SRK, Dilip Kumar Pay Last Respects To Yash Chopra; Body Shifted To His Juhu Residence

Shahrukh Khan, Dilip Kumar sahab, Saira Banu, Anil Kapoor and Karan Johar paid their last homage to Yash Chopra sahab at Leelawati Hospital in Bandra in Mumbai. Yash ji passed away today evening. He was down with Dengue. Mr Chopra was last seen at Mr Bachchan's 70th birthday celebration on October 11.  A police inspector confirmed a short while back that Mr Chopra's body has been taken to his Juhu residence. According to unconfirmed reports, his last rites will happen tomorrow afternoon at 3 pm. The official press release from YRF has stated that they shall intimate the media about the details of the last rites later.


  1. I read on Twitter this morning of Yashji's passing. Monumental impact on Indian Cinema that will ripple effect for a very long time. So very poingant place in Time.


  2. I am deeply shocked by the news today.
    still can't believe that the "Jewel of India", the greatest director Yash Chopra passed away. Will totally miss him.
    His films was the greatest thing he ever gave to us. They always impressed everybody. I am so greatful for the magic he gave us ever.

    My condolences goes to his family and friends.

    My his soul R.I.P.

  3. Sad news for YRF fans from all over the world. May Yash Chopra's departed soul RIP. It appears that all celebrities who go for treatment into Lilavati Hospital do not return home and families should look into this matter carefully. Seriously did not think Mr. Chopra would lose life's battle to dengue fever from a supposedly reputable hospital. Jagjit Singh, Yash Chopra and so many other celebs have breathed their last at this place, I do hope its' medical care is up to par.

  4. Lilawati is one of the best hospitals in the country. Jagjit Singh ji had suffered a stroke. there was little to be done over there. As far as Yash ji is concerned, we don't know the details but his age must have been a factor.
