- Early life
Chopra was born as Pamela Singh, the daughter of Mohinder Singh, an officer in the Indian Army. The eldest of three children, she has two younger brothers. Since her father was posted in several remote locations all over India, Chopra was educated at several army schools. She is a cousin of the actress Simi Garewal. Chopra's father Mohinder Singh and Garewal's mother Darshi Garewal were siblings.
Chopra married the film-maker Yash Chopra in 1970. The marriage was arranged by their families in the traditional Indian manner. The two families had a common friend, the mother of film-maker Romesh Sharma (producer of the blockbuster Hum). Sharma contacted the wife of BR Chopra and suggested that Pamela Singh would be 'the ideal bride' for BR's younger brother Yash Chopra. "She was not wrong because we had a wonderful marriage", Pamela was to say forty years later in an interview. The couple met each other for the first time in a formal setting and found each other agreeable. The wedding was held in 1970.
They have two sons together, Aditya (b. 1971) and Uday (b. 1973). Aditya Chopra is a film producer and director. He is married to the actress Rani Mukerji. Uday Chopra is an actor and film producer.
Chopra has dabbled in several fields connected to film. She is a talented singer who has sung several film songs, all of them for her husband's films, from Kabhie Kabhie (1976) to Mujhse Dosti Karoge! (2002). Her name also appeared in the capacity of 'producer' on the credits of films made and directed by her husband. However, the 1993 film Aaina was independently produced by her. She also co-wrote the script of her husband's 1997 film Dil To Pagal Hai along with son Aditya Chopra, Tanuja Chandra and Yash Chopra. She has also appeared on screen on one single occasion: in the opening song "Ek Duje Ke Vaaste" of the film Dil To Pagal Hai, where she and her husband appeared together. As a schoolgirl, she had learnt Bharatanatyam, but she has never performed in public.
