Prolific filmmaker Prakash Mehra passes away

Bollywood News

Prakash Mehra from amidst us. The prolific filmmaker, who was unwell for a while now, died early (Sunday) morning due to multiple organ failure. He was 69 years old. Prakash Mehra was the person who needs to be credited for creating the cult 'Angry Young Man' image of Amitabh Bachchan with his super-hit film Zanjeer. In the following years, the director-actor duo went on to give us several super-hit films such as Hera Pheri, Lawaaris, Sharaabi, Namak Halal, Muqaddar Ka name a few. Unfortunately, Jaadugar, which was the last film of this duo, turned out to be a Box Office disaster. Prakash Mehra's last directorial venture was Bal Brahmchari, which marked the debut of Puru Raaj Kumar, the son of the late Raj Kumar. The film was a complete washout at the B-O and also happened to be the last film of Prakash Mehra. Needless to say that, Bollywood will really miss this filmmaker who gave us some of the most entertaining films of the 70's and 80's. In this hour of grief, Bollywood Hungama offers its heartfelt condolences to Prakash Mehra's family and prays that his soul rests in eternal peace.
