Who is Mansoor Khan?

Mansoor Khan, son of film maker Nasir Hussain, made his directorial debut with Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak which launched the career of his cousin Aamir Khan. The film, a soft Romeo-Juliet inspired romantic drama, was a huge success. Coming towards the end of a decade dominated by action-oriented films, Mansoor Khan's directorial debut paved the way back for the musical romantic genre in Bollywood. The film made many careers: Aamir Khan, Juhi Chawla, Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik and Anand-Milind.

He followed this success four years later with Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander. Mansoor Khan's last two films, Akele Hum Akele Tum and Josh, were moderately successful. Both movies, the first an almost identical screenplay to Kramer vs. Kramer and the other an adaptation of West Side Story were outside productions with Mansoor just being a director. Josh was the only film out of all the films he directed that did not star Aamir Khan but instead had Shah Rukh Khan in the lead.

Mansoor Khan attended several engineering colleges only to drop out and later pursued his career in Bollywood. He attended some of the very well known colleges like Sri Venkateswara College, Delhi, Cornell, M.I.T.
