Jhamu Sughand Hindi Actor

Jhamu Sughand

Jhamu Sughand was an award-winning and acclaimed film producer and a distributor who produced some magnificent award-winning movies such as Lagaan (2001), Satya (1998), Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (1999) and Aks (2001). But before all this, before Jhamu Sugand could make a dent in the film-making business, he was absorbed in his family cloth trading business in Devlali his hometown in the state of Maharashtra. Then as luck would have it he averted from the cloth business and initialized his work in printing press business specializing in Film Merchandise after moving to Mumbai from Devlali in 1979. Later on, he shifted to film distribution in 1988. An impressive distribution of 100 films was not enough for Sughand to propel himself to the mainstream cinema until Mani Ratnam’s Bombay (1995) which sky-rocketed him to the enchanting Bollywood. Then there was no looking back, he went on to produce some brilliant movies such as Rangeela (1995), Chachi 420 (1997), Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (1999), Khoobsurat (1999), Astitva (2000, Marathi Cinema), Lagaan (2001), Aks (2001), etc. But his rise soon met with an exponential downfall as his career as a producer started to wither as he severed ties with his brother Harish Sughand, who in turn was a producer too. Later on, he stopped producing films and declared himself as bankrupt and sold his last film which was Gulaal (2009)directed by Anurag Kashyap. Sughand became a total recluse after that and confided in no one but himself and on May 26, 2008, he bid adieu to this world after suffering cardiac arrest. He was aged  57 at the time of his death. He is survived by his wife, a son and a daughter. Sughand had many big fans, from Amitabh Bachchan to Sanjay Leela Bhansali, you name it, and that artist would surely have had the pleasure of working with the amazingly talented Sughand. Mr. Bacchan praises Sughand for his outstanding contribution and support to the amazing Indian Cinema and identifies Sughand as the person who took great risks.  Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who already had the pleasure of working with Sughand, said that his vision as a film producer and the kind of films he wanted to see emerging on screen and minds of people were commendable and worth mentioning.  The awards that were swept away by Sughand’s produced films show that he was a true visionary who wanted nothing but to produce those films which would make people happy about life, cringe due to harsh realities and which could change the way people live their lives. We salute this great film maker who made movies stand out of the rest.
