Dengue takes romance out of Bollywood; a Silsila ends

Veteran filmmaker Yash Chopra, 80, died in Bandra’s Lilavati hospital on Sunday, a week after he was admitted and diagnosed with dengue fever.
A source said Chopra was critical during his hospital stay. “He was ill for some time and delayed coming in for treatment. After being admitted, his platelet count dropped and he suffered multiple organ failure,” said the doctor, requesting anonymity.
Chopra is survived by wife Pamela and sons filmmaker Aditya Chopra and actor-producer Uday Chopra.
Friends across the Hindi film industry expressed sadness at the passing of the ‘King of Romance’. “Yashji had a trademark style of presenting love and romance. He will be missed and remembered forever,” said filmmaker Subhash Ghai.
“I’m shocked! Yashji was a true veteran. An era is over with his passing. He’ll be missed,” said actress Kajol.
Chopra is best remembered for redefining celluloid romance in films such as Chandni, Lamhe and Dil Toh Pagal Hai. He also made social dramas, including Deewar, Trishul, Kabhie Kabhie and Silsila. Most of his films, irrespective of the genre, went on to become blockbusters.
Chopra’s death throws the spotlight on dengue fever in Mumbai that has reported the most cases in the state, according to government statistics. This rise in cases has been attributed to the fluctuating weather and extended monsoon that created a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes.
“Less than 1% of all dengue cases are fatal,” said Dr Khusrav Bajan, consultant intensivist, PD Hinduja hospital who handles at least seven cases a day. However, the old and infirm, like Chopra, fall in the high-risk category. Elderly people with co-morbid factors like diabetes and low immunity have a high risk of succumbing to dengue, emphasised Bajan.
Doctors also warned against a delay in consulting a doctor in case of fever. “Symptoms of dengue include pain behind the eyes, body ache and high fever,” said Dr Pratit Samdhani, consultant physician, Jaslok hospital.

Yash Chopra cremated
By PTI, Monday, October 22, 2012
With moist eyes and prayers on their lips, family and friends bid farewell to Indian cinema's King of romance Yash Chopra at a crematorium in Mumbai this afternoon.
Bedecked with flowers, Chopra's body was brought to the Pawan Hans crematorium in Juhu in an ambulance, with only family members and close friends inside, including his sons Aditya and Uday, and actors Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan.
The mortal remains of the 80-year-old filmmaker were consigned to flames amid the presence of his family members, relatives and a number of Bollywood celebrities.
The body was kept at the Yash Raj Films studio since last night for people to pay their respects.
Several Bollywood celebrities including Rani Mukerji, Preity Zinta, Prasoon Joshi, Mukesh Bhatt, Raj Kundra, Suresh Oberoi, Siddharth Roy Kapoor, Kiran Rao, Rohit Shetty, Bharat Shah, Adnan Sami, Rajpal Yadav and Homi Adjania were present at the crematorium.
There was chaos outside the Yash Raj Films studio as hundreds of people turned up to catch a glimpse of the filmmaker.
Chopra passed away at the Lilavati hospital at 5.30 PM yesterday due to dengue and multiple organ failure.
Salman Khan, Karan Johar, Dilip Kumar with wife Sairo Banu, Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Jaya, Madhur Bhandarkar, Anil Kapoor, Sridevi, Boney Kapoor, Kajol, Dimple Kapadia, Rinkie Khanna and others started coming since yesterday at Lilavati hospital, his residence in Juhu and YRF studio in Andheri to pay their last respects.
Chopra, who celebrated his 80th birthday on September 27, had announced his retirement from direction after a career spanning five deacades.
Jab Tak Hai Jaan, his 22nd and last film, starring SRK, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma is slated to release on November 13. A song from the film was to be shot in Switzerland on a grand level but the trip had to be cancelled after Chopra was admitted to Lilavati hospital on October 13.
Born on September 27, 1932 in Lahore, now in Pakistan, Chopra was the youngest of eight children, one of whom was elder brother B R Chopra, who was already an established name in the film industry.
Chopra came to Mumbai with Rs 200 in his pocket and dreams of becoming a filmmaker though his family wanted him to take up the profession of engineering.
He started his journey in the film industry as an assistant to I S Johar and later worked under his elder brother, making his directorial debut in 1959 with Dhool Ka Phool.
A trendsetter, Chopra directed Dharamputra, Ittefaq and Indian cinema's first multi-starrer Waqt.
He set up his own production company Yash Raj Films in 1970 and made his first movie Daag under the new banner. Chopra then helmed Deewar, which gave Amitabh Bachchan the image of Angry young man. He directed other intense films like Trishul, Kaala Patthar, Mashaal, Vijay before shifting to romance genre with Silsila and Kabhie Kabhie, again with Bachchan.
Romance became the main element in Chopra's later films like Chandni, Lamhe, Dil Toh Pagal Hai and Veer-Zaara.
Chopra is also remembered for making the careers of many Bollywood actors, including Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan.
Later, the family of the veteran filmmaker, including his sons Aditya and Uday, took the body in an ambulance to Pawan Hans crematorium in Juhu for the last rites.
A bus was arranged for staff members of the YRF studio who want to go to the crematorium ground while the celebrities drove in their own vehicles.
In the morning, a number of celebrities came to pay their last respects to Chopra at the Yash Raj Films studio, where his body was kept from last night.
Dunno whether to post this or not.. It's just...............
Saw Zoom tv @ 7p.m. today.. Srk was sitting outside Yashji's ward @ lilavati hospital,Mumbai.. He looked totally shattered & broken.. He was touching his hair every sec, he was very deep-in-thoughts.. Salman khan came out.. Saw Shahrukh, called katrina out.. katrina came out, bt went out hand-in-hand.. Shahrukh ws sitting on floor.. I couldn't control.. I wanted to hug him & say everything will b alright, Wanted 2 hold Shahrukh in my arms & cry out.. but couldn't.. I was sitting in my bean bag & cried silently..I couldn't see Shahrukh like tat.. His make-up man died 3 days ago & now Yashji.. My heart is heavy.. Want to console Shahrukh.. Wanted to tell please stop crying.. I never saw Shahrukh like tat before..This will always remain in my heart.. I'll nt be able to forget this..
Watching the people showing up for the funeral, I was struck with how many of men and women showed up alone. A few pictures of SRK showed him alone with his body guards. He looked like he needed Suhana and a good hug-a lot of them. Aryan must have gone back to school. Another picture showed Gauri showing up separately with a woman friend. Is all this separation traditional in India? In the USA, whole families go to funerals together and give emotional support to each other.
Thanks for the video reference. Zoom's website has a one minute video that must be part of the broadcast you mentioned. I feel like you do, reading your post, but was comforted when, at the end of the video, SRK and Gauri leave together. She was there for him.
Oh ok.. They didn't show that part in tv.. I would've watched that.. i'm feeling better know..thanks
so the final journey has been completed now.
Inna Lillahi wa inna ilaihi Raji'un. (Surely we belong to God and to Him we shall return)
Rest in Peace Yashji & Ravi dada.
I was informed about this tragic news yesterday, it was shocking to say the least. He didn't even get to enjoy the release and success of his last film. May his soul R.I.P. very sad (

Shah Rukh Khan, the Badshah of Bollywood was seen with a heavy heart and voice on the chautha of the legendary filmmaker Yash Chopra. The actor came in a white Kurta Pyajama and spoke his heart out. He spoke about all the beautiful moments he spent with the director.
Shah Rukh in a heavy voice said, "I have lost a father figure. When we were shooting in Kashmir Yashji told me that this is his last film, that time I couldn't understand what he means by that but today I have understood it all."
The actor added, "Yashji had a different quality in him. Whenever he called up he use to introduce himself and say 'Hello Yash Bol raha hoon'. Then he would ask me, ' where are you?' as soon as I gave the answer he just use to hang up the phone without listening what I had to tell him."
SRK concluded by saying, "I'm happy that he had a painless death in his sleep. I'm sure Allah miya wanted to some entertainment and he took Yashji from us. I'm happy now the people back in heaven will get to see some good cinema and shiffon saris."
Those werre sweet words he said about Yash-ji.
