Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s Son, Agni Chopra, Makes History with Four Consecutive Centuries in Ranji Trophy

1 min read

Agni Chopra, 25, has made history by becoming the first player to score centuries in his first four first-class games after debuting for Mizoram in the Ranji Trophy Plate League earlier this month. His scores of 105, 101, 114, 10, 164, 15, 166, and 92 have earned him an average of 95.87 and a remarkable strike rate of 111.80. Representing Mumbai Under-19 and Under-23, he was advised by his coach Khuspreet Singh to join a team with better playing opportunities, leading him to move to Mizoram.

Agni expressed gratitude for the warmth and acceptance he has received in Mizoram, emphasizing that he feels like a part of the community. He hopes to lead Mizoram to qualify for the Plate League final to secure a spot in the Elite League next season. Despite comparisons to his father, Anupama Chopra, a well-known film critic, and Vidhu Vinod Chopra, a successful filmmaker, Agni has chosen to pursue cricket instead of following in his parents’ footsteps.

Agni shared that his father’s advice has always been to strive for excellence in whatever path he chooses, regardless of the family’s background in the film industry. The solid work ethic demonstrated by his parents has had a significant influence on him.
