Megastar Amitabh Bachchan remembered the “glorious time” spent with the ace filmmaker Yash Chopra on his 83rd birth anniversary.
Bachchan, 72, who delivered his career’s blockbusters with Yash Chopra including Deewar, Kabhi Kabhie, Trishul, Kaala Patthar, Silsila, Mohabatein, Veera Zaara and Bunty Aur Babli, posted few black-and-white pictures of them together on his Twitter page.
“Yash ji’s birth anniversary… Yash Chopra and the glorious times spent together…,” he captioned the pictures.
The Piku star also paid tribute to Yash Chopra’s filmmaker nephew Ravi Chopra, who too celebrates his birthday today with his uncle.
“Yash Chopra ji’s birth anniversary falls on the same day as Ravi Chopra his nephew… With whom I had great times too,” Bachchan wrote.
The actor has always been close to the Chopra family and also a recipient of Yash Chopra Memorial Award that has been instituted by the TSR Foundation of T Subbarami Reddy in the memory of the late producer-director, who died in 2012.
Two years later, Ravi Chopra, best known for Bachchan starrer family drama Baghbaan and TV series Mahabharat, died following a lung ailment.
