Chopra said his family wanted him to become an engineer but he knew he wanted to direct films.
"My mother said do what your heart says. She gave me Rs.200 and said my blessings are with you. Go ahead and don't worry," recalled Chopra, who is about to release a new film, "Jab Tak Hai Jaan", starring Shah Rukh, in November.
Shah Rukh, who was the interviewer, made Yash Chopra sing: "Oh meri zohra jabin..." from his 1965 film, "Waqt".

Chopra, who made "Silsila" with an ensemble cast in 1981, said it was ahead of its times, even though the original casting was different.
