Vijay Anand was a director, producer, writer, editor and actor in Bollywood. But of all these he is remembered today as one of the eminent film makers in Bollywood. Vijay Anand has given Indian cinema some great hits and has thus won hearts all across the country.

Vijay Anand was born in Gurdaspur in Punjab on 22nd January 1934. He was fondly known as Goldie Anand. He was the youngest of the four Anand siblings. His brothers Chetan Anand and Dev Anand were also into Bollywood. Dev Anand was a very popular Bollywood actor and Chetan was a famous director. Infact Vijay Anand learnt the craft of film-making from his brother, Chetan Anand.

The Anand`s had an in-house production house namely Navketan Films. You will be surprised to know that when he was only 20 years old he wrote his first script Taxi Driver for Navketan. The movie was directed by Chetan Anand. Three years later he made his directorial debut in 1957 with Nau Do Gyarah. He shot the movie within 40 days.



His sound knowledge in direction and editing won him many awards. Some of the popular awards won by him are:

  • Filmfare Best Director Award for Guide in 1965
  • Filmfare Best Editing Award for Johnny Mera Naam in 1970
  • BFJA Awards as Best Editor for Double Cross in 1973
  • Filmfare Best Screenplay Award for Johnny Mera Naam in 1970
Some of the popular hits of Vijay Anand in Bollywood were Jewel Thief, Kala Bazar, Tere Ghar Ke Saamne, Ram Balram, Tere Mere Sapne and Rajput. But he is mainly known by his two greatest flicks namely Johny Mera Naam and Guide. Both the movies featured Dev Anand as the hero. These gathered huge responses in the Box-office from the very first week.

Based on the novel of R.K. Narayan, Guide, is his most critically acclaimed movie. His only non-Navketan film as a director was Teesri Manzil. This he produced for Nasir Hussain. As an actor, his most memorable roles were in films like Haqeeqat, Main Tulsi Tere Aangan Ki and Kora Kagaz.

He served a short stint as the chairman of the Central Board of Film Certification. He resigned from the post in 2002 because of ideological differences with the government. To the younger generation he is known playing detective Sam in the television series Tehkikaat. This great film maker died on 23 February 2004 due to a heart attack.
