    v5 v6  
    66Hindi film director and actor. Born in Bangalore as Gurudatta Padukone. Educated in Calcutta. Studied dance at Uday Shankar’s India Cultural Centre, a dance academy, in Almora (1942-4).

    8 Met [[Dev Anand]] and was part of an informal group of ex-[[IPTA]] members at Navketan, the company that produced his first film, [[Baazi]]. Set up own production house with Baaz. Introduced [[Waheeda Rehman]] in [[CID]] (1956), propelling her to stardom through his films. Made adventure films, comedies (also starring in Twelve O’Clock) and love stories. Films often referred to social issues and exploitation, partly following [[Chetan Anand]]’s version of John Huston-type realism but imbuing them with thematic layers amid complex, richly stylised imagery (courtesy of cinematographer V.K. Murthy) and exquisite songs. Made India’s first CinemaScope film, [[Kaagaz Ke Phool]], which flopped. Refused to sign his films after that but continued as producer and actor. [[Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam]] was credited to his co-scenarist Abrar Alvi but is attributable to Dutt.
