Madhur Bhandarkar is one of those few directors who have looked to deal with sensitive subjects. Right from Chandni Bar to Satta to Page 3 and Traffic Signal all his films have dealt with issues, which have prevailed in the society but have always been ignored not only by the commoners, but by other directors too.
Madhur started his career assisting Ram Gopal Verma and made his directorial debut with Trishakti in 1999, which unfortunately did not work well at the box office. But then came Chandi Bar starring Tabu and Atul Kulkarni and the film won him a national award.
After that there was no stopping Madhur. Satta (Raveena Tandon), Aan, Page 3, Corporate and then Traffic Signal followed one after another. Madhur won the second national award for Page 3 and all the movies he made had exposed the faults in the system.
Madhur is currently working on his film Fashion and is toying on the idea of making a film on film awards. This film will deal with what happens behind every award ceremony and how awards are manipulated. Yet another bold film Madhur, but will you deal with the National Awards too?
