Rajesh Roshan Birthday Special

Rajesh Roshan: Hundred years ago, a child was born in a middle-class family of Gujranwala, Punjab, and he was named Roshanlal Nagrath. Unlike other children of his age, this young child was very shy and sensitive who was more interested in playing sarod than playing sports. His interest in learning not only Sarod playing but also many other musical instruments increased. So interested in his music, he later decided to choose music as his career, but how it would be possible, he did not understand until he came to Mumbai in search of livelihood. After reaching Mumbai, after many days of pashope, Uhapoh and all night vigil, he decided to pursue a career as a music composer in the Hindi film industry. First of all, he shortened his name to Roshan. At that time, he had no idea that he was laying the foundation of a dynasty that would later become world famous as Roshan Family or Roshan Khandaan and would become a strong pillar of the Hindi film industry.

Rakesh was not particularly interested in music though he had a wealth of music in the form of his musician father. He was more interested in acting. Rakesh had all the qualities to be a hero but he had to make his acting debut playing the role of a villain in the films of Sanjeev Kumar, Rishi Kapoor and many other heroes. With this, Rakesh was not satisfied with his acting career. Eventually he started his own film company named 'Film Craft' with the blessings of his wife Pinky's father i.e. his father-in-law, veteran well-known filmmaker, J. Om Prakash (who made successful super hit films in seventies and eighties). '. Initially, he made some out and out commercial films which did not work, due to which Rakesh, being dissatisfied, found the best director of South India, K. Vishwanath. K Vishwanath not only exposed Rakesh's acting prowess but also gave name fame and standing to his production company by directing his home production films, Kamchor, Shubhashna, Jaag Utha Insaan. While working with the same Vishwanath ji, Rakesh realized that he also had the qualities to make a film and what happened after that created a history of Hindi films.
