Prem Adib (1917–1959) was an Indian film actor. He was acclaimed as one of the top actors of the early 1940s, along with Pahadi Sanyal, Ashok Kumar, P. C. Barua, Master Vinayak and others. Adib is best remembered for his role as Ram in Bharat Milap (1942). Prem Adib became popular after playing Rama in Bharat Milap (1942) and Ram Rajya (1946). These films embodying India's "traditional values" had Prem Adib and Shobhana Samarth portraying the "ideal Rama and Sita". Adib and Samarth continued their pairing as Rama and Sita, acting together in another Ramayana based film Rambaan (1948). They became popular enough to have them emulating the Gods in calendars of that era.
