Prem Chopra Honoured With Living Legend Award

Bollywood actor Prem Chopra was on Saturday honoured with the living legend prize at the 25th annual Bharat Nirman awards function here. Chopra, who played villainous roles on-screen during the 1970s and 1980s, was the star attraction of the evening. Besides the “Bobby”, “Kati Patang” and “Do Raaste” star, well-known actor Raza Murad was also felicitated under the ‘Achievers Awards’ category for ‘Film Actor’.

Olympic gold medallist and former India hockey captain Gurbux Singh and ex-Governor of West Bengal Justice Shyamal K Sen were conferred lifetime achievement awards. “Whenever a cultural programme is organised here, it is always of the highest standard,” Chopra, 82, said while receiving the award to loud cheers at the packed Kala Mandir auditorium.
