Imtiaz Ali Coming with Jab We Met

Imtiaz Ali is coming with another love story based Bollywood movie titled Jab We Met. The movie is set to release on 26 October 2007. Imtiaz Ali may not be a much familiar director in Bollywood. However, it is expected that the upcoming movie will be a break though in her career. Imtiaz Ali get into Bollywood with his first movie Socha Na Tha. However, the movie failed to be successful in the box office.

Imtiaz Ali started his acting and direction from his school life. He acted and directed some plays. Imtiaz Ali also wrote some plays in her school life. He got involved in the dramatic society of Hindu College while studying there. However, his coming to Bollywood was not so easy as he had to struggle a lot to came to today’s position. His job as a production assistant in Zee TV opened the door for him as with this job he could first prove his worth. After three months he joined Crest Communication where he started as a concept director and gradually went on to get the creative director post.

Imtiaz Ali directed some television program in various television channels. Here, I am quoting some lines from one of his interviews published in Rediff:

I directed a serial called Purushetra, which was a talk show with [actress] Kirron Kher. I also directed Imtihan on Doordarshan and Star Plus.

Then I did Nayan for Sahara, X-Zone and Rishtey for Zee and Star Bestsellers for Star TV.

I directed serials for seven years. Television does not permit you to go beyond a level because of the budget. I started getting the feeling that I was not fit for the small screen. Now, I have found my place in films.

So, no doubt, Imtiaz Ali has sheer talent in him yet to flourish. He has the all the qualities to become a successful director of Bollywood. His upcoming movie Jab We Met cast two established actors of Bollywood Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor. Now, let us see if Imtiaz Ali becomes successful this time in the box office.
