Megastar Amitabh Bachchan visited late filmmaker Yash Chopra's wife Pamela, remembering the times he had spent over the years at their place.

Bachchan, 70, paid the visit on Sunday, a week after the tragic demise of the legendary Bollywood filmmaker.

"...A visit to Pam, Yash Chopra's wife at their house just behind ours... memories of great times spent here in this residence of theirs...

"Holi celebrations, shootings, dinners and musical evenings, story discussions, songs... now a thing of the past," Bachchan wrote on his blog.

It was Chopra's 1975 film Deewar which sealed Bachchan's image as the angry young man. They even teamed up for films such as Trishul and Silsila.
