Personal Quotes By Yash Chopra:
➯ We're making all kinds of films - English, Hinglish, sex, horror... this and that. It's a healthy trend. But for a film to run it has to have Indian values. For a film to be a blockbuster it has to be rooted to our culture
➯ We're making all kinds of films - English, Hinglish, sex, horror... this and that. It's a healthy trend. But for a film to run it has to have Indian values. For a film to be a blockbuster it has to be rooted to our culture. You can always make a good film but for it to be successful, you need God's blessing
➯ Films have been my only passion in life. I have always been proud of making films and will continue taking pride in all my films. I have never made a movie I have not believed in. However, though I love all my films, one tends to get attached to films that do well. But I do not have any regrets about making films that did not really do well at the box office
➯ I believe in my old style of making films. I think I have it in me to make a different film in my own area of romance. Films on human relationships never go out of fashion. Everyone says 'I love you' these days. But it's about how you say it
➯ I was in Lahore before the partition, so I don't believe that a border can truly separate Punjab. I still think of it as one
➯ My personal favorites among my directorial ventures are Ittefaq, Daag, Deewar, Kabhie Kabhie, Lamhe and Mashaal
➯ What is the point of making the film if the man doesn't marry the girl?
➯ I've always worked with big stars, but they know that I am only honest to the script. It is my Gita and I never changed it to please film stars or their egos. We spend months in writing a film, so I wouldn't like it if someone asks me to change it. That's why I like to finish a film as fast as possible once I start. But as far as performances are concerned, I give full liberty to the artistes. I have full faith in them
