The world of Cinema mourns the untimely demise of the talented director, Sanjay Gadhvi, who left an indelible mark on the industry. This morning, tragedy struck as Gadhvi collapsed in the lobby of his residence in Lokhandwala, leaving a void that can never be filled. He was 58.
Rushed to Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Andheri, the director, who once brought to life the adrenaline-pumping thrill of “Dhoom” and “Dhoom 2,” took his last breath, leaving the film fraternity and cinema lovers in shock.
Dhoom and Dhoom2 will forever be etched in the hearts of movie enthusiasts as the epitome of sexy, stylish action heist flicks in Bollywood.
Gadhvi’s genius presented stars like John Abraham and Hrithik Roshan in their most captivating, stylish, and badass avatars, creating an era that 90s kids still reminisce about with fondness. The craze of sexy songs, roaring bikes, mesmerizing wheelies, and unforgettable dialogues from those schooldays will now carry a bittersweet nostalgia.
Sanjay Gadhvi embarked on his Bollywood journey in 2001 with “Tere Liye” and continued to showcase his directorial prowess with films like “Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai” in 2002. However, it was in 2004 that he struck gold with “Dhoom,” a film that not only became a nationwide sensation but also catapulted Gadhvi into the limelight
The success continued with the huge blockbuster “Dhoom 2” in 2006, solidifying his position as a director. Despite his undeniable talent, subsequent projects like “Kidnap,” “Ajab Gazab Love” (a remake of Allari Naresh’s “Seema Tapakai”), and “Operation Parindey” failed to repeat the success of the Dhoom series.
