Shahrukh's Poem On Yash Chopra's 81st Birthday

Shahrukh Khan recited this poem at Yash Chopra sahab's 81st birthday celebrations in a Mumbai where a special fashion show was organised to remember his romanticism and love for beauty.

Carnations and lilies are hueless
When set by the face of my fair
A fine woven gold is worthless
When weighted against the wealth of her hair
Through arches of corals passes her laughter
That banishes care
And flowers spring afresh
Amongst the grasses
Wherever her feet may fare.


  1. I can imagine it was quite the affair. All present were affected greatly from the memories of years gone by. Too bad Kajol wasnt there...

  2. Shah Rukh said it was a poem written by a french poet and translated in english ;) The name of the poet is 'Pierre de Ronsard' (1524-1585)....and this tribute to Yashji was beautiful ! :)
