HAPPY BIRTHDAY DIBAKAR BANERJEE: Filmmaker and screenwriter Dibakar Banerjee turned a year older on Tuesday. Banerjee has made notable films in Hindi cinema and has worked with stars like Rajkummar Rao, the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput and Abhay Deol. He is often credited with being one of those filmmakers who changed the face of Hindi cinema. Banerjee is one of the few Bollywood directors whose talent and storytelling has wowed audiences over the years with gritty, gray characters.
Since his debut film, the comedy-thriller Khosla Ka Ghosla, Banerjee has cemented his place in Bollywood by delivering mind-blowing stories.
On his birthday, let’s take a look at some of his latest and upcoming films:
Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar (2021)
Her latest film Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar was released last year. The film tells the story of two people representing two contrasting backgrounds. However, despite their myriad differences, the duo was united by the hatred they had for each other. The film starred Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra in the lead roles.
Ghost Stories (2020)
For this Netflix anthology, Banerjee directed a biting horror thriller starring Sukant Goel. The short film was full of political and social symbols at its core. Jump scares are galore in this Netflix special as the monster haunts a small village where it’s known to eat people.
For his next project, Banerjee and producer Ekta Kapoor will reunite after more than a decade. It is said that Banerjee and Kapoor will be working on the sequel to their critically acclaimed film Love Sex Aur Dhokha. The 2010 film was groundbreaking in many ways. The filmmakers hope to continue the legacy with the upcoming sequel.
