en Bollywood News Prem Chopra recalls “discussing girls” with Rishi Kapoor; calls late actor “jolly good chap”

Veteran Bollywood actor Prem Chopra recently shared heartwarming memories of his bond with the late Rishi Kapoor.

Veteran actor Prem Chopra, known for his iconic villainous roles in Bollywood films like Upkaar and Dostana, recently shared heartwarming memories of his late friend and co-star Rishi Kapoor. The duo continued to work together in films like Nagina, Naseeb, and Prem Granth.

Chopra and Kapoor shared a close bond, both on and off-screen. Their friendship began when Chopra delivered the now-famous dialogue "Prem naam hai mera... Prem Chopra" in Kapoor's debut film Bobby in 1973. This line, ironically, became synonymous with Chopra's name and launched him into stardom.

Recalling their early days, Chopra told ANI, "We used to be together all the time. He got all right, he got free from cancer, but then again got into a problem. He was a very nice actor and a jolly good chap. We used to discuss girls. We were having a lot of pranks with each other. There were so many funny things to do.”

Rishi Kapoor tragically passed away in 2020 after a battle with leukaemia. His passing left a void in the Indian film industry and in the hearts of his countless fans.

Their friendship transcended the silver screen, with the 88-year-old actor revealing a personal connection to the Kapoor family through his marriage to Uma Malhotra, sister-in-law to the legendary Raj Kapoor.

Speaking of the professional front, Prem Chopra was last seen in Animal, starring Ranbir Kapoor. Helmed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, it also featured Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol and Rashmika Mandanna. Despite getting polarised reviews, the film performed well at the box office.
