Remembering Yash Chopra, the legendary filmmaker of Bollywood, on his birth 87th birthday today.

Romance was said to be Yash Chopra’s forte, but he was also a film-maker who reached out to various sections of society. Each of his films had an appealing theme. More importantly, he commanded a following where cinema became a family viewing. He could give a social drama like Waqt, away from sombre offerings like Dharmputra and Dhool Ka Phool, and he could pack action and emotions as he did in Deewar, Kala Patthar and Trishul. Not to forget is the romance in movies like Silsila, Chandni, Dil To Pagal Hai and Veer-Zaara.

Yash Chopra left behind some movies that will remain treasures of Hindi cinema for many years to come.
