Sujoy Ghosh ecstatic on Jhankaar Beats turning 11

The ace filmmaker began his Bollywood journey with the same film

Sujoy Ghosh, who started his career with hit film Jhankaar Beats in 2003, is ecstatic after the musical has completed 11 years. He thanks Pritish Nandy, one of the co-writers of the film, for coming up with such a strong concept. “11 years of Jhankaar Beats and career today thanks to Pritish Nandy, the man with b***s of steel. faatafaati aadmi,” tweeted Ghosh.

Jhankaar Beats, a small budget film, boasted a wonderful cast – Juhi Chawla, Sanjay Suri, Rahul Bose, Rinke Khanna, Riya Sen and Shayan Munshi – and their performances complemented Ghosh’s storytelling technique making the film a good watch. The musical was a tribute to legendary composer Rahul Dev Burman.

Vishal Dadlani, who had composed music for the film along with Shekhar Ravjiani, also tweeted Thursday night: “Tomorrow is the eleventh anniversary of the release of Jhankaar Beats! Sujoy, how time flies! Our stupidity is unchanged, thankfully!”
