Uday Chopra debuted as an actor 14 years ago with his brother۪s Mohabbatein۪ (2000). Over the years, Chopra has acted in a handful of other films and especially been appreciated for his comic timing playing the character of Ali in the Dhoom۪ series. However, he admits that his acting career did not see much success and primarily blames this on his PR.
I۪m human. It hurt. My biggest regret is that I didn۪t have good PR. So people wrote whatever they thought they knew about me. For any actor, his image is everything. But I۪ve moved on. Also, I am luckier than most people. It۪s not that I didn۪t get movies. It۪s just that I kept getting the same movies and I kept saying no to them because I had a choice, Chopra said in an interview to Filmfare.
The 41-year-old is presently focused on taking his family۪s production house, Yash Raj Films, to Hollywood. He has already produced one film, Grace of Monaco۪ (2014), under their YRF Entertainment branch and has plans for many more in the coming years.
