Today is Rajkumar Hirani’s birthday. Rajkumar is counted among those Bollywood directors whose every film made has been a blockbuster. Every film of Rajkumar created new records. Rajkumar Hirani’s father was from Sindh (now Pakistan), who ran a typing school. He came to India after partition, but Rajkumar Hirani did not follow his father’s plan and thought of doing something big.
He was inclined towards theater and joined the Institute of Film and Television, Pune. He wanted to be a hero but during his studies he changed his mind and changed direction. In 1993, he turned to films. He worked for commercials and for the promos of ‘1942 A Love Story’ in 1994 and ‘Qarib’ in 1998. He then went on to edit for ‘Mission Kashmir’ in 2000 and ‘Tere Liye’ in 2001, though his actual journey began in 2003. Let us tell that his directorial debut film ‘Munnabhai MBBS’ came and the Sanjay Dutt-Arshad Warsi starrer film made a new identity of success.
