reports the filmmaker suffered multiple organ failure because of which he died. He is survived by his wife Pamela and two sons Aditya Chopra and Uday Chopra.

“He (Chopra) died of multi-organ failure. He was in the ICU,” a hospital official is quoted as saying.

Yash Chopra was 80 and had celebrated his birthday less than a month back. He was soon scheduled to fly to Switzerland to shoot a song on Shahrukh Khan and Katrina Kaif for Jab Tak Hai Jaan, which he had declared to be his last directorial venture.

On his birthday on September 27, Yash Chopra had declared his retirement from direction.

“Bahut ho gaya abhi. My heart says bahut ho gaya abhi. I will not direct any other film after 'Jab Tak Hain Jaan'. I have got lot of love in all these years. I think now the time has come to pay back. I want to help directors, actors, technicians who I could not help all these years,” Yash Chopra had said.

Mr. Chopra was born in Lahore on September 27, 1932. He began his film career as an assistant director to I.S. Johar and his elder brother, B.R. Chopra. He made his directorial debut with Dhool Ka Phool in 1959. In his career spanning half a century, Chopra directed several memorable films like Deewar, Trishul, Chandni, Silsila, Kabhie Kabhie , Veer Zaara and others. His last film Jab Tak Hai Jaan will release posthumously on November 13.
