Vishaal Bhardwaj | Vishal
Did You Know?
No film of mine has worked at the box office. They never made money... None of my films. 'Haider' just recovered the money. Not even 'Omkara' I was told. But it doesn't bother (me)
Vishal is known for his collaborations with Gulzar
, who opted for Vishal's music in all his directorial ventures since Maachis
(1996). In turn, he has provided lyrics to all of Vishal's films.
Often uses excessive alcohol intake or drunk talk as root of all the events or mishaps that follow in his films. (eg Pankaj Kapur's bodyguard's drinking at his orders leading to his murder in Maqbool
(2003), the drunk talk between Rajjo and Langda Tyagi and drunk Kesu (cunningly made to drink by Langda Tyagi) creating a scene by beating up Rajjo after the 'Beedi' song sequence in Omkara
