The National Award-winning filmmaker has directed films like ‘Khamoshi: The Musical,’ ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam,’ ‘Devdas,’ ‘Black,’ ‘Saawariya,’ ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela,’ ‘Bajirao Mastani,’ and ‘Padmaavat,’ among others.
Bhansali told Hindustan Times of his experience thus far. He said, “The trip has been fantastic, with many obstacles along the way, but I’ve cherished every bit of it. I’ve had the good fortune of receiving a lot of positive feedback on my work from the audience. However, I don’t believe any of these nine films would have been feasible without the people I’ve worked with. From technicians to actors. They played a crucial role in bringing my vision to life on film.”
