    6 Hindi director born and educated in Bombay. Son of film-maker [[Nanabhai Bhatt]] whose Jeevan Rekha (1974) he scripted. Dropped out of college in 1970. Former assistant to [[Raj Khosla]]. Along with [[N. Chandra]] and [[J.P. Dutta]], one of an aggressive new generation of commercial Hindi film-makers whose early work was marked by psychological violence. Début film, [[Manzilein Aur Bhi Hain]], was banned for 14 months by the censors, allegedly for mocking the ‘sacred institution of marriage’. His melodramas about illegitimacy and extra- marital affairs are more successful on video than as theatrical releases. Soap-opera sentimentalism is often given a voyeuristic edge by claiming autobiographical sources (notably his breakthrough film, [[Arth]]). His successful 90s films are often love stories starring daughter Pooja Bhatt (Dil Hai Ke Maanta Nahin). Shifted increasingly to [[Doordarshan]] (e.g. Daddy) and made the first film production of STAR’s Hindi channel Zee- TV, Phir Teri Kahani Yaad Aayi. Wrote a biography of U.G. Krishnamurthi. Currently editor of a video film magazine, and the TV series Swabhimaan written by pulp novelist Shobha De.
