Vishesh Films recently celebrated 30 years in the film industry. Brothers Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt already had a strong foothold in the industry before they started their production house Vishesh Films in 1987. With 53 films to their credit, together, they produced an array of path-breaking movies like Kabzaa, Ghulaam, Raaz, Ashiqui and others.
The Bhatt brothers have never shied away from taking risks. Known for their thrilling content and memorable characters, Vishesh Films served as the perfect launch pad for a number of actors in the industry like Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi or Kangana Ranaut.
Music is synonymous to Vishesh Films. The Bhatts’ impeccable taste in music has led to them producing chartbuster after chartbuster. Artists like Alka Yagnik, Ankit Tiwari, Mithoon or Shreya Ghoshal got their big break with Vishesh Films. Singing sensation Arijit Singh also had his first successful single with Aashiqui 2’s ‘Tum Hi Ho’.
Vishesh Films derived its name from Vishesh Bhatt, son of Mukesh Bhatt and nephew of Mahesh Bhatt. In 2006, Vishesh Bhatt wrote and co-produced the blockbuster `Jannat’. He was the first to introduce remixes within a mainstream film as seen in “Woh Lamhe” from Zeher. Creating franchises like Jannat, Murder, Raaz and Aashiqui 2 was a game changer by him, which is now a trend that the industry follows.
With 30 years coming up, Vishesh proposed venturing into a new form of storytelling. Mahesh Bhatt saw the critically acclaimed Srijit Mukerji’s Rajkahani and decided to make the Hindi version. Srijit and Vishesh teamed up together to make the first period drama with the largest ensemble cast for the production house ever.
We hope that they continue their journey unabated in the future too!!
