Today is Filmmaker Sanjay Chhel’s birthday and this article lists some songs from the 1990s Bollywood movies, with which he was associated. Before that let’s see how he came to be in Bollywood. He was born to Chhel Vayeda, who handled the art direction and production design of different plays. The dramatic connection inspired Sanjay Chhel to write successful Gujarati plays.
Writing for several TV serials later, he directed and produced the TV serial Hum Sab Baraati (2004) for Zee TV. He debuted in movie-writing with Pehla Nasha (1993) and in direction with Khoobsoorat (1999). The rest is history.
I met him for a print magazine interview. I was nervous because I had bought a new portable cassette recorder for the purpose. He assured me that it will work and I would be able to take away audible sound-bytes from him.
