Rajkumar Santoshi, the director of classic movies like Andaz Apna Apna, Damini among many others was admitted to Nanavati Hospital yesterday night after he complained about chest pains. But, his condition has now be concluded as being stable, after doctors performed an angioplasty on him. Rajkumar had joined the Kapoor family in mourning the unexpected demise of legendary actress Sridevi. His last movie was Phata Poster Nikla Hero, which was released in 2013 and starred Shahid Kapoor and Illeana D’cruz. Apart from that, he has made other classic movies in the latter century like Ghayal, Damini, Andaz Apna Apna, China Gate, Ghatak, Pukar and Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani.
He has been reportedly trying to make a comeback by collaborating with Anand L Rai but nothing has been confirmed as of yet. Rajkumar has had a very successful run of movies and is considered a very important director for the masala movies that were usually enjoyed by many.
His Damini, is considered one of the best women oriented movies ever in the Hindi film industry, as it highlighted a topic that was seldom chosen to be depicted on-screen. It has been hailed by many for its portrayal of rape, and how difficult it is for women to get justice when they’re up against more powerful authorities that would do anything in their power to stop the truth from coming out.
