This film, along with the blockbuster remake of Ben Hur, has earned him a huge name in Hollywood.

Now in the late nineties, he again starred in an award-winning film called Om Shanti Om. The film depicts how a young girl’s love affair with an army officer turns sour when she discovers that he is gay. The film won four Golden Globes for Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Director – Motion Picture. The success of Om Shanti Om paved the way for the release of his third film, Collateral.

Then in the year 1996, he featured in the award-winning film called Arabian Nights. This film depicts a middle-aged man who falls in love with a local woman in Saudi Arabia.

Then came the most talked-about film of all time called Brindja. This film portrays the true-life story of a young girl married off at a very young age. She is soon widowed when her husband deserts her. She then undergoes a terrible mental breakdown and starts to hallucinate.

At this point, her sister sends her on a pilgrimage to Mecca to seek solace. Here in Mecca, she meets an older man who Allah has blessed with the talent to read minds. Soon after, he becomes obsessed with reading minds and conveys this wisdom to the young girl.

He teaches her many occult skills, and when she returns home, she realizes what she had been reading. She vows never to read anymore and transfers to a monastery. However, this does not dampen the success of her film, and she returns to Hollywood to be in another great movie, Brindja.
