Mumbai, May 8: David Dhawan is back with “Chashme Baddor”! He has spent almost three decades in this Hindi film industry, and David says it is only on himself he can rely on when it comes to the success or failure ratio of the films. Born in Agartala, but brought up in Kanpur, David’s real name is Rajendra. He joined FTII to pursue a career in acting initially.
Then he changed his stream and joined editing course. It was Ritwik Ghatak’s Bengali film “Meghe Dhaka Tara” which made David ambitious of being a film maker himself. Soon he came to Mumbai to follow his dreams. It was Sanjay Dutt who gave him his first break as a director, recalls the director.
While talking about actors, David says his favourite actor till date is Govinda. Govinda was a late comer on the film sets, but then he is a fast worker, also his acting skills are superb. David added that he is writing one more film for Govinda as he wants to do a film again with the actor. Till now, the duo has done 16 films together. Talking of his emotional anchor and best friend in life, David says it is his wife Laly.
