Yash Chopra's love for Pakistan!
Mumbai: Pakistani director Iram Parveen Bilal, who recently visited Mumbai, revealed that late legendary filmmaker Yash Chopra had a soft corner for Pakistan. Bilal, who has been very close to Chopra, also revealed her "long love history with Mumbai".

Talking to IANS, Bilal said, "I have a long love history with Mumbai. I came here for the first time in 2004... Every time I came here, I met Yashji. No matter how busy he was, he would take out 5-10 minutes for me. He used to give me his pearls of wisdom. But the fact that he is no more and I won't be able to meet him is heartbreaking."

She also said, "He (Chopra) was born in Lahore so he always had a soft corner for Pakistan. I was here when Veer-Zaara released and it was a friend of a friend who introduced me to him. He welcomed me with open arms. He was a humble man who wanted to inspire people. I took advice from him and he always said in Raj Kapoor's style, 'The show must go on'. I don't know anyone in his family, but I will go and pay my respects to him."
