The era of romance based entertainment Hindi film-making has come to an end with the passing of Yash Chopra. He will be remembered for his delicate handling of love themes like Daag, Kabhi Kabhie and Mashaal. Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan owe their stardom to Yash Chopra.

The teenagers of the 1960s will greatly cherish the memory of Yash Chopra who was instrumental in presenting them with highly meaningful lyrics from Sahir Ludhianvi’s pen, upholding the secular values, through his memorable number Tu Hindu banega na Musalmaan banega (Dhool ka Phool, 1959). The king of romance had to his credit films like Dharmputra and Waqt, dealing with social issues.
