Sanatana influence on Subhash Ghai

He was indeed a voracious reader and while he was a student, his intense desire to read more took him to the classical Hindu epics of ‘Ramayana’ and ‘Mahabharata’ that has casted indelible influences on his psyche. When he was a student at FTII (Film and Television Institute of India), his passion to learn more, delve more into Indian experiences, perhaps in each household almost, proved to be a good exposure for him that has helped him immensely in his later career as a movie director. What was the mantra of his success? His passion to read and learn that turned into his profession. His films attracted millions of Indians from any part of India since each of those has had a story to tell and to listen to. This is a very rare capacity unlike the modern era when more concentration is given on technical excellences. Indians love to hear stories since they’re nurtured from the childhood in a surrounding atmosphere guided by Santana values. That’s the gateway of success. Thus speaks Subhash Ghai, one of the most successful movie makers in the history of Bollywood.
