Breathed Love & Romance in his films
Infused Beauty & Class in his Heroines
“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.” – Yash Chopra, Renowned Film Maker
The same way he believed in his heroines too…he made them look classy, charming, demure, ideal and empowered at the same time. His styling with chiffons, laces, dainty embroidery with flowing aanchals of beautiful sarees with flowing tresses, bindis and bangles, made them look, true DIVAS. Their fan following zoomed with every YRF release and they became stars overnight.
To add here, the quintessential Yash Chopra heroine was fierce in her ideals, traditional and optimistic, but a stickler for the opportunity. She was shy but not timid; she was principled but not self-righteous, she was mysterious but not evasive; she was the object of so many of our affections.
Almost all his heroines turned out to be trendsetters in every respect be it their look, styling, aura or acting. They guided the generation of that era…be it Rakhee, Sharmila Tagore, Rekha, Jaya Bhaduri, Sri Devi, Juhi Chawla, Rani Mukherjee, Preity Zinta, Parineeti Chopra, Anushka Sharma or Kajol, they mesmerised the audience under the YRF banner.
Yash Chopra would always remain in our hearts, the way he depicted love and romance in his films, which was unique, pure, ideal and many a time ahead of the times.
He has left behind a legacy of such iconic films that through his stories he will continue to live. The director, who can easily be credited for making several actors into superstars, will always live in the hearts of the moviegoers through his films.
From Sridevi, Kajol to Parineeti Chopra, the Yash Raj banner has launched, nurtured and guided many top A-listers in Bollywood. Yash Chopra is one of the most well-known names in the industry. The director and producer, Yash Chopra, founded his independent production house, Yash Raj Films, in 1971. He has given a breakthrough to several heroines under his banner.
I am a big fan of Yash Chopra films and his heroines for their histrionics in styling, look, beauty and acting, be her Rekha as Chandni in Silsila, Sri Devi as Chandni in Chandni, Juhi Chawla as Kiran or Kajol as Simran in DDLJ. I watched these films over and over and many times copied their sarees, bangles, bindis and overall looks…
But I was most enamored by Neetu Singh’s looks in Kabhi Kabhie…with short tops, bell-bottoms, frocks and side-flicks. I had those side flocks for long, till one day I was hauled up by school administrator for my flicks. Fond memories of those days…
As a tribute to great Yash Chopra ji, I have chosen Rekha Ji’s look for a song which is very close to my heart.
Undoubtedly, there can’t be any other Yash Chopra. https://youtu.be/jZLPESl8T-U
