Urdu, a cultured language
Prem Chopra, along with writer Javed Siddiqui and actor Sharmila Tagore, will talk about the evolution of the Urdu language in Hindi cinema at 'Jashn-E-Rekhta' festival
NEW DELHI :
Even when you fight with someone in Urdu, it seems like you are complimenting them." For veteran actor Prem Chopra, there’s no language sweeter than Urdu. “The Urdu zubaan has played an integral part in Hindi cinema. It is the backbone of films and lyrics and instantly lends richness to a simple dialogue or a song," says Chopra, whose Urdu couplets are famous within the film industry, so much so that his colleague Dharmendra christened them “Prem Awargi".
