2011 has been a cruel year for Hindi cinema in particular and for the entertainment industry in general. It has lost its shinning beacons who by their sheer presence and performance gave a new direction and idiom to the business of performing arts. On the eve of sad demise of Jagjit Singh here is a quick relook at the stars and the lead stakeholders of Hindi cinema who hung their boots permanently.


Jag Mundhra: He burst into the firmament of Hindi cinema with a powerhouse of film KAMLA that brought into light the dark underbelly of our society, the sale of women of lower strata for economic benefits and to be eventually used as a tool for sexual gratification. Then he shifted his base to Hollywood and started operating from there, and made scores of films dabbling mainly with sexual issues. It could be primarily owing to the fact that he was brought into a very conservative Marwari family, and therefore he wanted to let his notions of sex be brought into the public realm through the films that he made. After nearly two decades, in 2000 he again asserted his understanding of social issues associated with downtrodden by making BAWANDAR. It was a hard hitting film that turned many an apple cart in Rajasthan. At the time of his death he was making a film on Sonia Gandhi.
