Yash ChopraDirector Yash Chopra has shared a long association with Sunil Dutt. The actor memorably starring in Chopra's films Waqt, Faasle and Parampara.

The veteran director expresses anguish about Duttsaab's death in a brief interview with Patcy N .

I didn't believe it when you called me that Duttsaab is no more.

I travelled with him just a month ago to Delhi. I knew Duttsaab for more than 51 years. It is such a long friendship; people don't remain friends for so many years.

Have you met Sunil Dutt? | Pay homage

He was such a wonderful human being. As an artist, as a producer, as a director, as a husband, as a father and as a friend, you can't find such integrity, honesty and sincerity. He went for a padh yatra (rally) from Mumbai to Amritsar (in 1988), not for personal gain, but because he believed he should do so for the peace of the country. In whatever he did -- politics or films -- he was sincere.

Sunil Dutt on !

Sunil Dutt is no more

What made Sunil Dutt a star

Remembering Sadhana

Jo bhi filmo mein kaam kiya voh bilkul lagan se, dil se kiya; un par koi daag nahi laga sakta. (Whatever he did in films, it was with great dedication, and from the heart; no one can reproach his sincerity) He gave his best to films.

I first met him when we were trying to sign him for Ek Hi Rasta. At the time, he used to work in radio. Then I met him at a studio in (Mumbai's) Peddar Road. After that, we were very close friends. We worked in so many films together. I was an assistant to my brother (director B R Chopra) for Ek Hi Rasta and then Sadhana.

If I told Duttsaab what work (I needed him to do), he was always ready, even for a guest role.

I have never seen such a decent human being.
