About Prem Chopra :-

Prem Chopra (born 23 September 1935) is an Indian actor in Hindi and Punjabi films. He has acted in 400 films over a span of over 60 years. He has a soft-spoken diction despite being a villain in most films. His 19 films, with him as antagonist and Rajesh Khanna in the lead role remain popular with audiences and critics.

Chopra, the third of six children of Ranbir Lal and Rooprani Chopra, a Punjabi Khatri family, was born on 23 September 1935, in Lahore. After the partition of India, his family moved to Shimla, where he was brought up. He has studied in S.D. Sr. Sec. School, Shimla. His father desired for him to be a doctor or an Indian Administrative Services Officer.

Chopra completed his schooling and college from Shimla after his father, who was a government servant, got transferred there. He graduated from Punjab University. He took part in college dramatics enthusiastically. At his father's insistence, he completed his graduation and then went to Mumbai. Soon after he made his debut film, his mother was diagnosed with mouth cancer and she died, leaving his then nine-year-old sister Anju to be looked after by his father and his four other brothers. The brothers had given warning to their respective wives that only if their sister is happy, would they be happy and Prem considers his sister to be his first daughter. Noted writer-director Lekh Tandon brought the proposal of Uma for marriage to Prem. Uma was the younger sister of the siblings Krishna Kapoor, Prem Nath and Rajendranath. The couple have three daughters, Rakita, Punita and Prerna Chopra. Rakita is married to film publicity designer Rahul Nanda. Punita owns a pre-school called Wind Chimes in Bandra, suburban Mumbai, and is married to singer and television actor Vikas Bhalla. Prerna is married to Bollywood actor Sharman Joshi. He resides in a duplex apartment in Pali Hill, Bandra in Mumbai.

He became estranged with two of his four brothers in the late 1980s. Chopra had bought a bungalow in 1980 in Delhi, which was jointly owned by him and his father, and his father and one brother used to stay there. Chopra had gotten his brother a job in Delhi, and made him stay at the bungalow. But his father, a day before his death, was made to sign a will favoring one of his brothers, taking away Chopra's rights to the bungalow. Later, an income tax raid happened in that same house, and his brother said in the raid that Chopra had given them the bungalow, but the house still was in name of Prem Chopra. Chopra had two other houses in Mumbai as well, which were sold off cheaply by his other brothers without telling him, as they needed the money.

His biography titled Prem Naam Hai Mera, Prem Chopra, written by his daughter Rakita Nanda, was released in April 2014.

Recently, his sterling cameos in Rocket Singh-Salesman of the year and Delhi 6 earned him many accolades.  

Awards have loved to belong to this gifted actor. He has been recognized by FilmFare, Lions and Punjabi Kala Sangam amongst many others for his powerful performances.  

He has also created magic with live audiences displaying a special connect while participating in stage shows all over the UAE, Britain, America, Holland, Fiji Islands and Singapore.
