Chopra

Chairman

The enigmatic Chopra goes out of his way not to be photographed, and yet he’s responsible for what millions view. At Yash Raj, he has the deciding word on greenlighting, and his personal touch has resulted in some of the biggest Indian hits, including “Sultan,” “Dhoom 3” and “Tiger Zinda Hai.” Although 2018’s “Thugs of Hindostan,” while profitable, did not meet humongous audience and industry expectations, the comedy-drama “Hichki” made a mark in China. Chopra has kept the family-owned company close, avoiding the risks of corporatization, while continuing to expand its distribution base. He debuted as a director with the romance “Dilwale Dulhania le Jayenge” in 1995, which has been playing in a Mumbai cinema for 24 years. He was inducted into AMPAS in 2018.
