Sad, sad news today of Yash Chopra's passing, another in a series of recent deaths of some of Bollywood's most respected elders. Incredibly sad.
We all know about his movies. (Filmography at this IMDb link.) Deewaar (1975) and Naya Daur (1957), for which he served as director and assistant director respectively, are by far my favorites. From a higher-level view, just think about his influence in giving rise to the term 'Bollywood' and the perceptions attached to the term.
Also, can we go back to calling the upcoming Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012), A Yash Chopra Romance? Surely, his record in film was nothing short of a romance no matter how we look at it.
