The Enigmatic Director-producer Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra Is Turning 67 On July 7, 2020. We Wish The Wonderful Filmmaker Many Many Happy Returns Of The Day! Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra Made His Debut With The Supernatural Thriller, Aks, That Was Produced By Amitabh Bachchan, Who Also Played The Lead. Aks Didn't Make Much Of An Impression, Either With Critics Or At Box Office. Fortune Changed For Mehra With His Second Film, The Pathbreaking Rang De Basanti That Put Him In The List Of Filmmakers To Watch Out For. By 2020, Mehra Has Made Six Films By Now And Is Tidying Up His Latest, Toofan.
