    "I always tell everyone that if you do one film in your life, it should be a Yash Chopra film," Shah Rukh Khan said.

Filmmaker Yash Chopra, who recently turned 80, was rushed to Lilavati Hospital in Bandra on Saturday.

“He was admitted after being diagnosed with an attack of dengue. He has been kept under observation. He is feeling much better and should be home soon,” says a spokesperson from Yash Raj Films, when contacted.

According to a source at the hospital, the director-producer was feeling extremely weak before he was admitted.

"The filmmaker is currently lodged in the ICU on the sixth floor of the hospital. He is expected to be shifted soon to the eleventh floor as he is responding well to the treatment," reported a daily.

For the past few months, the filmmaker has been busy shooting his last directorial film, Jab Tak Hai Jaan, with Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Chopra. The film is slated for a Diwali release on November 13.
