The forthcoming International Film Festival of India (IFFI) in Goa will pay homage to legendary Bollywood filmmaker Yash Chopra, who passed away in Mumbai on Sunday. Organisers of the festival said that they are preparing a special section to showcase Chopra’s work, who is known for his landmark films such as ‘Deewar’, ‘Trishul’, ‘Silsila’, ‘Chandni’ and ‘Dil to Pagal Hai’ during his career that spanned over five decades.
Chief Executive Officer of Entertainment Society of Goa, Manoj Srivastava, said they would pay cinematic tribute to the departed soul during the ten-day-long festival that would commence from November 20. According to him, they had earlier planned a tribute to the director at the festival, but will now pay a homage to him. The festival would be inaugurated by Bollywood star Akshay Kumar. Singer Kailash Kher and choreographer Saroj Khan would perform at the inaugural ceremony of the festival.
