Today, on her 41st birthday, we celebrate her entrepreneurial spirit by highlighting four of her most significant business ventures.

The brand stands out for its vegan, cruelty-free, and gender-neutral products that cater to a wide range of customers at different price points. Anomaly reflects Chopra’s dedication to creating products that are both effective and environmentally responsible. 

  • Sona: A Culinary Fusion

In 2021, Chopra partnered with her entrepreneur friend Maneesh Goyal to open Sona, a restaurant in New York City. Sona offers a unique menu that fuses Indian cuisine with international flavors, featuring popular dishes such as butter chicken meatballs and the Sona burger. The restaurant has become a hotspot for both Hollywood and Bollywood celebrities, including Mindy Kaling, Kal Penn, and Anupam Kher. Sona represents Chopra’s ability to blend her cultural heritage with modern culinary trends, creating a dining experience that resonates with a diverse clientele.

Chopra’s passion for storytelling led her to establish Purple Pebble Pictures in 2015, alongside her mother, Dr. Madhu Chopra. The production house focuses on regional content, bringing compelling stories to a broader audience. Notable films backed by Purple Pebble Pictures include the Marathi film Ventilator (2016) and The Sky Is Pink (2019), in which Chopra starred alongside Farhan Akhtar. Through this venture, Chopra has demonstrated her commitment to promoting diverse voices and narratives in the film industry.

Expanding her entrepreneurial portfolio, Chopra launched Sona Home in June 2022 with her business partner Maneesh Goyal. This homeware brand features a sophisticated 45-piece collection that includes dinnerware, gilded bottle coolers, and sumptuous linens. Sona Home aims to bring a touch of global elegance to everyday life, offering products that create a magical atmosphere for any occasion. As described on the brand’s website, “Sona Home brings the world to your table,” reflecting Chopra’s vision of blending style and functionality in home decor.
