Aditya Chopra, the director and producer who is renowned for being extremely quiet and rarely appears in public, has voiced his disappointment over his brother Uday Chopra's lack of success. He claimed that privilege could only help performers get their foot in the door of the movie business. The audience then chooses a person to observe, admire, and appreciate.
The YRF head said the following in the recently released Netflix documentary series The Romantics: "One of the things that people tend to ignore is that every person who comes from a privileged background is not successful. I can articulate it without mentioning other people. I can just articulate it by mentioning my own family."
He continued by saying, "My brother is an actor, and he's not a very successful actor. Here is the son of one of the biggest filmmakers. He's the brother of a very big filmmaker. Imagine a company like YRF that has launched so many newcomers that we could not make him a star."
He concluded by saying that the only force in show business with the ability to turn someone into a star is the audience. Aditya added, "Why could we not do it for our own? The bottom line is, only an audience will decide, 'I like this person, I want to see this person'. No one else."
Uday made his acting debut in 2000 with Mohabbatein, directed by Aditya. He then starred in the 2004 action movie Dhoom and its 2006 and 2013 prequels, Dhoom 2 and Dhoom 3. He reprised his role as Ali Akbar Fateh Khan in both of the sequels, and the original movie's version of the character was well received.
Uday produced two movies in 2014. Nicole Kidman played the title role in the Grace Kelly movie, Grace of Monaco. He worked on the comedy-drama The Longest Week with Jason Bateman and Olivia Wilde. It is the inaugural endeavour of YRF Entertainment, the Hollywood division of Yash Raj Film.
Netflix offers streaming of The Romantics.
