Chopra, who celebrated his 80th birthday on September 27, changed the face of romance in Hindi cinema to become a brand in Bollywood, with hits such as Kabhie Kabhie, Silsila, Chandni and Dil to Pagal Hai in his five-decade long illustrious career.

Born on September 27, 1932 in Lahore, Chopra also thrilled fans with action dramas such a Trishul and Deewar, which established Amitabh Bachchan as the “angry young man”.
