The striker was the Championship's second-top scorer last season as he netted 22 goals from 42 games with the Bluebirds.
The 23-year-old former Newcastle player has signed a four-year deal at the Stadium of Light for a fee that could rise to £5million depending on appearances after completing a medical and agreeing terms on Friday afternoon.
"I'm delighted that Michael has joined us," Keane told the club's website.
"He's a natural goalscorer who will bring competition with our other quality strikers to the side. I'm very confident he will score goals for this football club."
Chopra becomes the third player to join the Black Cats over the summer following Keane's capture of Greg Halford and Russell Anderson.
