In the last few years, head-honcho, Bhushan Kumar has catapulted himself as the topmost producer of today’s times. Bhushan’s banner T-Series is the strength behind a dozen or more films every year. Even in a year like 2020, T-Series kept entertaining the audience with back to back films. Now, yesterday as a reputed publication announced its nominations for the annual award show, T-Series films stood with the maximum nominations this time. With more than a staggering 55 nominations in various categories, the production house has set a new benchmark in filmmaking and great storytelling.
Picking a fantastic mix of commercial and concept-oriented films has always been Bhushan’s brainchild and it has worked out brilliantly for the team. Films like Thappad, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, Ludo, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, Malang, Street Dancer 3D and others have bagged the top places in the entire list of nominations, unveiled by the jury. In fact, Ludo and Thappad alone have bagged 18 and 17 nominations respectively, being the two top films on the list.
What’s more interesting is the diversity of genres of the projects that Bhushan had last year. While Anubhav Sinha directed Taapsee Pannu starrer Thappad was a riveting social drama, a multi-starrer Ludo directed and produced by Anurag Basu was a dark comedy enjoyed by all. Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior starring Ajay Devgn-Saif Ali Khan directed by Om Raut was a period drama mounted on a huge scale that worked wonders for the production, raking in over Rs 275 crore at the box office. There was Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Shubh Mangal Zyada Savdhaan jointly produced by Aanand L Rai and directed by Hitesh Kewalya, a thought-provoking comic caper that tackled the taboo behind homosexuality whereas Mohit Suri’s Malang with Luv Films was romantic action thriller and Varun Dhawan-Shraddha Kapoor’s Street Dancer 3D directed by Remo D’Souza set new standards in dancing.
Bhushan and T-Series have supported several acclaimed as well as new filmmakers and actors in their vision. And we’re sure just like the nominations, it will be T-Series dominating the main event as well and come back with the maximum honours!
