David Dhawan, happy birthday!

Specialised in directing comedy films, this director turns 53 today

Born on August 16, 1960, David Dhawan will blow 53 candles today. Dhawan started off as an editor before moving to direction.

Known for his camaraderie with Govinda, the duo has delivered numerous hits like Raja Babu, Coolie No 1, Saajan Chale Sasural, Jodi No1 and many more. Dhawan has also had a successful pairing with Salman Khan for films like Judwaa, Biwi No.1, Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya, Mujhse Shaadi Karogi and Partner. Apart from making us laugh through his films, David Dhawan created his own style of music through the ‘90s. He will soon direct his son Varun Dhawan in his next titled Main Tera Hero.

As we wish this director a grand birthday, we hope he continues delivering more comedy films and continues to tickle our funny bone!
