What is it about some villains that we are compelled to hate? Their impeccable portrayal perhaps, or how they delve into the character and almost have the public convinced that the fictitious character they are playing is real. This is the case with Prem Chopra, one of the most respected and hated villains in the Indian film industry, who has garnered fans for over 50 years now. His villainous reign commenced with the era of black and white movies and continues to this very day. Prem Naam Hai Mera, Prem Chopra, written by Rakita Nanda, Prem Chopra's daughter, is an attempt to capture and present to the readers the saga of a journey of this legend, in his own words.
The memoir traces the journey of a young and impressionable boy who would wait for hours outside the Clarkes hotel, Shimla, to merely catch a fleeting glimpse of his favourite actors; to the respected actor whose fans would do the same for him outside that very hotel.
Nanda has also included interesting anecdotes and stories that were hitherto unheard, about other actors, including Manoj Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan, Sharman Joshi, and Rishi Kapoor.
Prem Naam Hai Mera, Prem Chopra was published by Rain Light and is the first edition in 2014. It is available in hardcover.
