Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

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. See more »

Trivia:

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. See more »

Trademark:

His films often feature emotional pain and trauma being exprienced by his protagonists. See more »

Star Sign:

Pisces
