Sharman Joshi, son-in-law of veteran actor Prem Chopra during the celebration, said that he would love to essay the role of the senior actor from the film Do Anjaane.
Do Anjaane, starring Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha, released in 1976. Prem Chopra had won a Filmfare Best Supporting Actor Award for it too.
"I would like to play his role from Do Anjaane. It was such a remarkable film and his character was amazing. I think, Prem Chopra got many awards for that film and that is the film I would like to do," Sharman said at a celebration for Prem Chopra's 60 years in the film industry here on Thursday.
Sharman, who was there with his wife Prerana, also lauded his father-in-law as a thorough professional and exceptional human being.
"He is an exceptional professional and human being. I am really fortunate to know him at such a personal level. I've spent many evenings with him and I have had the pleasure of hearing some wonderful anecdotes,’’ he said.
"I've been able to watch him closely as a human being and learn so much and inspire myself. In fact, I have tried to imbibe and live a life that he has lived -- one of complete discipline, hard work, perseverance and determination. I am very proud of him," he said.
Celebrities like Jeetendra, Rakesh Roshan, Sharman Joshi with his wife Prerana Chopra, Indra Kumar, Harish Kumar and Mukesh Rishi graced the party.
Rakesh said: "It is such a huge achievement for Prem Chopra. And for all of us, an example. He has been in the industry for such a long time and still working. He is such a lovely man, just like his name. We are really good friends. I wish him a long run ahead."
Prem Chopra was last seen on-screen in comedy drama Patel Ki Punjaabi Shaadi.
