He just had to step on to a film set and he was a changed man. But his heart lay in the people who made up the industry. From the spot boys to the cameramen, from the editors to the actors, they made up his world. He was naturally a kind and empathetic person, who understood that being in the movie business is hard. Which is why it gives me great pleasure to announce the formation of the Yash Johar Foundation for the people of the entertainment industry.”
