Yash Chopra had a successful working and deep personal association with Shah Rukh Khan. On Saturday evening as the superstar received the 4th National Yash Chopra Memorial Award, he attributed his success in Bollywood to him, while recalling his journey with the celebrated filmmaker.
Shah Rukh is the fourth recipient of the award, which is given to a Bollywood personality for his or her outstanding contribution to cinema. Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, Lata Mangeshkar and Rekha are the previous awardees.
Calling the award the “biggest honour” of his life, Shah Rukh, in his acceptance speech, said, “This is one of the most important evenings of my life. I am very emotional. Yash Chopra has single-handedly created my career. It is a strange circle that I am receiving an award, which honours him and is in his memory, and I am who I am because of what Yash Chopra made me do.”
