Prem Chopra’s father wanted him to become a doctor, but he grew up dreaming of becoming an IAS officer. After growing up, his passion for acting grew so much that he started struggling to establish himself in the film industry. He got an opportunity to build a career in the world of acting in a moving train. Then he started working in Punjabi films. Although he later entered Hindi films and failed to become a hero, he won the hearts of the audience as a villain so much so that he came to be known as a villain.
The dialogues of Mithun’s 1998 C-grade action film ‘Sholay’ shocked people, even the name is strange.

The producer of that Punjabi film ‘Chawdhury Karnail Singh’ was looking for a villain and he found Prem Chopra. This was the beginning of his villainy.
Was supposed to be a hero but became a villain
Prem Chopra also said, ‘He came to Mumbai with the dream of becoming a hero. After doing a few Punjabi films, when he got Hindi films, the films in which he starred were mostly flops. But despite being a villain, he looked more handsome than a hero. At this time, many people left the industry after dreaming of acting.
