Yash Chopra's fondness for the colour white is no secret. 

Known to depict romance like a scenic dream and his leading lady as poetry in motion, almost every single creation from the late filmmaker features the purest of all shades in its most delicate form.

The legendary director's last film Jab Tak Hai Jaan is ready to hit the screens on November 13. And it too highlights Chopra's trademark virtue in Katrina Kaif's pristine wardrobe. 

Here's a look at some of his other memorable visions in white.

What do you expect from a leading lady named Chandni? A luminous Sridevi slips into every possible design in white for a major chunk of the romance and no one complains.

Although Chopra's multi-starrer featuring the likes of Sunil Dutt, Rekha, Farookh Shaikh and Deepti Naval was a flop, the imagery of the lovely Farah Naaz in crisp white churidars stays on.
