As a Director, Ravi Chopra enjoyed box-office success with films like Mazdoor, Tumhari Kassam, Aaj Ki Awaz, Dahleez, and Baghban but his biggest success was his TV series Mahabharata.
After assisting his Father and Uncle Yash Chopra in several films he made his full-fledged debut with the movie Zameer in 1975 which was produced under his family banner of B.R. Films. His next venture was The Burning Train, he was deeply hurt that his pet project Burning Train, the story which he himself penned and also directed, didn’t do well at box-office in-spite of it getting critical acclaims and accumulating positive reviews.
While he could never really deliver thought-provoking fare in his initial phase in Zameer or The Burning Train, he struck gold with 'Baghban'. He brought the epic 'Mahabharat' to every household and this was the biggest highlight of his career.
