Yashji’s absence saddens me deeply : Subhash Ghai

Filmmaker Subhash Ghai, who was very close to late director Yash Chopra has cancelled the anniversary celebrations of his production house Mukta Arts as a mark of respect to late filmmaker Yash Chopra.

Yashji has always stood by me. Whenever I needed him, he was like a guiding brother to me. He had seen me growing from an actor to filmmaker and attended every anniversary and every event of Mukta Arts.

Ghai said in a statement.

His absence saddens me deeply today (Wednesday) on the 34th anniversary of Mukta Arts. He was the first person to call me when high court ordered me to discontinue Whistling Woods Film Institute in Mumbai and asked me if I need any help from him. He extended full support. How can you forget these kind of giving people in life.

said Ghai.

Yash Chopra died Sunday. He was 80.
