Sanjay Bhansali | Sunjay Bunsali
Did You Know?
About Alzheimer's disease: The idea of forgetting...things, names, persons...terrifies me. When I forget a little thing, it is an absolute trauma until it comes back to me again. All of us have these lapses of memory - what if memory doesn't return?
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.
His films often feature emotional pain and trauma being exprienced by his protagonists.
