Here’s another scoop and you have heard it first only on


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 IndiaFM 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.
