    6 Hindi director, scenarist and actor; elder brother of [[Dev]] and [[Vijay Anand]]. Born in Lahore. Worked for the BBC and taught at the Doon School, Dehradun. Went to Bombay to act in Hindi films. Played the lead in the [[IPTA]]’s stage production of [[K.A. Abbas]]’s Zubeida directed by [[BALRAJ SAHNI]] (1943). First film [[Neecha Nagar]] made in parallel with Abbas’s IPTA-backed [[Dharti Ke Lal]] (1946) and Uday Shankar’s [[Kalpana]] (1948) under government licence (required during WW2). Together with Dev Anand started Navketan Prod. (1949). Directed (and co-wrote with his ex-wife Uma) their début film, [[Afsar]], adapted from Gogol’s The Government Inspector. With composer [[S.D. Burman]] and lyricist [[Sahir Ludhianvi]], Navketan marked an influential transition of IPTA’s socialist realism into a brand of commercial Hindi cinema that drew from King Vidor, Capra, Huston and others to define a brief but crucial populist phase in Hindi films dealing with the working class (e.g. [[Taxi Driver]]). Influenced several cineastes such as [[Guru Dutt]], [[Mohan Segal]], [[Raj khosla]] and Vijay Anand. started his own himalaya films (1960) director associated with that genre, extending it into serial format for TV (Param Veer Chakra). His son, Ketan Anand, also became a director (Toote Khilone, 1978; Hum Rahe Na Hum, 1984).
