Today is Director Mahesh Bhatt’s birthday. Mahesh Bhatt completed 70 years today. He is not only a director but also a producer as well as a screenwriter. His Saransh (1984) catapulted him to fame with the depiction of the author-bagged character of an old man, whose son dies in a foreign country and he struggles to get the ashes due to bureaucratic red tape. This movie was screened at the 14th Moscow International Film Festival. It was India’s official entry for the Best Foreign Language Film Category at the Academy Award that year. Naam (1986) was Mahesh Bhatt’s first commercial break. He gave Kabzaa (1987) with his brother Mukesh Bhatt under the banner of Vishesh Films. Mahesh Bhatt retired from direction after he gave Kartoos (1999). He recently announced that he would be returning to direction soon with Sadak 2.

Bambaise gayi Poona… Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke (1993) This happens to be one of my favorite songs.
Main tera aashiq hoon… Gumrah (1993) I love this song because Sridevi is featured in it. 🙂
