Yash Chopra's parents wanted him to be an engineer, but he was wed to cinema as he entered into the world of cinema at the raw age of 19 years in 1951. But the desire of his parents that he be an engineer continued to reverberate through the rich catalogue of his creations that he has left behind, as each of his craft, be it successful or a failure commercially, is an engineering marvel, characterized by innovation in one form or the other that has enticed and won the customers across generations in the form of footfalls as also by being a part of the discourse among the fans and the aficionados.

It is the scientific bend of mind that triggers the urge to innovate and right from the very first film that he was associated; he had this desire to unsettle the triads of society and question its beliefs and ideologies to make it more humane. Here is a tribute to these social films made by Yash Chopra.

It also is fortuitous that the man who made romance synonymous with Kashmir, when he shot KABHI KABHIE in Kashmir returned to direct his last film JAB TAK HAI JAAN in Kashmir as well. He was indeed the king of white romance, who gave white color, otherwise associated with melancholy a new dimension and made it synonymous with romance. Yash Chopra had this desire to follow in the footsteps of Raj Kapoor and it must have been Raj Kapoor's penchant with white that Yash Chopra also imbibed as his romance, which made him a king of romance was synonymous with white.

When one talks of romance the films that Yash Chopra made indeed have become a trail blazer for romance for the years and the decades in which they were made. To pay tribute to the memory of this romantic here is a tribute down the memory lane through the romantic oeuvre that he has left behind and would be the shining beacon for romantics all over the world till romance is alive:
