A moment frozen for posterity
Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan went out of his way and hugged and kissed Yash Chopra to make his 80th birthday special less than a month ago. Now that the veteran filmmaker has passed on, that love and affection showered by SRK couldn’t have been more befitting.
In the last two decades of his film career spanning half a century, Yash Chopra showed a special liking for Shahrukh Khan. Their association started in 1993 when Khan played a crazed lover in the hit movie Darr, and thereafter Chopra had the actor in every single film he directed, be it Dil Toh Pagal Hai in 1997, Veer-Zaara in 2004, and now the soon-to-release Jab Tak Hai Jaan.
It was a bond of genuine fondness between Chopra and Khan, quite palpable when the latter engaged the former in a heart-to-heart chat on the filmmaker’s 80th birthday on September 27.
SRK introduced Yash Chopra with eulogizing words: “60 years in the film industry, 53 years actively directing films, which perhaps is the longest to be credited to any director in the world!...22-films-old and 80-years-young, it is my privilege, ladies and gentlemen, to introduce to you the legendary, the one and only, Mr. Yash Chopra.”
SRK also made Yash Chopra sing: "Oh meri zohra jabin..." from his 1965 film, Waqt.
Here is a flashback of the interaction that took place less than a month back, when we couldn’t imagine that Yash Chopra would leave us forever in a few weeks’ time. May his soul rest in peace.
