Ma­neesh Sharma

DNA Sunday (Mumbai) - - FRONT PAGE -

He made his di­rec­to­rial de­but with the de­light­ful Band Baaja Baaraat and hasn’t looked back since. A re­sound­ing suc­cess, Band Baaja Baaraat star­ring Anushka Sharma and Ran­veer Singh won Ma­neesh sev­eral awards. His next, Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl based on John Tucker Must Die, though, re­ceived mixed re­views and was not a box- of­fice suc­cess ei­ther. How­ever, his third film Shuddh Desi Ro­mance ex­plor­ing the taboo con­cept of live- in re­la­tion­ships had the crit­ics and the trade giv­ing it a thumbs up. Cur­rently, the writer- di­rec­tor is work­ing on his next film, Fan star­ring Shah Rukh Khan. He will also be the first in­de­pen­dent pro­ducer to make a film Dum Laga Ke Haisa un­der the YRF ban­ner, which hitherto had ei­ther Aditya or his late fa­ther Yash Cho­pra as pro­ducer. The film will star Ayush­mann Khur­rana. For Ma­neesh, who started as an as­sis­tant on sev­eral YRF films, life has come full cir­cle!
