Big B remembers late BR Chopra
Legendry actor Amitabh Bachchan is one such actor who has seen the work of ace filmmaker BR Chopra’s minutely and has starred in most of his films. He walked down the memory lane and posted in his blog his experience working with late BR Chopra.
"He was a pillar of the industry. We've lost a stalwart. The core of humanism and social relevance remained with Chopra saab till the end," Big B wrote from Udaipur where he's currently resting. "Chopra saab and I go back a long way. I've worked for many years with him. When Chopra saab's son Ravi started his career as a director with Zameer, I played the lead in it," he added.
"Chopra saab, his brother Yashji and their family have given so much to the industry. Another brother Dharam Chopra was a cinematographer while a fourth brother was into distribution. So it's a family dedicated to cinema. They always believed in aesthetics and not just the commercial viability. One never came away from a B.R. Chopra film without absorbing a social and moral conflict. That's why his films are relevant even today."
Big B said that the departure of BR Chopra is a great loss for the Hindi film Industry.
