Sanjay Leela Bhansali is among the few Indian filmmakers, who have managed to create a niche in the hearts of masses with their cinema and have redefined norms.

Sanjay received immense praises for his work in his debut movie, Khamoshi: The Musical, which stars Manisha Koirala, Salman Khan and Nana Patekar in the leading roles.
However, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's claim to fame was his much-acclaimed movies like Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Devdas, which established him as a true blue Bollywood filmmaker.
