Uday Chopra made a successful debut as an actor, under his elder brother’s direction in MOHABBATEIN (2000), which was one of the top grossing films of the year.

He also played the lead in MERE YAAR KI SHAADI HAI (2002) and a cameo in MUJHSE DOSTI KAROGE (2002). He has acted in films produced by other banners as well, like SUPARI (2003) and CHARAS (2004).

Uday Chopra (as Ali) won the nation over in DHOOM (2004), which was one of the highest grossing Hindi films of the year.

He also played a lead character in NEAL ‘N’ NIKKI (2005). After the super success of DHOOM, its sequel DHOOM:2 (2006) also had a stellar performance by the youngest scion of the Chopra family. Uday also played the lead role in PYAAR IMPOSSIBLE (2010) which was also written and produced by him for YRF. He also starred in DHOOM:3 next to Aamir Khan in 2013.

Uday Chopra launched ‘Yomics’ - YRF Comics in 2012 in an endeavour to bring the comic art form of entertainment back and use the lure of films to help excite and entice the first lot of consumers. Under this umbrella four major comic series were created including DHOOM, HUM TUM, EK THA TIGER and a new character-based series - ‘Daya Prochu’ which is an anagram of Uday Chopra.
