Dragan Bjelogrlić "Bjela" (Serbian: Драган Бјелогрлић, pronounced [ˌdrǎɡan bjeˈlǒɡr̩lit͜ɕ ˈbjěːla]; born on 10 October 1963) is a Serbian actor, director, and producer.


Simultaneous to moving from Baranda to Belgrade to continue his studies, 14-year-old Bjelogrlić also debuted in movies playing Sava Jovanović Sirogojno in Boško Buha, a 1978 film that achieved sizable popularity.[citation needed]

He followed that up in the coming years with other roles in TV series, short, and feature films. By the mid-1980s, Bjelogrlić was an established young actor in SFR Yugoslavia. In 1985 he appeared in Bal na vodi as part of an ensamble cast of his peers such as Srđan Todorović, Nebojša Bakočević, Goran Radaković, and Gala Videnović.[citation needed]

In 1987, he became one of the central cast members on the hugely popular drama television series Bolji život. Playing the role of Boba Popadić made Bjelogrlić a recognizable star all across the country. His brother Goran Bjelogrlić is a film producer. His 2010 film, Montevideo, God Bless You!, was selected as the Serbian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 84th Academy Awards,[1] but did not make the final shortlist.[2] The film's sequel, See You in Montevideo, was released in 2014.[citation needed]
