  • What you haters saying that SRK didn’t tweet about Yashji.Well SRK is in hospital right now.Have some Respect idiots.

  • some haters here bring their spiteful hatred
    in here even in death just to bring down srk
    shame on you
    srk is in th hospital where is time to tweet idiot

  • r.i.p.yashji.after “yash chopra” now “rohit shetty” n then “farah khan” will direct srk in his next movies.god save them.rohit n farah’s life is in danger.

  • He finished his mission on a sound note. His 80th birthday TV conversation with SRK was priceless. Yas Chopra will always be remembered as an icon of Indian Cinema. He leaves a proud legacy for his two sons to expand and carry on. RIP

  • Really shocking and sorrowful news. Unarguably one of the greatest ever cinematic directors,screen writters & producers of the indian cinema, yash chopra ji has left our materialistic mortal world to “pack up” for the one last time to descend into the holy heaven. My deepest condolences to his near and dear ones. My small ode to the great legendary immortal yash ji with this poem
    “such a great talent born on our great mother land,
    such a dreamer of visual creativity with a magic wand,
    those magics he ‘directed’ refuses to
    vanish from our memories and hearts too,
    his ”deewar” broke the walls of a certain
    amitabh’s ‘superstar-less dom’,
    the dialogue ‘mere pass…… …. .Mere pass maa hai’ still continues to sentimentalize some, his “kabhi kabhie” penetrated deep into our hearts,
    with poetrical romance & fragrance of all sorts,
    his “chandni” even humbled the symbolically beautiful moon,
    sridevi ji’s beauty,grace,elegance & performance was such a croon
    his “lamhe” gave bollywood one of its better moments
    when bollywood’s empire got extended to many firang lands,
    his “DTPH” and “VEER ZAARA” won millions of hearts & souls alike,
    long live his legacy, fame & contributions to cinema, we all like
    him for what he gave to the movie fanatics,
    his memories will live eternally as bollywood’s credentials.
    rest in peace!!!!

  • the successful person is that …..that he passed away being a muslim…….this world is nothing
    the real world is after death…..and we all think that what we are doing in this world will some one
    is present to ask about this that we do here………so YASH g was unfortunate person that he passed away without accepting islam…..regretted

  • Itna ghatiya soch insaan ko kaise ho sakta hain!shame to u trolls,u cant even spare a legend at his deathtime and use this opportunity to abuse srk!agar dil me achhayi ki ek boond bhi rahe to, for god’s sakePLS SHUT UP!

  • Though i will never ever like srk, i used his id above to express the feelings and i am sure srk himself wouldnt have any problem with my amateur poetry. Yashji we really miss you and you were one of the brightest stars of bollywood which has succumbed to its ‘mortalness’. RIP!!!

  • Kitna bi jthj collection collect kar le . . We dont knw. . . But he ‘l be punished every time wen a single person go to theatre nd watch his film. . . Dis is 100 per true

  • shocking news!!! end of an era! Bollywood is now an orphan. His movies & songs will always remain in our hearts. RIP.
