Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra Career

Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra made his directing debut with the 2001 spooky film Aks. Amitabh Bachchan, Raveena Tandon, Nandita Das, and Manoj Bajpayee were all praised for their performances, but the movie struggled at the box office.

In order to independently produce movies, he established ROMP (Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra Pictures) in 2004. His debut movie under that banner was the coming-of-age Indian drama Rang De Basanti. The movie, which starred Aamir Khan, Siddharth Narayan, Soha Ali Khan, Kunal Kapoor, R. Madhavan, Sharman Joshi, Atul Kulkarni, and British actress Alice Patten, received rave reviews from critics and went on to win the 53rd National Film Awards for most popular movie of the year. The movie, which follows a British documentarian who is determined to make a movie on the Indian freedom fighters, was chosen as India’s official submission for the Academy Awards in the Best Foreign Language Film category and had a significant social influence in the nation.

The social and religious divisions in India are the subject of Rakeysh’s 2009 film Delhi 6. This movie won the Nargis Dutt Award for Best Feature Film on National Integration at the 57th National Film Awards event. Even though the film earned favourable reviews from reviewers, it lost money at the box office.

2011 saw the release of the film Bollywood: The Greatest Love Story Ever Told, which Rakeysh and Jeffery Zimbalist worked on together. The movie was well-liked and was selected for the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. The biography of Milkha Singh, a legendary Indian sprinter also known as “The Flying Sikh,” was produced under his direction and starred Farhan Akhtar. The following summarises the movie’s commercial and critical success from the India Today review: “Running with Milkha is an option. By taking part in this race, you can decompress from the stress of modern life.”

Mere Pyare Prime Minister will be released in 2019, whereas Mirzya, starring Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher, was released in 2016. He directed the 2022 sports drama Toofaan, starring Farhan Akhtar and Mrunal Thakur.
