The Kahaani director turns 48 today
Director Sujoy Ghosh’s debut Jhankaar Beats is hailed as the ‘father’ of multiplex films. It got good reviews and over the years went on to become one of the best tributes to music director RD Burman ever made in modern times. Post JB, Sujoy came up with Home Delivery and Aladin, both of which flopped at the box office.
The tables turned for Sujoy when his Vidya Balan-starrer Kahaani released and caught everyone’s fancy. Not only did it strike gold at the box office, but also became the only Indian film in the Top 50 list in the International Movie Data Base (IMDB). Kahaani has been remade in Tamil and Telugu with Nayantara reprising the role of Vidya Balan. Now that Sujoy has made it to the top league in B-town, speculation has already begun about his next.
BollywoodLife wishes the marvellous director a very happy birthday, and hope he continues to intrigue us with his kind of cinema in the near future!
