Subhash Ghai is a popular Indian director and a producer who is credited with writing and directing over a dozen blockbusters. Subhash was born in Nagpur, India. After completing his diploma from Film and Television Institute of India, he debuted as a director with ‘Kalicharan’ in 1976. This was followed by a series of hit films written and directed by the Subhash himself. He started his own production company called ‘Mukta Arts International’ which later went on to become a public company with Subhash as its Chairman and Managing Director. Once known as the most successful director of 1980s and 1990s, Subhash’s films failed to do well at the box office in the 2000s with ‘Yaadein’ and ‘Kisna’ being critical box office failures. Subhash then took a break from film direction and started his own institute for film direction and production called the “Whistling Woods International” in Mumbai. Subhash has also been credited with introducing many artists and technicians such as Madhuri Dixit, Jackie Shroff, Meenakshi Sheshadri, Jaaved Jaffrey, Saroj Khan, Manisha Koirala, Mahima Chaudhary, Isha Shravani, Antonia Bernath, Shreyas Talpade and Anurag Sinha. Known for their dramatic themes and larger than life characters, several of his films have become important milestones of Indian cinema.
