While many filmmakers excel in a particular genre, a few others gravitate towards underexplored territories of cinema. And that’s something better rather than getting cemented for a particular kind. However, while exploring different zones, the directors never miss out on their trademark theme. And that’s something Bollywood filmmaker Vikas Bahl is known for. Over the years, the director has explored every genre whilst entertaining the audience. And now, Bahl is all set to intrigue, entertain and stun the audience with his new dark-comedy thriller show Sunflower.

ZEE5’s Sunflower web series has been in the buzz for a while, all credits to Vikas Bahl’s out-of-the-box creation. A week ago, the show’s teaser was released which has gotten the fans highly excited. In this 60-second teaser, Bahl introduced us to a story that seems new in his school of thoughts. And this is what the audience loves about his approach towards cinema.

So, ahead of Sunflower’s release, here’s a quick peek into Vikas Bahl’s craft of filmmaking.

Vikas Bahl made his directorial debut with the children’s drama film Chillar Party. Released in 2011, the film went on to be a big hit among the masses. Bahl was appreciated for his conceptual story. The film also went on to bag the National Award for best children’s film. Vikas rose to fame with his debut flick and then in 2013, he yet again won our hearts through the film Queen. Featuring Kangana Ranaut, the film follows Rani who embarks on a journey of self-discovery.

The film beautifully lived up to its theme whilst entertaining the audience. And thus it became a major hit and is considered to be Bahl’s finest piece of work to date.  Later in 2015, he made Shaandaar which flopped at the box office but Bahl’s concept was appreciated by a set audience.

After exploring the romance genre, the director made the biographical drama Super 30. The film emerged as another hit for Bahl. Trying his hands across different genres, the filmmaker has always proved that his stories are uniquely entertaining.

Invested In Experimental Projects!

As a producer, Bahl has some interesting projects under his name. From Anushka Sharma’s NH10 to Vineet Kumar Singh’s Mukkabaaz, these films are still considered to be among the best in their respective genres. Well, we can say that Vikas always had an eye for good content.
