Chopra was admitted to the Breach Candy hospital here as he was not keeping well for some time. He died aged 68 yesterday.
The filmmaker directed Bachchan in family saga 'Baghban' and produced 'Bhoothnath' and 'Bhoothnath Returns' with the 72-year-old actor playing the friendly ghost in both the movies.
Bachchan, who is currently shooting for Shoojit Circar's 'Piku' here, was informed by son Abhishek of Chopra's demise.
He took to his blog to express his grief.
"Ravi Chopra, my dear friend and director and producer passed away suddenly today...
"Filled with grief and sorrow, and unable to find words that could possibly describe what I go through, it is difficult to imagine those days spent together... What does
one write on such occasions. Silence is the best condolence... My love," he posted.
