Born:October 14, 1967

Writer-turned-director, Sanjay Chhel first gained recognition for the one-act play he wrote titled Ubhi Chavi Adi Chavi. His subsequent plays Crossword Puzzle and Prakaran 1956 went on to become popular as well and he later worked in the TV industry. It was in 1993 that he debuted in the film industry with Ashutosh Gowarikar’s Pehla Nasha. The movie, however, didn’t help him much as it failed at the box office. A couple of years later, Sanjay went on to co-write the dialogues of the hit movie Rangeela (1995) along with Neeraj Vora. In subsequent years, he worked as a writer for movies such as Kachche Dhaage (1999), Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani (2000), Partner (2007), and Kismet Konnection (2008). In 1999, Sanjay turned director with the movie Khoobsurat which was declared as a hit at the box office. The next movie he directed, Kya Dil Ne Kahaa (2002), however, turned out to be a disaster at the box office. In 2017, he directed the movie Patel Ki Punjabi Shaadi starring Rishi Kapoor, Paresh Rawal, Vir Das, Prem Chopra, Payal Ghosh, and Jinal Belani. His 2017 releases includes the Hindi drama film, Indu Sarkar. Directed by Madhur Bhandarkar, the movie stars Anupam Kher, Neil Nitin Mukesh, and Kirti Kulhari in the lead.
