MUMBAI: Veteran Prem Chopra who's played both grey and good characters with equal aplomb is doing a crossover filmHeartland, directed by double Emmy winning director Fred Holmes who's directed TV serials like Barney & Friends, The Music Box and a Bird of a Different Feather.

The film will see the 73-year-old as one of the central characters of the story, which revolves around two villages in Punjab and Texas. "I am playing Ranveer Singh and have a full-fledged role and am the central character," says Chopra on phone from Ludhiana where he is shooting for the film.
"Though being completely different, these two settings are similar because the people share similar values, like love for the land and respect for elders," he adds.


The actor is playing an upright Punjabi farmer who faces a dilemma when his NRI grandson comes seeking approval to marry an American.

The actor who became a household name with his Bobby dialogue Prem naam hai mera, Prem Chopra has worked in over 400 Hindi and Punjabi films.

"I signed the film a month ago and am currently shooting in Ludhiana. Let me clear the fact that I accepted Heartland only because the role was meaty and not for the 'international tag'," Chopra avered.

Chopra follows Naseeruddin Shah, Anupam Kher and Anil Kapoor who have shone in Hollywood films earlier.
