B R Chopra visits Whistling Woods


MUMBAI: Veteran producer B R Chopra visited Subhash Ghai’s media school Whistling Woods International on his 93rd birthday recently, to interact with the students about his experiences in the entertainment business.


Chopra was joined at the institute by his son, filmmaker Ravi Chopra and other members of his family. Students were shown scenes from a number of his films which included clips from his songless thriller Kanoon, his ground breaking court-drama Insaf Ka Tarazu, the black and white classic Naya Daur and his mega-serial Mahabharat.


Among Chopra’s other films are Nikaah, Pati Patni Aur Woh, Humraaz and Gumraah. Chopra was conferred the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 1998.


The WWI students presented him with a book on Buddha and a shawl and in return, the veteran filmmaker presented them a signed copy of a series of books on The Mahabharat.
