Pamela Chopra frequently worked together with her deceased husband and was frequently listed as the film’s writer, costume designer, and singer. ‘Main Sasural Nahi Jaungi’ from Chandni and ‘Ghar Aaja Pardesi’ from Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, both of which she co-wrote with Manpreet Kaur, were two of her most well-known songs.
She wrote the screenplay for Yash Chopra’s 1976 movie Kabhi Kabhie, and she was listed as the costume designer for the 1981 movie Silsila. In numerous interviews, Yash Chopra discussed Pamela’s contributions to his films and identified her as one of the founding members of Yash Raj Films, which began after their marriage.
Rani Mukerji, who is married to Aditya Chopra, stated in a recent interview that Pamela Chopra’s influence caused Yash Chopra to create attractive parts for women. “I really feel that Pamela Chopra’s impact in his life had a significant role in inspiring him to write such wonderful parts for women. I’ve always admired the way he portrayed his heroines on television and, in my heart of hearts, I’ve always wanted to be the classic “Yash Chopra heroine,” she remarked.
