This award was presented to him at a glittering award ceremony organized at the Sofitel Central Plaza Hotel on December 9th. What made this proud moment more special was that he was the first Indian to be honoured at CineAsia Awards.
"Yash is undoubtedly India's most influential film maker. As both a director and a producer, Yash encompasses a strong combination of creativity and administrative genius," stated Mitch Neuhauser, co- managing director of CineAsia. "It is an honor to pay tribute to such a legendary figure and indisputable leader in the Indian Film Industry."
On receiving his CineAsia Lifetime Achievement Award, Yash Chopra said, "This is an honour for India. I understand that CineAsia is honouring an Indian for the first time. This should make all Indians proud. I am also happy that the contribution of Indian Cinema to the global entertainment industry is getting its due recognition."
