Ace filmmaker Yash Chopra who gave the Indian film industry some of the biggest hits passed away today in Mumbai.

He will be remembered by millions.” tweeted the Prime Minister.

Long time collaborator, yesteryear superstar Dilip Kumar said, “Shattering, hard to accept. Yash was a brother and more than a friend. I am numb and have no words to express my grief -”

Film maker Kabir Khan who produced the recent blockbuster Ek Tha Tiger with Yash Raj films tweeted “One of the happiest moments of my life was when my first film began with ‘Yash Chopra presents’ I will always cherish my moments with Yashji”. Actor Akshay Kumar too said,  “I’m in shock and numb, can’t believe the news, the man who immortalised love, Mr. Yash Chopra is no more. May his soul rest in peace. My deepest condolences to the family”.

Yash Chopra, titled as the king of romance, was barely weeks away from his last release Jab Tak Hai Jaan.
