Sanjay Leela Bhansali
Date of Birth: 24th February 1963
SLB began his Bollywood journey by assisting director Vidhu Vinod Chopra. Not long after, came his own directorial venture ‘Khamoshi’ which tanked at the box office but was critically acclaimed. His next movies ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’, ‘Devdas’ and ‘Black’ were blockbusters that put him in the B’wood big league. In the past few years though, his projects haven’t been too successful. ‘Saawariya’ (2008), which saw Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor making their debut, flopped as did ‘Guzaarish’ (2010) starring Hrithik Roshan. He is currently judging the Indian version of the reality show ‘X Factor’.
