Actor Prem Chopra, known for villainous roles in Hindi films, is closely related to the popular Kapoor Khandaan of Bollywood, professionally, as well as, personally. Prem is married to Uma Chopra, who’s the sister of Krishna Kapoor (wife of Raj Kapoor). Prem Chopra is also known for working with three generations of the Kapoor family.
He said during an interview, “I have relationships right from Prithviraj Kapoor to Kareena and Ranbir Kapoor. I was joking with Ranbir that when your son is born, I will be working with him. I did films with Raj Kumar, Shammi Kapoor, Shashi Kapoor, Randhir Kapoor.”
In a candid conversation with senior journalist Bharathi S Pradhan, Prem remembered Rishi Kapoor and Rajiv Kapoor who died in their 60s. Expressing grief at Rajiv’s sudden demise, he said, “I don’t know what happened but he was a great talent. He knew about cinema very well. He made a film that was very good but it was beyond time. It was about remarriage of a widow. People did not accept that subject. But otherwise, he was very talented. So, what happens in this industry is either you hit the bottle or you get depressed. That’s what happened to him, he was drinking all the time.”
About Rishi Kapoor, he said, “He was a very jolly person. We worked in many films together. The last film we did together was Rakesh Mehra’s “Delhi 6”.”
