BR Chopra-

BR Chopra has passed away today, after years of giving us glorious movies like "The Burning Train," "Choti Si Baat,""Waqt" and "Naya Daur." A life well lived sir.


Much love to you.

PS: As Memsaab and Bollyviewer have wisely pointed out, the earlier pic I posted was Yash's! - Blame it on election-night maddness :D and Obama's speech, during which this post was written :D Thanks Bollyviewer- used your pic!

Really!!! That leaves only Yash Chopra to carry the torch for the 50s and 60s film-makers. The end of an era... He did make a lot of innovative movies and they were pretty progressive too (at least on women issues).

The photo is of Yash, BR's brother...

RIP BR! Thanks for all the great films through the years!

I just realised - the pic you've put up is Yash Chopra, not B. R. Chopra!

Haha- thanks for the heads-up guys! Election night euphoria made me muddled-headed (assuming I am quite sane at other times :D)
