Kamal Hassan, who knew Yash Chopra, has sent a letter to media about losing the iconic filmmaker of India. Find it below...
Dear Yash Chopra ji,
You wont be hearing this now. I wish I had told you this while you were alive. We admired you a lot, we got our confidence out of your work. I never clearly told you this, its not because I was conceited or narcissistic; sometimes we were so odd by the superior personality that you were.
Thank you Yash ji. I know it's a one sided conversation now. But, I have had the privilege of having long conversations with you. I don't know whether I clearly emulated my admiration for you. Doesn't matter now, many more generations will admire you.
Your family will enjoy the benefits of what you have done; the accolades, the income and all. What matters as an artist, is the applause. While I offer my condolences to the family who would want to mourn, I would rejoice the life you have lived.
