Family

Career


Uday Chopra started working as an assistant director on films like Lamhe (1991), Parampara (1993), Darr (1993), Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (1995) and Dil To Pagal Hai (1997). He also co-produced his first film, Yeh Dillagi, in 1994 when he was just 21 years old.

Uday made his acting debut with the mule-starrer Mohabbatein in 2001, which was a huge hit. His next movie Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai was also well-received. However, after this, his career went downhill. All of his subsequent films in the next eight years flopped, like Supari, Charas, Neal 'n' Nikki, and Pyaar Impossible. However, he found himself part of the Dhoom franchise, starting with the first film in 2004. His role as mechanic-turned-cop Ali was well-received by the audience.

In his later career, Uday took a backseat from acting and focused on other avenues. He was the writer for Pyaar Impossible and screenwriter for Ladies vs. Ricky Bahl. In 2012, he set up YRF Entertainment, the Hollywood subsidiary of Yash Raj Films. Under the banner, he produced two critically-acclaimed movies, Grace of Monaco and The Longest Week in the year 2014. Apart from YRF Entertainment, Uday also owns Yomics, a company that makes comics about YRF films, and is the manager of Yash Raj Films.
