# Headlines Entertainment Tops

Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar is one of the most popular filmmakers in the Bollywood film industry. He is known for his films, Heroine, Fashion, Indu Sarkar and more.

In a recent interview, Madhur Bhandarkar is seen recalling a shocking incident when he was a new addition to the Bollywood film industry. He said, “In 2001, I was nominated at awards for Chandni Bar. I saw a veteran filmmaker made to sit almost 15 rows behind. I was shocked, and asked ‘Sir aap yahaan baithe ho?’. He said ‘Yahaan bithaya hai’. I was shocked to see that man was sitting there. If his son would have been an
actor, he’d have been in the front row, and that pained me.”

He further talks about his commercial hits like Heroine, Corporate, and Fashion. He said, “I’m a person who felt this is my future if it has happened to this veteran. I said ‘Sir, aap mere saath aao’, and they’re used to be these
round tables at that time, and five-six nominated people used to sit, so he sat with me. I got a strong perspective, this is life, and it’s so sad. I meet veterans, they tell me ‘Humein koi phone nahi karta’, and are in tears. I’ve seen that very much, in close quarters.”

“I’m very practical and learned that ‘success has a lot of fathers, failure is an orphan’. That’s the reason I kept away from lobbies and camps and made films on my own. I kept my sanity. It’s very important to have that intact in this industry. If you remain mesmerized with the glamour, and suddenly success isn’t there, you realize mere liye success hai nahi. There will be some superb films, and some not so well,” he added.

Madhur Bhandarkar reveals her, does not have any friends in the film fraternity. He concludes by saying, “I don’t have a single friend in the film industry, but I know some nice people, and they’re limited in number. What I went through during the time of Indu Sarkar’s release… I was the guy who stood up for films of other people, because I believe the freedom of expression should be maintained. But when my film got targeted, nobody
wanted to come (forward). You’ve to fight your own battles here.”

Madhur Bhandarkar’s last project was Indu Sarkar in the year 2017. The film is an Indian period political thriller that was co-written, co-produced and directed by Madhur Bhandarkar. As of now, there are no upcoming
films helmed by Madhur Bhandarkar.
