AR Rahman, Kamal Haasan, Siddharth remember Yash Chopra

South stars who collaborated with the late filmmaker and admired him paid a tribute

Yash Chopra passed away due to multiple organ failure on October 21, 2012 and left the entire Bollywood and also the south film industries in shock. Music maestro AR Rahman who has composed the soundtrack of Chopra’s last directorial, the Shahrukh Khan-starrer Jab Tak Hai Jaan, remembered the filmmaker through a tweet. He said, “Respect, love and admiration for Yashji and his legacy ..may God bless his soul !”

Actor-producer Kamal Haasan, with whom Yashji worked closely at the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry during the FICCI-FRAMES seminars, recorded a touching audio message for the deceased filmmaker. Here is the transcript:

“Dear Yash Chopra ji,

You wont be hearing this now. I wish I had told you this while you were alive. We admired you a lot, we got our confidence out of your work. I never clearly told you this, its not because I was conceited or narcissistic; sometimes we were so odd by the superior personality that you were. Thank you Yash ji. I know it’s a one sided conversation now. But, I have had the privilege of having long conversations with you. I don’t know whether I clearly emulated my admiration for you. Doesn’t matter now, many more generations will admire you. Your family will enjoy the benefits of what you have done; the accolades, the income and all. What matters as an artist, is the applause. While I offer my condolences to the family who would want to mourn, I would rejoice the life you have lived.”

Haasan’s daughter and actor Shruti Haasan ‏also tweeted, “RIP yashji thankyou for the magic”.

Other celebs and their tweets about Yash Chopra are as follows:

R Madhavan: “RIP Yash Ji. Romance and Love shall forever miss you.Farewell and may the heavens above learn Love from you.”

Siddharth: “Mr. Yash Chopra is no more…a giant tree falls. Indian cinema will never be the same again…romance will never be the same again…sad day:(”

Resul Pookutty: ‏”Life is beautiful even if death is a reality in the end!RIP Yashji..”

Prabhudeva: “RIP Yashji… Numb and shocked. He will always live in our hearts through his films.”

Ravi K Chandran: “Deeply shocked . Really sad to hear the news . Such great man , a child like enthusiasm always , humble soul ..RIP yashji…you ll live among us ,as long as indian cinema exist ..and more years to come .”
