Shah Rukh Khan kisses his favourite director Yash Raj Chopra on his 81st birthday at Jab Tak Hai Jaan promotional event in Mumbai.
Yash Raj Chopra celebrates his birthday with Shah Rukh Khan at a film promotion in Mumbai on September 27, 2012.
Yash Chopra announced Jab Tak Hai Jaan will be his final film as director.
Chopra has made some of Indian cinema's most memorable films such as Deewar, Kabhi Kabhie, Silsila, Chandni and Veer-Zaara.
Jab Tak Hai Jaan, with Chopra at the helm for the last time, opens in cinemas in November, eight years after his last project Veer-Zaara.
"I always tell everyone that if you do one film in your life, it should be a Yash Chopra film," Shah Rukh Khan said.
Veteran filmmaker Yash Chopra, who was admitted to a city hospital after being diagnosed with dengue, is on his way to recovery, sources said.
Chopra was admitted to Lilavati hospital in suburban Bandra on October 13 after being diagnosed with an attack of dengue.
"He is in the hospital and doing fine," hospital sources said, without divulging any more details.
"He is much better though still in hospital," a spokesperson from Yash Raj Films said. Chopra had announced his retirement from film direction last month.
The filmmaker is looking forward to the release of his upcoming romantic movie Jab Tak Hai Jaan which stars Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma in the lead. It is set to release on November 13.
In his over five decade old career, Chopra has made several hits like Deewar, Trishul, Chandni, Silsila, Veer Zaara and others.
