And now 14 new directors:

Bollywood News

The year 2003 will surely go down as the year that witnessed the maximum number of newcomers making their debut in films. If the first quarter of the year [January to March] saw a number of newcomers facing the camera, the next quarter [April to June] will witness a record number of 14 directors making their foray in cinema. Starting with Sanjay Jha [PRAAN JAYE PAR SHAAN NA JAYE] and Ken Ghosh [ISHQ VISHK], the coming weeks will witness the directorial debut of B.H. Tharun Kumar [NAYEE PADOSAN], Gaurab Pandey [STUMPED], Tigmanshu Dhulia [HAASIL], Vijay Kumar [KAHAN HO TUM], Honey Irani [ARMAAN], Ammtoje Maan [HAWAYEIN], Apoorva Lakhia [MUMBAI SE AAYA MERA DOST], Sujoy Ghosh [JHANKAAR BEATS], Kushan Nandy [88 ANTOP HILL], Rohan Sippy [KUCH NAA KAHO], Prabal Pandey [DARNA MANA HAI] and Parvati Balagopalan [RULES]. What's even more interesting about these debutantes is the fact that each one comes from an altogether diverse background. Like B.H. Tharun Kumar is an accomplished choreographer, Vijay Kumar has been a documentary maker, Honey Irani is a proficient film writer, ditto for Tigmanshu Dhulia who has been associated with talked-about films like BANDIT QUEEN and DIL SE, Ammtoje Maan started out as an actor [he was Sunny Deol's replacement in Dilip Kumar's directorial debut KALINGA], Sujoy Ghosh has been a journalist, Rohan Sippy is the son of the legendary Ramesh Sippy, Prabal Pandey has been an assistant to Ramgopal Varma and both Kushan Nandy [son of Pritish Nandy] and Parvati Balagopalan have dabbled in television before taking their first big step in cinema. Another interesting aspect is that the above-named films are different from each other in terms of content. But will all of them meet a common fate - success at the box-office - let's pray for that!
