Mukul S. Anand wrote and directed Khuda Gawah, a 1992 Indian epic drama film. Amitabh Bachchan and Sridevi feature in the flick. In supporting roles, Nagarjuna, Shilpa Shirodkar, and Danny Denzongpa appear. Laxmikant–Pyarelal composed the original score. Sridevi and Amitabh teamed together for the third time in this film.
Badshah Khan travels from Afghanistan to India in the film to identify Benazir’s father’s killer in order to impress her. On May 7, 1992, Khuda Gawah was released in theatres to critical and economic acclaim. It received critical acclaim for its directing, storyline, acting, soundtrack, and production values, grossing a total of 17.05 crore globally, making it the third highest-grossing Indian film of 1992.
Khuda Gawah had luxurious production values and was widely shot in Afghanistan’s Kabul and Mazar-i-Sharif, as well as Nepal and India. During the 18-day shooting of the film in 1991, then-Afghan President Mohammad Najibullah, a fan of Bachchan, supplied security from the Afghan Air Force.
Sanjay Dutt was cast in the film and filmed some parts, but he was unable to complete it due to his widely publicized legal difficulties. Both Amitabh Bachchan and Shridevi won Filmfare nominations for their work. Three Filmfare awards were given to the film, including Best Director. It was the first Bollywood film to incorporate surround sound, according to India’s Limca Book of Records.
