Winner, Best Screenplay, 2007
Gandhi, My Father is the cinematic debut of well-known theatre director Feroz Abbas Khan, a man respected not only for exploring new forms in Indian theatre but also for bringing Hindi theatre into the mainstream. He is best known for his adaptations of The Royal Hunt of the Sun, Death of a Salesman and perhaps his most famous play—Mahatma v/s Gandhi, which was extremely well received the world over. Proficient in various languages, Khan blends the Eastern tradition of story telling with Western sensibilities and modernity.
