I was lucky to have worked with Ashok Mehta: Anil KapoorAugust 16th, 2012 - 2:02 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, Aug 16 (IANS) Actor Anil Kapoor is saddened by the death of ace cinematographer Ashok Mehta and considers himself lucky to have worked with him.
“Ever since the film industry began, there have been two-three great cinematographers and Ashok Mehta was one of them. I was lucky that I worked with him in at least eight films,” the 52-year-old said here Wednesday.
“Both of us started our careers together. I did ‘Pukaar’, ‘Ram Lakhan’, ‘Trimurti’ with him. I think he got National Award for ‘36 Chowringhee Lane’ and ‘Trikaal’. His work was terrific,” he added.
Aparna Sen’s “36 Chowringhee Lane”, Shekhar Kapur’s “Bandit Queen”, Shyam Benegal’s “Mandi” and “Trikaal”, Shashi Kapoor’s “Utsav”, Subhash Ghai’s “Ram Lakhan”, “Khalnayak” and “Kisna” and M.F. Hussain’s “Gaja Gamini” form the list of Ashok Mehta’s outstanding work.
He had also directed “Moksha”, which was also the launch pad of Arjun Rampal.
