Uday Chopra is an Indian Actor, Producer, and Screenwriter. He is currently the CEO of YRF Entertainment, a Hollywood-based production house focusing on creating movies for the United States and global audiences.
Uday Chopra was born on 5 January 1973 to filmmaker Yash Chopra & his wife Pamela Chopra in Mumbai, Maharashtra. He is the younger brother of filmmaker Aditya Chopra.
He studied at Bombay Scottish School in Mumbai and later did his Bachelor of Commerce from Sydenham College of Commerce and Economics in Mumbai. In 1994, he also did a Film Production Workshop at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, California, United States. 1
Hrithik Roshan and John Abraham were his classmates at Bombay Scottish School. 2
He began his film career as an assistant to his father Yash Chopra in the films Lamhe (1991), Parampara (1993), Darr (1993), and Dil To Pagal Hai (1997) & also assisted his elder brother Aditya Chopra in Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (1995).
He made his acting debut in Mohabbatein (2000) directed by his brother Aditya Chopra. The film starring Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai, Uday Chopra, Shamita Shetty, Jugal Hansraj, Kim Sharma, Jimmy Sheirgill, and Preeti Jhangiani was a box-office success and it became the highest-grossing Indian film of the year.
Uday went on to play the lead role in the 2002 film “Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai”, alongside Tulip Joshi, Jimmy Sheirgill, and Bipasha Basu. The film directed by Sanjay Gadhvi was a commercial success.
He had a cameo appearance in the 2002 film “Mujhse Dosti Karoge”, starring Hrithik Roshan, Kareena Kapoor, and Rani Mukherji, and also acted in Supari (2003) and Charas: A Joint Operation (2004).
In 2004, he played the role of Ali in the action thriller film ‘Dhoom’ starring Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham, Esha Deol and Rimi Sen. The film directed by Sanjay Gadhvi proved to be a commercial success at the box office and it became the third highest-grossing Indian film of 2004. Uday Chopra was praised for his performance as Ali and was nominated for the Best Comedian award at IIFA Awards, Screen Awards, and Zee Cine Awards. He also reprised the role of Ali in its sequels Dhoom 2 (2006) and Dhoom 3 (2013).

He played the lead role in Neal ‘N’ Nikki (2005) opposite Tanishaa Mukerji & also played the lead role in Pyaar Impossible (2010) opposite Priyanka Chopra. However, despite being the son of late filmmaker Yash Chopra and director Aditya Chopra‘s brother, Uday failed to achieve stardom. He confessed in an interview that it was his mistake that he tried to be a mainstream actor and that he should have taken more characters like Ali in Dhoom Series.
In July 2012, he founded ‘Yomics’ which specializes in creating comic books predominantly based on Yash Raj Films movies. 3
After Dhoom 3 (2013), he put his acting career on a backseat and ventured into Hollywood as the CEO of Yash Raj Film’s subsidiary Hollywood production house YRF Entertainment. His first co-production Grace of Monaco (2014) was based on the life of Hollywood actress and Princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly. The film starred Nicole Kidman in the titular role and Tim Roth played the role of Prince Rainier. Grace of Monaco was selected as the opening movie at the Cannes Film Festival and also bagged Primetime Emmy nominations for ‘Outstanding Television Movie’ and ‘Outstanding Hairstyling for a Limited Series or a Movie’. 4
In the same year, he produced The Longest Week (2014) starring Olivia Wilde and Jason Bateman. The film was based on Swedish actress Ingrid Bergman’s love affair with photojournalist Robert Capa. 5
He was in a relationship with his Neal ‘n’ Nikki co-star Tanishaa Mukerji and there were rumors that they were even planning to get married. However, Tanisha dismissed the rumors saying, “I am not engaged to him, and wouldn’t like to comment on the issue.” 6
In January 2014, Uday Chopra and Nargis Fakhri were caught holidaying on a beach in Maldives. However, the couple broke up in 2016 and heartbroken Nargis flew off to New York. In an interview with ETimes, Nargis accepted that she was in a relationship with Uday for 5 years. Nargis had said,
“Uday and I dated for 5 years and he was the most beautiful human I met in India. I have never said this to the press as people told me to keep my relationship quiet, but I regret that because I should have shouted from the mountain tops that I was with such a beautiful soul. The internet and social media is very fake and the people out there won’t know what the truth is. Most often we idolise certain people who are actually bad behind closed doors.” 7 8

Uday Chopra made a quick uncredited appearance in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge as a man riding a bicycle, passing by Kajol. He also purchased the iconic brown leather jacket that Shah Rukh Khan wore in DDLJ from a Harley Davidson store in California for $400.
