Yash Chopra honoured at House of Commons

Bollywood filmmaker Yash Chopra was honoured at the House of Commons, London for his outstanding contribution to the Indian film industry.

The function was organised on Thursday by Indian origin MP Keith Vaz, MPs Tony Baldry and John Barett, to recognise the contribution of Yash Chopra in not only producing films with a message but also his role as Patron of the Roko Cancer Campaign in India.

"Indian cinema has made its mark in the world during the last 60 years. The honour is not for me but for the entire Indian film industry. Cancer is curable if there is timely detection. A great deal of work had to be done in rural areas in creating necessary awareness among the people,"
Chopra said about his cancer related charity efforts.
