Sh. N.Chandra
(Films: Tejab. Narsimha. Pratighat. Ankush and many blockbusters)

Sh. N. Chandra, a renowned Indian film producer, director, and screenwriter, believes that to make Indian cinema, one must learn from Indian cinema. Chandra's impressive body of work includes gritty and realistic films such as Ankush, Pratighaat, Tezaab, and Narsimha, as well as Style and its sequel Xcuse Me.
Sh. N.Chandra's career in the film industry began as a film editor at Film Centre in Mumbai, where his father worked. He eventually moved up to become an assistant director and associate director, working on projects such as Anil Kapoor's Woh 7 Din. Sh.N.Chandra made his directorial debut with Ankush in 1986, a film about the struggles of unemployed men in Bombay. The film, made on a budget of Rs 12 lakh, went on to gross Rs 95 lakh, becoming a surprise hit of 1986.
In 1987, Sh. N.Chandra directed Pratighaat, a film on the gruesome reality of politics in India, which also highlighted the strong mental make-up of Indian women to the Indian youth. The following year, he directed Tezaab, which effectively launched Madhuri Dixit's career. The film became a box office hit, marking N.Chandra's third consecutive success after Ankush and Pratighaat.
Today, Sh. N.Chandra chairs the Film making department of IIP Institute of Cultural and Creative Arts, Noida, where he aims to educate aspiring filmmakers about the intricacies of cinema and how to achieve success in the industry. With his wealth of experience and knowledge, Chandra is a valuable asset to the institute, and his teachings will undoubtedly benefit the next generation of Indian filmmakers.
