Shah Rukh Khan, who has worked with legendary director late Yash Chopra in four movies, said that the sudden death of Yash Chopra was a huge personal loss.
“Whenever my loved ones depart, I feel a part of me extinguishes itself with them. Will there come a day that I will no longer have a bit of myself to let go of? And then the thought follows ... that every time they have taken some of me with them onto their last journey, I have found a fragment of them left inside me too,” posted Shah Rukh Khan on his Facebook wall.
“I will always have some love to give and I will always be both emptied and replenished by the loved ones I lose. I keep u with me Yashji and I miss u too Yashji ... lots,” he added.
Yash Chopra, who turned 80 on September 27 this year, succumbed to dengue and multiple organ failure and passed away on Sunday evening.
The veteran director was cremated today afternoon.
Yash Chopra and Shah Rukh Khan have worked in movies ‘Darr’ (1993), ‘Dil Toh Pagal Hai’ (1997), ‘Veer-Zaara’ (2004) and yet to be released ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ (2012).
‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ is director Yash Chopra’s last movie and stars Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma in lead roles. The movie is touted to be a typical Yash Chopra romance.
The movie will release on the auspicious occasion of Diwali on November 13.
