The late director's statue was unveiled recently by his wife Pamela and son Uday. It will be installed at the UTV STAR's property Walk of the Stars in Bandra Bandstand Promenade on February 15.
"Yashji was a dreamer," said Pamela. "He was a man who didn't just make romantic movies or romantic cinema, he romanced life, with love as the most important ingredient."
"Yashji understood the ever evolving nature of love, and brought alive its multiple facets on the silver screen during his career spanning over 60 years.
"Yash Chopra has been, is and shall always be the King of Romance in my life and in the lives of his fans," Pamela added.
