Honoured by the Swiss

Chopra, who has shot films like Faasle, ‘Vijay’, ‘Chandni’, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge in the country, among several others, was with his wife Pamela in Switzerland to receive the honour.

The 78-year-old head honcho of Yash Raj Films (YRF), one of Bollywood’s biggest production houses, was honoured with a silver plaque which will be placed on Hoheweg — Interlaken’s famous main street. The event was hosted by Urs Graf, mayor of Interlaken, at the Victoria Jungfrau Grand Hotel and Spa, where a special Yash Chopra Suite was also inaugurated.

To add to the honour, a Yash Chopra Train was launched as part of the Jungfrau Railways, Switzerland. According to sources, the Swiss dignitaries who were present at these functions, said that Chopra “has single-handedly influenced tourism to Interlaken as well as all of Switzerland worldwide through his films and has promoted the relationship between Switzerland and India in the most extraordinary way.” Chopra felt very grateful and was ecstatic with the honour.
