Nanabhai Bhatt Film Director

Nanabhai Bhatt (born June 12, 1915 in Porbandar – died April 24, 1999 in Mumbai) was a well-known Indian film director and producer of Bollywood and Gujarati cinema, known for making over a hundred fantasy and mythological films, including Mr. X (1957), Zimbo Comes to Town (1960), Lal Qila (1960) and the blockbuster Kangan (1959) starring Nirupa Roy and Ashok Kumar. His first film, Muqbala (1942), was the first to feature the double-role or "twins" phenomenon in Indian cinema, wherein lead actress Fearless Nadia alternated between the good sister and the gangster's moll. The formula was subsequently emulated in numerous Hindi films. Bhatt, a Gujarati Brahmin, was the patriarch of the Bhatt family. He had five daughters and four sons, including noted film director and producer Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt, owners of Vishesh Films.
