Bhandarkar is being acknowledged for his outstanding work and contribution to the Indian cinema, which has made his type of movie making different, commercial and award-winning.

Madhur's cinema has always been looked up as a mirror to the society, which shows what actually happens in the existing world. But moving away from his kind of films, Bhandarkar is first time trying his hands at a slice of life rom-com titled DIL TOH BACHA HAI JI starring Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi and Omi Vaidya which he is currently busy scripting in as his next. Following will be Kareena Kapoor starrer, HEROINE, which will be a biopic on an actor's life, starting this December.
