We are deeply saddened to report the passing of Pamela Chopra, a Bollywood icon and beloved wife of late filmmaker Yash Chopra. Pamela, aged 85, passed away on April 19, 2023, leaving behind a legacy of contributions to the film industry and a heartbroken family and fanbase.
Pamela’s career in Bollywood began in the 1960s when she acted in films such as “Bewaqoof” and “Afsana”. She went on to marry the legendary director Yash Chopra, and the two shared an unbreakable bond until Yash’s passing in 2012. Pamela was not only Yash’s life partner, but also his creative partner, and the two collaborated on several memorable films such as “Lamhe“, “Darr”, and “Silsila”.
Pamela’s contributions to the film industry extended beyond her acting and collaboration with Yash Chopra. She also served as a producer for many of Yash Raj Films’ successful ventures, including “Veer-Zaara”, “Dil To Pagal Hai“, and “Dhoom 3”. Her keen business acumen helped propel Yash Raj Films to become one of the most successful production houses in Bollywood.
