If Sooraj Barjatya is known for his family dramas and Aditya Chopra is known for his romantic flicks, here is one director who dared to be different, handled criticism with ease and made himself into a brand- the director who breaks all the laws of physics, has cars flying high in the sky and yet manages to entertain his audience and make them laugh!
Born to movie fight master M. B. Shetty, Rohit began his career as an assistant director. In 2003, he made his debut as a director with the hijack-drama ‘Zameen’ starring Abhishek Bachchan and Ajay Devgn. While ‘Zameen’ was a big disaster at the box office, the director made a comeback and laid the foundation of ‘Brand Rohit Shetty’ with ‘Golmaal’, and the rest is history!
9 years after ‘Zameen’, we saw the director re-unite his ‘Zameen’ lead actors in the box-office hit ‘Bol Bachchan’! From working the biggest names of the industry to becoming the director whose movies have been shattering box office records time and again, this ‘Dilwale’ director has no looking back!
Here’s wishing him a very Happy and Car-tastic Birthday!
