I have never seen Yashji getting angry, Big B
Ace filmmaker Yash Chopra is the one who gave Amitabh Bachchan’s career a new dimension after the megastar experienced few flops. ‘Silsila’, Trishul’ Kala Pattar’ are those few cults which raised Amitabh Bachchan’s career graph. It was Yash Chopra who gave Big B the required break after a long time in ‘Mohabattein’. Since then Amitabh did not look back and kept going and still he is going great guns.
Amitabh Bachchan and Yash Chopra’s association is more than 44 years. His sudden demise had shook the entire film industry and so Big B. No sooner, he received the news of his departure, he was among the few who visited him at the hospital. Amitabh with his family paid his last respect to the thespian at Yash Raj studio and also attended his prayer meeting.
Amitabh Bachchan remembers Yash Chopra on his chautha ceremony along with others. He said at the prayer meeting, "I have seen him as a friend and a superb personality. He had a big name but with that he had the quality of humanity and beong humble with people, which was not easy to posses at his position. I have known him since 44 years and have learnt a lot from him. We have seen a lot of good and bad moments. I have lived with him and seen his enthusiasm for work which at times he gave me also."
Amitabh further added, "In these years I have never seen him getting angry. He never spoke on a high pitch with anyone. He only had a pitch with the enthusiasm at work. The amount of love he showed in the films he had the same in his life."
It is really unfortunate that Yash Chopra fell sick the next day after attending Big B’s 70’s birthday. He attended Amitabh’s birthday with his wife Pamela Chopra.
Yash Chopra was rushed to Lilavati hospital following uneasiness and after
investigation, he was detected dengue. He was under medication and doctors
supervision at the hospital but after few days of stay, he departed.
