Amitabh Bachchan was very close to
Chopra. It was Yash Chopra who gave Big B his second break in
Bollywood through Mohabbatein. In the past, Amitabh
Bachchan had worked with Yash Chopra in films like
Silsila, Trishul and Kala pattar.
According to a website Amitabh remembered Yash Chopra on his
Chautha and said, "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 Bachchan 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."
