Subhash has always called Yash Chopra his elder brother and he is now paying tribute to Yash Ji’s unparalleled legacy in Indian cinema. Subhash Ghai says, “Yash ji always treated me like his younger brother and respected my style of film making and graced all the premieres of my films and events. I always took his advice how to deal with situations in industry which I could not handle.He appreciated my vision of opening of Whistling Woods film school and inaugurated it. He was always there for industry welfare and was a great passionate film-maker of his time. A legend in true sense.”

    Subhash is hosting a screening of the much-talked about Netflix docu-series The Romantics, which is a tribute to the legacy of Yash Chopra & YRF and their cultural impact on India and Indians for the past 50 years, at Whistling Woods.
