It's the end of an era for Hindi cinema as one of its doyens, filmmaker Baldev Raj Chopra, more popularly known as B R Chopra, passed away early today at his residence in Juhu, Mumbai.

Born on 22nd April 1914 in the Ludhiana town of undivided Punjab, B R Chopra was one of India's most respected film personalities. He is known for some of Hindi cinema's timeless classics like NAYA DAUR, GUMRAAH, HUMRAAZ, DHUND and NIKAAH to name a few. Almost all his films had a strong social message to convey to the public in an entertaining way.
