Sanjay Bhansali | Sunjay Bunsali
Did You Know?
About his "lack of restraint": Listen, I was born and brought up in Bombay, where people shout at each other from the windows of flats on opposite sides of the streets. I belong to a community with a loud lifestyle. You can't expect dignity, propriety, control and detachment from ME! My talk is full-throated, my expressions full-blooded. I cannot make a film without melodrama.
He is the only director, besides the legendary Guru Dutt
, who created his films in total isolation from the public. In fact, two of Dutt's films - Kaagaz Ke Phool
(1959) and Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam
(1962) - are Bhansali's favourite movies. His wish is to remake either or both of these movies at some point in his career, as well as to make a biopic on Guru Dutt's life.
Dedicates all his films to his deceased father
