UK's Channel 4, one of the UK's most popular and acclaimed channels, and second only to the BBC in popular perception, is paying tribute to Yash Chopra through a film festival specially created in his honour.

Starting September 10, and continuing right up to November 6, titled 'The World of Yash Chopra', the festival will be aired on Mondays on Channel 4, a release said.




Coming close on the heels of Chopra being awarded the membership of BAFTA, this is yet another indication that Hindi movies in general, and Chopra movies in particular, have begun to reach out to a very wide community of British viewers, more than just Indians residing there.

Reacting to the news, Chopra said in Mumbai, " I am truly grateful for this honour. It has always been my belief that at Yashraj Films we make movies for the entire world, and this special festival simply reaffirms this belief".

Each of the movies will have a special introduction either by Chopra or the director and star of the movie. No other Indian filmmaker till date has had a festival of such extended length devoted to him or her on one of the most important TV channels in the UK.

Included in the festival will be films both directed by Chopra or produced under the banner of Yashraj Films.

The festival aims to introduce a wide section of British television audience to the more contemporary films of Yashraj films, as well as past hits directed by Chopra. The films directed by the auteur, which will be a part of the festival include his recent magnum opus Veer Zaara apart from, Dil To Pagal Hai , 'Darr' and 'Lamhe'.

Also part of the festival are the latest Yashraj Films blockbusters Dhoom , Hum Tum and Bunty Aur Babli . The festival wraps up with the Aditya Chopra directed Mohabbatein on November 6.
