    v3 v4  
    44 
    55 
    6 Accomplished Hindi actor, director and producer; younger brother of [[Dev]] and [[Chetan Anand]], nicknamed Goldie. Born in Gurdaspur, Punjab. Arts degree from the University of Bombay. Scripted [[Taxi Driver]] (1954) and made some of Navketan’s best films with Dev Anand, shaping Dev’s screen personality. Made [[Guide]], the first Indo-American co-production (US version directed by Tad Danielewski). Made remarkable musical sequences using location-derived sets (e.g. the song inside the Qutub Minar in [[Tere Ghar Ke Saamne]]) to achieve complex interactions between music, lyrics and story, at times evoking Western novelettes (Pearl Buck, A.J. Cronin) or Hollywood (Capra). Neo-realist overtones, inherited from brother Chetan, are used mainly as ballast to release the fantasy, a technique best exemplified by Guide and in the opening song of [[Kala Bazaar]]. Wrote some of the films he directed and edited (Kala Bazaar, Chhupa Rustom, also co-lyricist for the latter) and returned to starring roles in e.g. Chor Chor, Hum Rahe Na Hum, Double Cross; also scenarist for [[Hum Dono]] (1961) and producer of Jaan Hazir Hai (1975). Played Sam the Detective in the TV series Tahqiqat, initially directed by nephew [[Shekhar Kapur]].
