Lekh Tandon is primarily an Indian director but has played a few roles in films as well. He was born on 13 February 1929 in Lahore (British India). He completed his schooling from Khalsa High School, Lyalpur. His father’s friendship with Prithviraj Kapoor proved to be a fortunate thing for Lekh’s career. On a holiday to Bombay, he stayed with Kapoor and toured the studios. This experience with Kapoor inspired him to make his career in the industry. He started as a cameraman under V.N. Reddy and later became an assistant director to Kidar Sharma. The turning point in Lekh’s career came when F.C. Mehra gave him the chance to direct ‘Professor,’ a family comedy starring Shammi Kapoor, which was released in 1962. After giving a super hit debut film as a director, he made back-to-back films for the next thirty-five years.

He is best known for two films apart from ‘Professor,’ the first one being, ‘Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye,’ a typical Bollywood drama film produced by Rajshri in 1977. The film won him the Filmfare Award for Best Screenplay in 19878. The second film, ‘Agar Tum Na Hote’ was also a box-office hit owing to a cast ensemble of Rajesh Khanna, Rekha, and Raj Babbar, and of course, a great storyline. In 1966, he directed a biopic on the life of Ambapali (the royal courtesan of Vaishali in ancient India) titled ‘ Amrapali.’ Though the film flopped at the box-office, it was held responsible for India’s entry into the 39th Academy Awards. Lekh has also directed many television serials which aired on channels like Doordarshan and B4U. His first venture into the television industry was ‘ Phir Wahi Talash.’ He has also acted in a few films like the Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘ Swades’ and ‘ Chennai Express.’ For a man beginning his career in the year of India’s independence,

Lekh has proved his devotion to his goals through a lot of struggle. He had to fight his father’s propositions first to make him an engineer and then run a chemist shop. He has recently turned producer and claims that none of his works make him proud.
