    Description

    Prem Naam Hai Mera - Prem Chopra is the definitive biography of one of Bollywood's greatest villains.

    Summary of the Book

    A man with a soft voice, and such slow diction that you wouldn't place him among villains, Prem Chopra is synonymous with role. In fact, he defines it. In this book, the author takes readers and fans through the life of one of Bollywood's most celebrated villains and ruled the silver screen from 1967 to 1994, a period considered his zenith by many of his fans and critics alike. Written by his daughter, this memoir takes readers through his life and achievements, from the time when he waited tables at Shimla to look at film stars who dined there to being mobbed by fans decades later at the same place. His lecherous portraits, the ones he scorched the Hindi silver screen with, led to a strange public image, one of hate and revulsion, and what better mark of a villain is there than to be hated by the public? In the niche family within the cinema industry, he was all but despised however, and Dharmendra himself dubbed Prem's couplets Prem Awargi. And again in his family, he was loving husband and beloved father above all. Read about the man behind the onscreen evil avatar, and learn about his trade and passion through anecdotes taken straight from the legend himself about other Bollywood legends through the ages.

    Excellent insights into a real life gentleman who succeeded as a villain in make believe life which is movies. Enjoyed watching him on screen and the book proves that villains in movies are real life heroes (Pran being another example).

    Definitely worth buying.
