Arjun Hingorani Biography

Arjun Hingorani was a film director, producer and character artist of Hindi cinema of yesterdays. He also directed the first Sindhi film, Abana in 1958 which is the first credited role of Bollywood actress Sadhana Shivdasani. Popular actor Dharmendra also made his film debut through Arjun’s  Dil Bhi Tera Hum Bhi Tere in 1960. Thus he is credited to giving the first break to two big stars of 1960s, apart from making the first Sindhi film. He passed away on 5 May 2018. He made only a few films, less than 10 films, but most of his works remain memorable.


Arjun Hingorani was born on 15th Nov 1926. As a film director he joined film industry in the late 1950s, and directed the first ever Sindhi film, Abana, with south Indian actress Sheila Ramani playing the female lead. He joined Bollywood industry in 1960, through the film Dil Bhi Tera Hum Bhi Tere which also marked the screen debut of Dharmendra. Mukesh’s evergreen hit "Mujhko Is Raat Ki Tanhai Mein" filmed on Dharmendra belongs to this movie. Arjun made his next film Kab? Kyoon? Aur Kahan? after a long break of 10 years, working with Dharmendra once again. He also made a brief appearance in the film (his screen debut).


From there on, he made a series of movies mostly starring Dharmendra in lead role. Kahani Kismat Ki, Kaun Kare Kurbanie, Khel Khilari Ka, Karishma Kudrat Kaa and Katilon Ke Kaatil. Kaise Kahoon Ke... Pyaar Hai in 2003 was his last film, where he did the role of a producer, and the movie starred Dharmendra and Sunny Deol. The film launched his son Armit Hingorani in a lead role, and went unnoticed. Interestingly all these movie titles began with letter ‘K’ since his 1970 film Kab? Kyoon? Aur Kahan? and all his Hindi films starred Dharmendra.
