After BR Chopra, his son Ravi Chopra forayed into making film. Now his sons Abhay and Kapil Chopra are all set to continue the legacy by making their debut in Bollywood.
According to Ravi Chopra, elder son Kapil will make his acting debut. He has done an acting course in New York. The youngest son, Abhay will be making his directorial debut in a film called Mitti which will go on floors in January. Speaking to us he said, "Mitti is about the importance of one's country. It has a message in it that if you don't love your country; you have no right to live in it. As everyone knows we are script conscious, even Abhay is concentrating on the script. Mitti's script is being done by Prakash Kapadia."
Apart from Abhay, his elder brother will also be foraying into Bollywood, however not as a director but as an actor. "My elder son Kapil will be making his acting debut in a film called Kohinoor which I am starting in November. We are currently working on the script."
His forthcoming film Bhootnath was on hold for some time which will restart in mid July. Two big stars from the industry- Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan will be seen together once again after Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna. He concludes, "Bhootnath is forty per cent done. It is a brilliant family subject and Amitabh plays grandfather to Shah Rukh's son. The rumour that the film was held up because of some problem between the two is baseless. We had put this film on hold because of Amitji's request as his mother was not keeping well."
Ravi Chopra is re-releasing his father's black and white film Naya Daur in colour.
