The technology produces maximum immersive sound through minimum speakers and amplifiers.

Celebrating 69th birthday on 24th January 2014

Who does not know Subhash Ghai the producer, director, writer of bollywood industry? The versatile artiste is known for giving names to so many bollywood stars and also giving new images to veterans.

At the peak of his directorial career in the 1980s and 1990s, he formed a collaboration with Dilip Kumar whom he directed in Vidhaata (1982), Karma (1986) and Saudagar (1991), the latter for which he won the Filmfare Best Director Award. He helped establish the careers of Jackie Shroff and Anil Kapoor, introducing Jackie as a leading actor in Hero (1983) and directed Kapoor in Meri Jung (1985) for which he was nominated for a Filmfare Best Actor Award. He went onto frequently work with both actors casting them together in the films Karma (1986), Ram Lakhan (1989) and Trimurti (1995) which he had produced and was directed by Mukul S. Anand. His 1993 release Khalnayak starring Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit and Shroff featured the controversial song “Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai”.

In 1997 he directed Pardes which starred Shahrukh Khan and introduced Mahima Chaudhry and Apoorva Agnihotri. In 1999 he directed Taal which starred Akshaye Khanna, Aishwarya Rai and Anil Kapoor. Both Pardes and Taal were released internationally and featured in the top 20 movies in the U.S. box office charts for several weeks. His following films were Yaadein (2001) and Kisna (2005).

He then took a break from directing and turned producer with films such as Aitraaz (2004), 36 China Town (2006) and Apna Sapna Money Money (2006).

In 2006, he set up his own state-of-the-art film institute Whistling Woods International in Mumbai.The institute trains students in film-making, production, direction, cinematography, acting, animation, etc. Like Alfred Hitchcock he is known to give brief cameos in his directorial ventures.

Subhash Ghai’s ‘Kaanchi’ to release on 11th April

The film, which stars Ghai’s latest find Mishti and actor Kartik Aryan along with veterans Mithun Chakraborty and Rishi Kapoor, is about inner power of a woman who represents millions of suppressed youth against injustice in the country, said a statement issued by the filmmaker’s banner Mukta Arts.

The film is directed and produced by Ghai, and its musical score is done by Ismail Darbar and Salim-Suleiman with lyrics by Irshad Kamil.

Ghai, known for movies like “Ram Lakhan”, “Saudagar”, “Khalnayak”, “Pardes” and “Taal”, was earlier in no hurry to announce a release date for “Kaanchi” – a mistake, he said, he had made with his last film “Yuvvraaj”.

The filmmaker, who has earlier discovered talents like Manisha Koirala, Jackie Shroff and Mahima Chowdhary, is extremely upbeat about “Kaanchi” and about launching Bengali girl Mishti in Bollywood.

Super actor Adil Hussain in Subhash Ghai’s KAANCHI!

After a stunning act in Vikramaditya Motwani’s LOOTERA, super actor Adil Hussain will be seen in another strong performance oriented role in veteran filmmaker Subhash Ghai’s dream project, KAANCHI.


Confirming the news, Adil told us, ”Yes, I am doing KAANCHI but I would not like to divulge any details about my character or the role as it is too early.”

Adil Hussain’s joining team KAANCHI gives the project depth and respect as he is a known and respected face amidst a lot of newcomers, even though there are reputed names like Rishi Kapoor and Mithun Chakraborty too.

The much talked about KAANCHI stars mostly newcomers, and has been in the news recently for its fun item song, ‘Kambal Ke Neeche’.

Before we sign off, here is something of interest for our patrons who trust our news. Class actor and National Award winner, Nawazuddin Siddiqui too had been offered a role in KAANCHI but things could not materialize due to Nawaz’s busy date schedule.
