"Legendary", "king of romance" and "a partner-in-crime" are some terms which have been used for late filmmaker Yash Chopra by Bollywood celebrities like Rakesh Roshan, Karan Johar and Anushka Sharma, who remembered him on his 85th birth anniversary on Wednesday.

Yash Chopra, who made his directorial debut with a melodrama "Dhool Ka Phool" in 1959, rose to prominence after his successful film "Waqt".

In 1971, he founded his own production company, Yash Raj Films (YRF), and launched it with "Daag". Some of his most iconic films are "Deewar", "Kabhi Kabhi" and "Trishul".

He also directed the commercially successful cult film "Chandni", "Lamhe" and "Darr" . He announced his retirement after "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" in 2012.

He bagged several film awards, including six National Film Awards and the Government of India honoured him with the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 2001 and the Padma Bhushan in 2005 for his contributions to Indian cinema.

British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) presented him with a lifetime membership for his contribution to films, making him the first Indian to receive the honour.

The filmmaker died of dengue fever in October 2012.

Here is what the celebrities tweeted on his birth anniversary:
