Mumbai:Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan had this to write in his blog after Yash Chopra's passing away :
An association of 44 years abruptly comes to an end. He went away too soon and too suddenly. He deserved to be with us longer. Yash Chopra, a friend first, a creative legend later, has passed away this evening in the late hours.
I last saw him, as do you from the pictures above, on my birthday celebrations. He was indisposed and the doctors advised him rest, but he was insistent on coming over.
He had made a commitment he said. He had been asked to speak, one among four others that did that evening, over the sit down dinner.
